Q: Gurudev, When there was Kriya Yoga* already, what was the reason to introduce Sudarshan Kriya? Do both kriyas lead the follower to the same destination? (*An ancient Yoga system (revived in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya) consisting of a number of levels of Pranayama based on techniques that are intended to rapidly accelerate spiritual development and engender a profound state of tranquility.)

I don’t know why another kriya has come. But I know that it is good that it has come because it has helped many more lives than what the Kriya Yoga has touched. This much I know. On the other hand, we have no right to comment on other techniques. It was very useful at that time for those people. Today, this is very useful.
Maybe, today also, for some people Kriya Yoga might be working. And we know for sure that Sudarshan Kriya is working for many more people. So, we acknowledge that and we celebrate this!
