"The Vision [Darshan] of Kutastha is also a Kriya - it is He whom yogis worship - Omkar Kriya - the oblation of yajna by yajna itself (Thokar with sealed breath).

From Sanyalji's comments on this sloka:
 
"The sadhana done by some  yogis is known as godly--yajna. This is dependent on the Kheechari -sadhan (yogic mudra) but nothing from outside. Only the pran is sacrificed in the Brahm -light or flame.  Taking the pran vayu (or breath) from the passage of the susumna to the mooladhara, is the personification of, or realization of the Almighty in the beings soul. This is known as "Omkar Kriya", and it is the Brahm Yajna."
- Sri Sanyal Mahasaya from Spiritual Gita 4:25, English translation by Smt. Chandrakanta Agarwala

“Bowing to you from the east, from the west, from the north and the south---from all sides. This bowing is the form of the Omkar Kriya, which has to be done repeatedly to pierce the knot of the heart”.
 
- Sri Sanyal Mahasaya from Spiritual Gita 11:40, English translation by Smt. Chandrakanta Agarwala

"If one enters completely in the prana-vayu in the middle of the eyebrows, then - Sat - one sees the Supreme Person - (attained through the teaching of Guru)*. Doing so in this way, Bhishma and such have cast off life, meaning - performing Omkar Kriya in one breath twenty-thousand seven-hundred thirty-six times (20,736)* bursts the Brahmarandhra - doing so, one attains the Supreme Substance - which is attained through transmission by Guru.
