10. How does Himalayan Kriya Yoga relate to Lahiri Mahasaya and Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings?
  • Himalayan Kriya Yoga is rooted in the same lineage of knowledge as described in Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi." Both practices originate from the teachings of the legendary Mahaavatar Babaji. However, while Lahiri Mahasaya's Kriya Yoga emerged in the late 19th century to suit the needs of that era, Himalayan Kriya Yoga is an updated version for the 21st century, channeled through the direct disciple of Babaji, Dr. Pradeep Ullal.

11. How does Himalayan Kriya Yoga relate to Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan?
  • Kundalini, as a concept that dates back centuries, goes beyond the branded "Kundalini Yoga" developed by Yogi Bhajan. Kriya is one of the methods that naturally and gently facilitates the awakening of Kundalini energy. Kriya prepares the body for the flow of Kundalini energy, making it a harmonious part of this ancient science.
