YouTube’s algorithms brought this little gem to my attention. It actually does a decent job of conveying who Babaji is, and what he taught, all in under ten minutes.
What struck me about the video, though, is that at about 7:20 in there is a visual effect that very closely approximates what I see during Kriya Yoga meditation. I suspect that the similarity is merely coincidental, but still, it took my breath when it appeared on the screen
I first noticed these clouds of light converging in the center of my field of vision occasionally in late 2019 during TM style silent mantra meditation. I learned later, as I began to practice Kriya Yoga, that the phenomenon sometimes accompanies the opening of the Spiritual Eye as one enters the superconscious (or transcendental) state. This occurrence has become more commonplace during Kriya Pranayama over the past few months, after having practiced the technique for a couple of years now.
For more information on Mahavatar Babaji’s legacy, and the practices of his Kriya Yoga lineage, I would highly recommend the Kriya Yoga Online YouTube channel of my teacher, Ryan Kurczak.
