Kriya Yoga and Meditation Workshop

– Experience Mind-body harmony and health

1st and 2nd May 2020 | Taught by Prof R. S. Bhogal

Kriya Yoga techniques are nothing but simplified meditation techniques, evolved by the ancient sages, for the common house holders and the adept Yoga Sadhaka alike. These techniques are particularly helpful for those not having a native interest & orientation towards meditation but still wish to avail its benefits. This technique of Kriya Yoga is of Kaivalyadhama lineage that traces its origin in teachings of the Bhakti Yoga exponent Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

Benefits of Kriya Yoga

Researches and clinical evidences amply prove the efficacy of Kriya Yoga in managing and curing insomnia, migraine, tension headache, body ache, hypertension, diabetes anxiety and many other Emotional Disorders. An enhanced physical and mental stamina, a deep sense of contentment within and an equanimous stance amidst all odds around are some of the often reported benefits of Kriya Yoga.

How does Kriya yoga work?

Anuloma Viloma Pranayama cleanses the nadis to a sufficient degree for facilitating the optimal movement of Prana throughout the body. Omkar/Ameen/Amen disseminates the Prana, in a proper measure, throughout the body. Gayatri Mantra or any other mantra of your faith, acts as a very effective agent in protecting our Prana from all its abnormalities. Kriya Yoga, thus, channelizes the Prana, in most ideal manner, throughout the body. This results into a proper functioning of all our psycho-physiological systems, resulting into a vibrant immunity and a feeling of psycho-physiological balance which, in turn, lead us towards a meditative experience.

Special Feature of this technique

Simplicity in its practice and its sure-fire effects makes it probably the best of all 79 available Kriya Yoga techniques being practiced in India today. On mysticism plane too, many people have reported miraculous effects on all their worldly affairs, such as much better relationship with people around, smooth success in their professional and family life and so on.

Humble Request: Please be earnest to be a part of the traditionally chaste modes of practices.
