The infinite kineticism within man causes evolvement of various sensory orientations imparting a state of restlessness, peacelessness, sorrow to man.
“The world is now restless and loveless as no one has any direct objective. The direct objective is to know one’s own Prana that is make a quest for one’s own origin.” says Mahamahopadhyaya Yogacharya Dr. Ashoke Kumar Chatterjee at the Parliament Of World Religions 1997, France.
This infinite kineticism can be removed through Kriyayoga, only then will eternal happiness ensue and there will be a conferment of peace in a distressed world. Practice of Kriyayoga causes a gradual stilling of the kineticism of the soul, material craving will gradually take a backseat, soul – orientation will occur. The individual will develop wholeness.
The immortal, scientific, facile yogasadhana that Lahiree Mahasaya has imparted to us, if practised even a little conscientiously, will bring immense welfare to the person concerned. God has made a similar statement in Gita – Svalpamapyasya dharmasya trayate mahato bhayad. It brings deliverance from mental, physical and financial distress. By having faith in the precept of Guru, it is imperative for everyone to practise Pranakarma which is a supremely infallible remedy.
“In the present age most of the people do not practise this yogakarma, as a result their sensory faculties remain unrefined and because they are attracted by the superficial glamour of religion there is a great deal of injustice in the nation today.” – Mahamahopadhyaya Yogacharya Dr. Ashoke Kumar Chatterjee
This in a nutshell is the role of Kriyayoga in the 21st century but let us go back and cogitate on what Lahiree Mahasaya had remarked. “Material fulfilment never conferred and never can confer happiness” Kriyayoga being an eternal science, the terms religiosity or holism are thoroughly inapplicable to it. These are faddish concepts of modern day spirituality. KRIYA if considered as an acronym is karma reared intrinsically yearning for the ABSOLUTE hence kineticism removed through the intrinsic Yoga Absolute. Yogiraj Shama Churn Lahiree Mahasaya has poetised thus:-
“Merely crying for Prana makes one weary,
For mergence then is not one’s destiny”
The present world has to come to terms with reality i.e. The Prana – essence. If PRANA is regarded as an acronym it signifies – Pervasive Reality Allness Nothingness Absolute. Kriya is Prana-oblation. It is the Union of the kinetic soul with the Infinite Still Soul. PRANA is an Inherent Source and Power which is resplendent resplendence, the soundless sound, the fragranceless fragrance, the Formless Form, the boundless Boundlessness, all encompassing yet Nothingness. YOGIRAJ (i.e. Yogic oneness geared in the realm of Absolute Joy) has stated – “KRIYA PRACTICE IS CHANTING OF VEDAS”, ” KRIYA PRATICE CONFERS WELFARE, IT’S NON-PRACTICE NON-WELFARE; ONLY FOOLS PRACTISE KRIYA”, ” KRIYA IS THE TRUTH, EVERYTHING ELSE IS UNTRUE.”
At a time when the world is gripped with paroxysms of violence and discord; nuclear proliferation, ecological imbalance, the degradation – the world is surely searching for a way to extricate itself from this quagmire of uncertainty & misery, Lahiri Mahasaya & Kriyayoga arrive as a Saviour.
Why is Kriya the truth? Because it enables us to come to terms with existence that we all live in an illusory world, all perform illusory actions, all acquire illusory fame, wealth and recognition or illusory defamation, poverty and non-recognition which all are ephemeral. Yogiraj implicitly has desired His supremest creation man to shed off this illusory slough and inhabit with the real – the Inherent Intrinsic. For ardent regular Kriya practice only will enable us to know the truth about Prana and attain mergence with Him.
It is because of this if man steers himself away from the material splendours, as Yogiraj has commented “MONEY NEVER CONFERRED HAPPINESS OR EVER WILL” and realize it’s futility, he can attain realization of that ONE.
Why is the Kriya practisant a fool? Because all his material desires, ambitions, hankerings, sensory orientations have been annihilated. He now harbours one supreme yearning to know himself, his origin, his destiny, He becomes a true Soul seeker, strives meticulously, is suffused with love, firmly believes in the axiom of Yogiraj- “AGE MARJI MALIK KI.” – Now the will of the Supreme Being is the only grace which exists. The practisant then becomes an epitome of love, peace, tolerance and usher in the golden age of Satyayuga in its fullest form.
Yogiraj is Himself a Householder Yogi and He advocated all to remain householders and practise the sadhana by juxtaposing family existence with rigorous sadhana practice. This enhances the inherent beauty of Kriyayoga, hence Prana-worship, thus Sanatana Dharma. Therefore “PRACTISE KRIYA, REMAIN IN KRIYA’S TRANSCENDENTAL STATE, THIS COMPRISES ALL ADVICE”
