Kriya Yoga Tips

Kriya Yoga Tips:

Kriya Yoga is a very old and scientific yoga practice. It was very popular in ancient India around 19th century.  The ancient texts like “Hatha Yoga Pradipka”, “Shiva Samhita” and “Bhagavad Gita” mentioned the usefulness of these methods in harmonizing body and mind in our day to day life.

Circulating the bio-energies in our body is the key element of kriya yoga practices. Kriya yoga ignites the dormant cells in our spine. As soon as the dormant cells of our spine are lighted up, the toxins from our body are gradually eliminated and we feel lighted both in body, spirit and mind. Kriya yoga helps us to supply optimal oxygen and energy to each cell of in our body.  It helps us to eliminate the metabolic waste more efficiently. Kriya yoga uses asana, pranayama and mantra practices.

The basic steps of Kriya yoga practices are discussed in our earlier post. Here, we will discuss some useful tips for daily kriya yoga practice:

  1. First spread good will to yourselves. Then spread good will to others. Let everyone be happy.
  2. Accept and Relax:  Sit silently and listen all the sounds happening around you. Suddenly, you will fell some energy moving upwards along the spine. Just feel the energy flow in your body. You don’t need to do pranayama at that moment. Just feel the movement of the prana.
  3. Chant a mantra mentally and slowly. The mantra may be any thing that gives good energy to your body and mind. If you do not have any specific mantra. You may chant long Om mantra.  The mantra chanting should be effortlessly.
  4. Put your awareness just two inch below the naval. Feel the sensations around that area for few minutes.  Chant your mantra in that area for eleven times.
  5. Gradually, move your awareness along the spine. Feel the sensations inside the spine at different chakras along the microcosmic orbits. By putting awareness try to awaken your dormant kundalini energy.

Kriya yoga is a gradual process. It takes few months to master the practices. Along with the practices explained above, Kriya pranayama is to be practised regularly in the morning.
