THE TREATISE ON KRIYA YOGA OF TRADITION “ANANDASVAMI”
1. My Teacher — “Joyful”. My Teacher – “ Beauty-beloved” . Mine respect to them.
2. Here is stated the Kriya-yoga, which given by great Teachers.
3. Out charity of my teachers, this treatise is given to those nice yogins which have not found the teacher on kriya-yoga, but are already full of determination and boldness to burn the karma. Or that, who has already studied kriya-yoga, but wishes to know all secrets of it.
4. In this treatise given all descriptions, carry out the exercise, how they are stated here. If in the description of exercises is something is not explained, and you don’t know how to act, do as you want and as you can. Therefore the same exercise can be carried out by different ways, but leads to one result.
5. Oh, disciple, know, that each exercises in this yoga named Kriya. Quantity of kriya is very big. The kriyas divide into: coming kriya, basis kriya and the muscle-strengthening kriya .Kriya means – carry out, clear, make, correct incorrectly made (i.e. negative karma). Remember, that in Kriya-yoga is very important to do kriya one after another, because it unties the knots of negative karma.
6. During performance of exercises the most important – is a continuous sensation of harmony inside of yourself
7. Everything, that destroys this harmony, should be ruthlessly rejected, whether it be excessive effort, or an indisposition and wrong ideas, or doubts, or insufficient concentration in internal sensations.
8. Doing the Kriya, forget about your rough body. Draw in the thin body, then in a causal body, and then reject also a causal body, becoming the master of a prana.
9. Study kriyas one after another, how they given in this treatise. In the future you can change these sequences in conformity with the needs. Just as letters study through recurrence of the alphabet, similarly to it, the kriyas study through performance of the certain sequences – circles of kriyas. And in the future when letters are studied, you can make them in words, as in kriya-yoga, having studied the alphabet kriyas, we can make own sequences of exercises.
10. Do the kriya during the fixed time, for example – 108 repeating of kriya mantra (about 75 seconds), or the fixed number of times, for example 27 times, or use two these metods.
11. Keep in a secret your Kriya-mantra. It is Shakti (energy), undoubtedly.
12. If you wish to have health and beautiful body, make Kriya-yoga dressed in the sky (i.e. without any clothes). So make kriya in or out of house, and the bad weather let not frighten you.
13. Carrying kriya, don’t talk. Keep silence. Try to study in each please , where nobody can disturb you.
14. If you haven’t such please, study where you can, take no notice of anyone. So you will subordinate to yourself all of energy of that place.
15. Don’t wit for favorable time for practice kriya-yoga, start right now. If don’t make yoga, time is your enemy. If you are making yoga — time is your defender.
16. When you will have success in usual kriyas, then you can carry out transitive (pranical kriyas), Kriyas of the union, and another kriyas, which given for devoted yogins. — All in This Magic world of perpetual changes – is movement around the gospel truth. Only coming near, you will find happy rest of enlightenment. But if you will stop, not attain the gospel truth, the pain will come soon.- But be wise, oh nice yogin, and find your own rhythm of life. Remember, if you will move slowly, your “bed” karma will overtake and surpass you, an you will suffer from it. And if you will move too quickly, you will overtake your “bed” karma, which is run away from you. Both slowly and quickly is unreasonable.- But, more better to move quickly and overtake your karma, than to move slowly and lag behind.- Remember that’s all then you are doing kriya yoga. Find your own rhythm, and know that this rhythm will also change. One day you will want to move quickly and with effort. In another – you will move hardly. Only your own sensations will prompt you haw to do.- It is impossible to attain any results without practice. Only with practice you will attain any results and understood kriya-yoga, yoga of action.- When you are doing kriya, you understand, that you can control your bodies and your Mind. Use the kriya for change yourself.- Do Kriya thus, that your bodies don’t disturb to you, without pain and discomfort. If you feel pain, be indisposed, feel nausea, at the same time slow dawn or stop kriya.- Pain and kriya — are incompatible. If there is a pain, there is no yoga. — Making kriya, you’ll feel heat in different sites of body, in backbone. Behind heat will come feel of thin energy. Then you’ll feel your own channels and centers. Then you’ll see it, as clearly, as it is behind you.— In this yoga every thing is attain from rough to thin. First you feel rough sensation, then more and more thin sensations, then the most thin sensations.— To every kriya correspond, its own vibration, which heard as hum of the letter in different centers. Making kriya you’ll feel vibration of energy as vibration of sound.— If you confirm in that vibration, you can call to mind that vibration, and get the action of kriya. Pronounce mentally or in voice this sound, you’ll get action of kriya from thin to rough.— Doing kriya, get state, when your body doesn’t disturb to you, when you are doing, and want to do. When your Mind don’t tell you what to do, only observe, and you observe a Mind. Its help to be divided with your Mind.— Watch an emotions and ideas, which coming. — From some time ideas becomes ever less and less, an you’ll clear your Mind from any ideas. Such, you’ll become master of thought. — Pull out your EGO from your bodies, thoughts and feelings, as a sword from sheath. Destroy karma each action, ground it in dust and sand, as millstones grain.— Don’t thing about breath, let it taka care itself. When you’ll attain perfection in kriya, you’ll combine breath and kriya. Such, you’ll attain happiness.
