This fully illustrated book is the most complete text available on the theory and practice of Kriya Yoga. The Spiritual Science of Kriya Yoga takes the student step-by-step through the eight stages of Patanjali's Kriya Yoga system and contains extensive chapters on hatha yoga pranayama, mantra, meditation and samadhi. Goswami Kriyananda explicitly teaches how specific asanas can be used to balance each of the seven charkas. If you could only have one book on yoga, this would be it!

It is my sincere hope that you find this book meaningful in balancing your life and developing greater discipline, wisdom, and spiritual maturity. For over 40 years, the essence of my teaching has been the simple truth that the earth life and the spiritual life are one -- your life. I offer these teachings that you might find the bridge of wisdom that unites your inner and outer worlds.
You are the creative principle. Only you, for yourself, can take those teachings and make them your own, bringing you to the realization of your fullest potential. It is my continual meditation that your life be filled with ever greater wisdom, love, light, and laughter.
Goswami KriyanandaFrom the Inside Flap:
This text has been written to give you a deeper understanding of the basic why's and wherefore's of the philosophy and disciplines of yoga.
The Vishnu Purana, one of the ancient spiritual texts of India, points out that each and every person will know when mankind has entered the Dark Age (kali yuga): 'When society reaches the stage that property confers rank, where wealth becomes the only source of virtue, where passion is the sole bond between man and woman, and where falsehood is the source of success.'
The purpose of this text is to assist you in searching out the inner way. The inner way is the release from externalized values that have only mechanized and brutalized man's mind, causing him to destroy that which is beautiful and meaningful. This text is a spiritual map for the conquest of the inner life and the exploration of the cosmic universe that dwells within. Some of the more closely guarded secrets or techniques that will help you to walk the pathway are given. This, therefore, is a manual for mystics.
The purpose of this manual for mystics is to move you from the realms of secondary and tertiary thought back to the mainstream of primary cosmic consciousness. You can establish in a given lifetime perfect health, perfect happiness, or perfect knowledge. You can improve the karma of this lifetime!
This idea was eloquently expressed by a holy man in India. We were sitting in a railroad station. I asked him if the train was on time. He answered, adding,
Few souls are as noble as the locomotive, having the capacity to move in and of itself, and having the power to move others.
