The Kriya Yoga which I am giving to the world through you in this nineteenth century,” Babaji told Lahiri Mahasaya, “is a revival of the same science which Krishna gave, millenniums ago, to Arjuna, and which was later known to Patanjali, and to Christ, St. John, St. Paul, and other disciples.” . . .
“Give Kriya to all who humbly ask you for help. Repeat to each of your disciples this majestic promise from the Bhagavad-Gita [II:40]: Swalpamapyasya dharmasya trayate mahato bhayat. [‘Even a little practice of this dharma (religious rite or righteous action) will save you from great fear (mahato bhayat)’ — the colossal sufferings inherent in the repeated cycles of birth and death.]” . . .
Babaji has promised to guard and guide all sincere Kriya Yogis in their path toward the Goal. . .
“Whenever anyone utters with reverence the name of Babaji,” Lahiri Mahasaya said, “that devotee attracts an instant spiritual blessing.”

People will miss a few important words
Help all those who humbly ask you. Those words were told to Lahiri Mahasaya.
Most people believe that they are worthy and are unable to be humble. The kind of humility needed is similar to a beggar asking a king for a morsel.
Yes I know. Painful. Truth is we have zero spirituality. I mean zero zero. All the books you have read and scriptures you have memorized are worth nothing.
The fundamental path – sushumna has to be opened.
If you ask is my sushumna open it is not. If you do not know very clearly what sushumna is and what the external manifestation is then you still have a few steps to take
Kriya requires this essential step. It is not a method or technique alone.
Secondly this knowledge of kriya does not continue for ever. It reveals itself for 2-3 generations and then disappears. Why? Disciples become egotistic, proud, and without any information start preaching. Right now every other person on the blog talks about kriya. Proud and Smug. And stuck with incomplete knowledge. Refusing to go forward
This malady is true for all generations of spirituality. A few of my fellow disciples have very foolishly undertaken a self styled title of Guru. One of them has no knowledge, and has gone to darkness. Needless to say such people become very popular
The highest of fellow disciples are totally unknown. Their level is so high, perhaps highest in the world, no one can ever know them. There is nothing we can give them and I have tried to reach them. But what anyone do to get their attention?
Babaji responds instantly to such high people. But they never call upon Babaji! They will endure rather than trouble Babaji even remotely. It is only a loving heart grabs the attention of such people. Loving heart with reverence and purity.
I have written more about Kriya elsewhere in my blogs. But it is not easy to find and I don’t know where it is!
