  1. Kriya Yoga is for holistic development of the body, mind & soul. Our Gurudeva has tailored Kriya Yoga to suit the needs of all generations.. as an effective amalgam of Pranayam, Sense Control, Yoga & Meditation.

    Pranayam improves oxygen assimilation in the body, especially the brain. Sense control helps tune in & tune out at will to various external stimuli.. like noises from far & near. Yoga improves blood circulation, and keeps the muscles & joints in perfect shape.

    With such exemplary fitness of body & mind, when one sits in meditation, he takes-off in contemplation, with ease towards self-realization. Dear Gurudeva, Pranams for blessing us with the profound Kriya Yoga, simplifying it for “ëno baaratha nannantha jeevi”. You’re our gati (savior). We’re practicing Kriya Yoga, and will live up to your expectations. Jaya Guru Datta, Your Puttuji.

    Kriya Yoga isn’t a subject for waxing poetically with lots of words–it is true heart to heart communication with Swamiji and all of creation…what to say? Only practice, practice, practice!

    Yes Appaji. This MMS is for me. I have never put in efforts to learn Kriya Yoga though I have access to the best teachers of Kriya Yoga. Please give me the mind and the resolve to strike this off my to-do list. I have been procrastinating this for so many years and that does not make me feel good. Help me overcome this shortcoming. JGD Appaji!!

    Since now I thought, that Guru Yoga is for me the best way. But I want also try to go the way of the Kriya Yoga. Soon I make a course where I will learn more about it. After it needs some discipline to make the exercices. I hope that I will have the power for practicing all, what I do now and what I will do in future. It is a lot! But without some work nothing will go. I will do as much as possible!!!!

    Great MMS video. Pujya Sri Swamiji has tailored Kriya yoga to suit modern day lifestyle. With simple breathing techniques and practicing regularly we can control our senses and be in the path of self realization. Thank you Appaji for bringing Kriya yoga to current generation.

    Datta Kriya Yoga, our Sadguru Sri Swamiji’s special brand of Kriya Yoga is most definitely the surest and the most treasured way to attain Self-Realization. Not only the surest way, but it is the easiest and the most pleasant, entertaining, and enjoyable way. I had never laughed as heartily as I did during the Kriya Yoga camp in Mekedatu in 1998. I had never eaten such delicious meals as I did then. I had never before enjoyed such wonderful company of a Sadguru and co-learners. Sure, my legs hurt to sit for so long, and Appaji laughed heartily daily at our fidgeting in discomfort. The journey that started then continues, with ever varying activities, and never a single dull moment in between. The course continues, although the camp ended in a week. Lessons come daily, each and every minute. They shape the personality, the mind, they guide the hands, and they mold the expressions and change the approach to life itself. Each passing moment takes me closer to the final moment of total liberation. The progress is palpable and obvious. It is undeniable. There is never a doubt or suspense. It is rapid. Like water seeping into a leaky boat, bliss is seeping into the heart fast, soon to drown me in the ocean of eternal bliss! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sadguru Sri Swamiji, our dearest, most beloved Appaji! Jaya Guru Datta

    Kriya Yoga was for me an excuse to see Swami Ji. In fact I was not that interested to do a course. Doing Kriya Yoga I see methode what has a direct effect on body and mind. I thank Swami Ji for his knowledge

    • Glory of Rama on September 30, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Datta Kriya Yoga is an invitation from God to join a divine celebration that does not accept regrets in the rsvp. Once you accept the invitation and step into the activity, you are led with certainty to the ultimate goal of Supreme Reality and Eternal Bliss. Lord Dattatreya, the Guru of all Gurus, knows exactly how we are made and how to effectively guide our paths so that we stay on track joyfully making progress on the journey. There is no hardship here. There are no impossible schedules or bodily twists and turns required. There are no scary hurdles to leap over. There are no contests to win and no competitors to defeat. There are no physical, mental, or emotional stringent requirements to be met, like in a military boot camp. It is a one-on-one daily dialog with God who is now present in our lives in the form of our most loving Sadgurudeva Appaji, with an exchange of smiles of joy and peace, deep love, intimate messages, warm heart-to-heart hugs and a total merging of souls. There is no higher bliss in life than the practice of Datta Kriya Yoga done with love, relaxation, and deep devotion. Sri Guru Datta

    Jaya Guru Datta! Thank You for today’s lesson, Puttuji! I’ve been fortunate enough to attend Kriya Yoga classes during Sri Swamiji’s visits to the US. Kriya Yoga does seem to be tailored to our time, keeping it simple yet giving us a lot of benefit from practice. Following the practice of Kriya Yoga eases the path for discipline in all other aspects of life. It’s not just about physical fitness, but is a wholesome journey of the soul towards Godhead. It calms the mind, helps us in our decision making and gives us the pure, unbridled joy that nothing else in the world can bring. Obeisances to the Holy Lotus Feet!

    • mukund mohan on September 30, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Jai Guru Datta !!

    Thank you Appaji, for giving us Kriya Yoga. Besides being the most efficient way to self-realization, it is also the most efficient way to come to the optimal plane to receive the divine energy YOU shower upon us. It is also the surest way to communicate with Pujaya Sadguru deva and fixate our minds on HIS Holiness wherever in the world HIS Holiness may be.

    Thank you Puttuji, for explaining the benefits of pranayama and yoga succinctly and for explaining how Pujya Gurudeva has assimilated all of their benefits and much much more in HIS Kriya Yoga teachings. We will surely practice !!
    Sri Guru Datta Hauman Ki Jai !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namaha!!

    Jai Guru Datta,
    yes indeed!!! Sometimes I wake up in the morning, feeling miserable. After some 30-40 minutes of pranayama all unwellness is gone!!! Of course this is not selfrealization, but it shows the strong effects of this sadhana. And Rome wasn´t built in 1 day, as they say, so, there´s still a chance – with the grace of our beloved Sadguru that we at least get some glimpses of what we actually are.
    Prostrations to Him, that teaches us such inmeasurably valuable tools.
    Sri Guru Datta.

    just yesterday I read the transcription of sri swamiji speech to kriya yoga students 2001 in Hasliberg, where swamiji shortly after His accident had come to switzerland. because of sri swamijis broken arm and the operation he program was first cancelled and when sri swamiji decided to come in spite of the injury our joy knew no bounds. addressing the kriya yoga class sri swamiji said:
    I feel so fortunate and grateful to be able at last to practise and exercise sri swamijis kriya yoga and the datta kriya yoga, and to do it with the great joy our beloved sadguru infuses in those who follow His advises.

    Jaya Guru Datta. Dearest Mother Sri Swamiji, I love You and I love Your Datta Kriya Yoga. Regular practice brings purification of bad qualities like anger, jealousy, etc. It helps with anxiety and depression. It even shows You Your real self which is Bliss itself. It is hard for me to say what experiences happened because of Sri Swamiji’s darshan, Datta Kriya Yoga Practice, mantra japa, Swamiji music, etc. It is all by Mother Swamiji’s Grace. Datta Kriya Yoga is an amazingly powerful tool given by God Himself to show you God, your true nature as Bliss and so many indescribable things. Jaya Guru Datta Sri Swamiji for this gift and for the Datta Kriya Yoga instructors You have given to this world to help us realize our true selves. I love You and Your Datta Kriya Yoga. Sri Guru Datta

    Sri Swamij’s Datta Kriya Yoga changed my life. Attention to the breath brings peace in the body and mind. Not so many thoughts shooting every which way. It really does make a difference in my daily routine. Every day. Jaya Guru Datta

    Dieses MMS freut mich sehr. Ich erlebe sehr viele Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten im täglichen Üben von Datta-Kriya-Yoga.
    Lieber DATTAGURU, danke für dieses wunderbare Kriya-Yoga, besonders auch für die erweiternden Körperübungen.

    • Joseph on October 10, 2012 at 9:53 am

    Kriya literally means action and yoga is union of self with supreme being. But this is not suggested in all systems of practise! May be it is easy to practise this with the sense that, it is simple part of concentration over all pervading almighty and awareness to observe omnipresent almighty in entire universe and within us too. But I still wonder about the benefits of Kriya yoga because the regular pranayama part is in practise to maintain health, it’s connection with self-realisation is still a query to me. Hope I’ll practise it and get all the benefits of Kriya yoga.

    Kriya yoga is the means of Self realization ~ 30 Sep 2012

    Namaste Puttuji, nice video with suiting and melodious bhajan. Kriya yoga is the surest and the most efficient means of self realization. Appaji developed Kriya yoga suitable to present era. It is one of many gifts of Appaji to the mankind. Health also is very important for a sadhaka. But one should not have obsession in health care. Kriya yoga teaches how to maintain health of a body and mind and many ways of spiritual practice. Dharma stoopa symbolically shows that Kriya yoga is one of the way to attain nirvana or realization. Through Datta Kriya Yoga facebook, Appaji is giving valuable teachings everyday. Thank You Appaji for all Your effort. Namaste Puttuji.

    Kriya Yoga is the means of Self-Realizition – 30 Sep 2012

    Sri Swamiji has been emphasizing on practicing Kriya Yoga for our physical and mental wellbeing. We have learnt some basic types of pranayama and exercises that keep our mind calm and body healthy. When the body and mind are healthy, it becomes possible to carry out spiritual practices. Constant practice of pranayama aids in controlling and focussing our minds. I beg Sri Swamiji to help us overcome our laziness and practice Kriya Yoga steadily in our lives. Jaya Guru Datta
