Kriya Yoga Philosophy and Practice
CSE offers several classes to study Kriya Yoga philosophy, learn the practices, and prepare for initiation. The basic practices of Kriya Yoga are study, contemplation, and meditation; self-disciplined cultivation of the virtues; and surrender of the sense of being separate from the source of life. Each of these components of the path is supported by specific study and practice techniques. A progressive program of spiritual study and practice in the tradition of Kriya Yoga is available at the Center. Kriya Yoga initiation is available for students who are prepared.
The dedicated practitioner of Kriya Yoga follows the guidelines found in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita. Followers of various religions will find that the study of scripture in their established tradition can be enhanced by the disciplines of Kriya Yoga as well.
