1. In India and its yogas, Kriya is most known as the tradition related to Paramahamsa Yogananda, which is a teaching consisting of meditation and pranayama (the "bellow" system).

2. In the Tibetan tradition, there is also a school of Yoga called Kriya, but it has little relationship to the Indian versions. In this case Kriya Yoga is the entry level to the higher forms of Tantra, and is called Action Tantra.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
