Importance of Kriya Yoga
Everyone tries to live a happy life with peace and bliss, and for that, with all your efforts to achieve prosperity, development, happiness, and peace, you end up in misery and are ever unsatisfied. You are unhappy either due to poverty, physical illness, or mental stress and are forced to look into the society with negative characteristics. Even in the societies where exists a material saturation, the members of the societies are not satisfied.
Even with all the perfections in science and technology and with the exaltations in philosophical knowledge, you fail to satisfy your inner need because you do not have mastery on your life. You need to have mastery over your mind. You need to sublimate your ego by the practice of meditation with proper devotion. You need to overcome your cravings and aversions.
In the present-day world, you all have become slaves to your mind. Whatever you do, you do simply because of being swayed away by your emotions, influenced by your thoughts and desires, or being attracted by allurements. You do not follow your discriminating intellect. But this should not be like this. You have to be the master of your mind.
