Kri and Ya
The word Yoga comes from the root yuj. It has 32 meanings in Sanskrit, but the most appropriate here is to unite. The union of the individual Self with the Cosmic Self, the child of God with God, the Father. Therefore, the body with the Soul is Yoga.Kriya Yoga is a supreme science of Selfrealisation. It is a scientific technique of action with constant Godconsciousness, which ultimately leads to realisation going beyond the body, mind, intellect, thought, and even the world, to Soulconsciousness.To perceive the Soul in every breath, in every moment, in every action, in everything and every being is Kriya Yoga. By the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation, one aspires to lead a life of divine consciousness, which ultimately brings love, purity and joy.
