There is an air of secrecy around kriya yoga and its practice. While all teachers/gurus tell that kriya yoga is clearly outlined in the Gita - then what is the point of secrecy ?

  • Kriya is outlined Gita offering Prana to Apana and Apana to Prana but the method to do that is secret because this is Guru-disciple Diksha... Everything has its own Dharma, process, – Parabrahman Jyoti Dec 12 '18 at 3:37
  • Techniques of Kriya are not secret. It is imparted – Parabrahman Jyoti Dec 12 '18 at 3:48
  • clearly outlined?? No one practices Kriya Yoga by seeing texts like BG. It is a philosophical text and not a practitioner's guideline. And even in general, advanced Yoga techniques are to be learned only from the Guru.. Scriptures intentionally will give vague descriptions. – Rickross Dec 12 '18 at 6:25
  • It is not that they are secret, they are sacred. They are imparted to a person when they are ready to receive them. – Swami Vishwananda Dec 12 '18 at 9:28
