Third initiation of Babaji Kriya Yoga (BKY)
A yogi deals with approaching the Primordial, the Source. All activities are just means to get there.
The closer a person comes to That, the more he/she will experience That and become a part of That.
The closer you get to God, the more of his qualitative characteristics you have.
Your relationship with the Universal Teacher
For a better understanding of yoga, it is useful to look at the roots of yoga. Usually, people then think of India, but this is misleading. Yogis have always said: we have not invented yoga, it has been given to us. When trying to find out who then gave yoga, we always reach one and the same point – it came through insight, inspiration, and intuition… Yogis discovered that insight as a phenomenon occurs everywhere, and everyone has access to it, so they began to call this source a Universal Teacher. The initiation includes activities conducted by Acharya that allow you to get in touch with the Universal Teacher, forming a bridge between you and That.
An opportunity to follow the footsteps of Kriya Babaji
The techniques of the Kriya Yoga high-tech system will become clearer when we look at who Kriya Babaji was. He was not born as an avatar (see Wikipedia) but became that during his lifetime. This refers to certain practices as a result of which a state called soruba samadhi can be achieved. Some hints to this are provided by knowing who were his teachers and what he practiced. The two main teachers of Kriya Babaji were Siddhars Boganathar and Agastyar, who taught him the transformative techniques known in the Tamil 18 Siddha Tradition.
By achieving incredible results in the conventional sense with these practices, Babaji brought them together into a system known as Kriya Yoga. So, by passing through the initiation, you will acquire the same techniques that Babaji himself used.
What do you learn during this initiation?
Level III initiation of Babaji Kriya Yoga (BKY) is an intense week-long retreat during which we learn and practice advanced techniques that make up the last part of the perfect system of BKY. Level III techniques are associated with opening potentials and achieving self-realization, also containing three samadhi techniques. Practices are complemented by lectures on Kriya Yoga as a complete path of self-development and its ultimate goal, attainable through the grace of the Teacher.
After the initiation, it is possible to participate in the continuous education program. In Lilleoru, from autumn to spring, I regularly conduct monthly BKY level I – III satsangs. At these meetings, participants share the experiences they obtained from practicing, ask questions, and can clarify techniques with the Acharya.
“The purpose of yoga is to return to where you came from – to Shiva, to God, to these heights. But before you can go there, you have to go through the cleansing process and get rid of all that doesn’t belong to that sphere.”
