    Sri Dasguptaji used to describe the secrecy of Kriya Disciples of Lahiri Mahasaya used to be told to keep the teachings a closed secret and not to talk about it even with friends and relations who were not initiated into the secrets So religiously this direction was followed that in cases even Kriya performers living as neighbours over twenty years did not know each other as members of the same spiritual fraternity Swami Satyananda writes The neighbors of a Kriyavan sadhaka in some cases even people in the same house would not know about the sadhaka s initiation or practice There were disciples in the uppermost levels of society high government officials very wealthy and eminent devotees such as Paresh Kaviraj Mahasaya Shyamadas Vachaspati Kaviraj Mahasaya Kashi Naresh Maharaj Jotindramohan Thakur etc Even though He had disciples such as these from the highest positions and of the greatest eminence He did not encourage anyone to do external propagation It has been heard that Kashi Naresh s royal doctor became very enthused at wanting to spread the name of Kashibaba when the Lord stopped him from that endeavor Yet these days people want to make Kriya Yoga lineage trees These days many things have changed regarding both Kriya as well as the way it is now taught We prefer to keep to ourselves and not be contacted with questions or recommendations about all the various teachers abounding these days Things have been a mess for a long time Sri Dasgupta Mahasay himself had written in his book Kriya Yoga There may be quite a good number of Kriya performers who have been taught the Second Kriya the number doing the Third is very low The cases of performers of the Fourth Kriya is extremely rare hardly a few Swami Shri Yukteshvar had given the Fourth Kriya to only one disciple and the latter had taught one or two more Similar is the case with the other celebrated disciples of Shri Shri Lahiri Mahasaya That is simple fact Years ago Sri Dasguptaji used to say Now they all claim to have everything all these Gurus who are everywhere They all say they have it all He used to lean forward and chuckle and say From where did they get it It is impossible to keep track of who is teaching correct and who isn t nor do we have any interest in this We only give the general advice to people that almost everyone teaching Kriya these days is a complete fraud The fact is many people teaching Kriya these days are doing so without permission Of course they all claim to have been authorized by their Gurus but it is not true They have authorized themselves they are nothing more than self proclaimed teachers Genuine sages are the rarest treasure on this earth People are under the impression that they grow on trees they do not We have no recommendation and information or any comment on who is real and who

  • Important Information about the Commentaries of 
Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri Mahasaya - Yoga Niketan
    during this transition of ages in the land of Arya India for the spiritual revelation of sadhakas the progenitors of beneficence for all human beings With Sriguru s support His Holiness Swami Sriyukteswar Maharaj ji also began to publish an exquisite Gita approved by the Lord chapter by chapter with his own commentaries based on his own realization from Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri Mahasay A Biography by Swami Satyananda Giri English Translation by Yoga Niketan Team for Yoga Niketan copyright Yoga Niketan They are in fact recorded talks put down on paper by various disciples from intimate scriptural talks given by the Yogiraj Some of these were recorded more accurately than others Some were recorded close to exact as the Yogiraj spoke them from His Samadhi state hence the sometimes broken and irregular grammar and incomplete sentences In lofty spiritual Samadhi one often speaks like a drunk man which the English translators have gone to great pains to intentionally maintain in this exacting English edition Others such as Yoga Sutra commentary are more liberal and polished and only based on Yogiraj s general teaching on the matter while the disciple who recorded them admittedly expanded and elaborated and polished the commentary For example in Introduction of Yoga Sutras we find the following To be able to completely take in the essence of Patanjal is extremely difficult for anyone other than Guru initiated persons Although it is possible that an intelligent reader can come to some understanding of the gross matters upon reading the work two or three times with a concentrated mind but the techniques of sadhana and certain terms that seem to be easy to understand but whose meanings are deep and hidden comprehending the meanings of those techniques and terms are in a way impossible The commentaries on all of the sutras that are presented here all of those were received from and by the Grace of a Certain Great Saint and because the language of those commentaries was very complex those commentaries are presented here in as simple a language as was possible and is extended in some places where it was necessary Thus it can be hoped that these simplified commentaries can be of use to both initiated and uninitiated people But if any part of the fundamental essence is destroyed that is no doubt my fault done by me To the best of my abilities I have taken care to make it understandable for ordinary people So please bear this in mind as you approach these commentaries The true teaching as taught by Yogiraj is that by arduous performance of Kriya the truth of these scriptures is known Hence he never placed undue importance on books In the Garland of letter we find his cautionary words Practicing Kriya IS the reciting of the Vedas When through practicing Kriya over and over one perceives the state beyond Kriya THAT is the revelation of Vedanta That should be perceived by doing Kriya What can happen by looking
