Contemporary Kriya Writings

 
"Via the lotus-stem-thread of the mouth, relinquish breath - meaning: make it Still; in this way - via the sushumna path, it becomes Still like this spontaneously. This is the indication of 'kumbhak' - meaning: vayu moves in Stillness via the sushumna; that is the state of kumbhak."
~ Lahiri Baba from Amritabindu 13
"Sreshtha uttamanga [the greatest and principal part of the body] (mouth)* brahmin" - when there is samadhi; the abode of all happiness is "swarga" [heaven]; when one performs Kriya, one is a "brahmin"; from that Mouth - Lord (Purushottama).**

~ Lahiri Baba from Manu 1:93

Commentary on Selected Verses In Light of Kriya Yoga by bala

The Yoni Tantra is a sacred and secret scripture for initiates of the Tantra tradition. Yoga Niketan is pleased to present a fresh translation of key verses and a short commentary upon them in the light of Kriya Yoga, by an authentic representative of the sublime system taught by the revered Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri Mahasaya. Sitting at the feet of our silent and secretive Guru, the successor to Sri Sailendra Bejoy Dasgupta (eminent direct disciple of Swami Maharaj Sri Yukteshvar Giriji of Serampore) we were able to listen to and record the sacred commentary made of the Yoni Tantra, in the hidden light of Kriya Yoga. The priceless wisdom contained herein cannot be measured.
This book is not intended for the general public and was recorded and intended for the Guru-initiated Kriyavans. We offer this commentary to the feet of our paramguru Sri Sailendra Bejoy Dasgupta ("Dadu") as a quiet offering to his holy feet.
The translation of the Yoni Tantra verses into English was done by the Yoga Niketan Team and is copyright of Yoga Niketan and cannot be reproduced without permission of Yoga Niketan. Yoni Tantra is a sacred and secret scripture for initiates of that tradition. We had agreed to friends of that tradition (who worked with us on the translation) to protect it from unauthorized proliferation.
