Update February 10th 2016 please look at the website kriyayogainfo dot net and kriyainfo dot com there is a short period of time people will be able to receive Kriya yoga initiation in the United States and Europe from a live Kriya Yoga Master who comes from the lineage of Lahiri Mahasaya.

Yogiraj Sri Shama Churn Lahiri is the name of none other than the beloved Lahiri Mahasaya so many of us in the West were introduced to by Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi.

For anyone who is a practicing Kriyaban, Kriyavan or Kriyawit this is a true must have. I have not read the entire book yet as I am gaining new insight daily paragraph by paragraph.

To eat is not enough one must digest their meal to get any value from it.

I was expecting this book to denounce the stories of Lahiri Mahasaya as told in Autobiography of a Yogi but instead found they further supported them minus some of the more fantastic parts.

This book goes deeper into the life of Lahiri Mahasaya and his teaching. This book is not a casual read at all it is very deep and profound.

I hope to meet Dr. Ashoke Kumar Chatterjee one day. If you are reading this Dr. Thank you very much for making this available to the world.

I am extremely pleased to have this book and if I had to do it all over again I would purchase this without hesitation.

2013-02-08 Update As one who has been initiated into Kriya Yoga from two separate lines that descended from Yogiraj Shama Churn Lahiri I would like to report that it has been my extreme good fortune to receive written instruction on Kriya Practice from a student of the Author of this book.

This biography was very difficult to read. It was based on Lahiree's diaries. You would be shown a bold transcription of the original diary entry, then a translation of it into English along with what could be pages of commentary. The commentary and translation were not at all separated and it became quite tedious ploughing through the punditry of Purana Purusha which was translated again into English. Very awkward sentences and intense philosophizing detract from the subject: Lahiree's life work. There are precious few anecdotes showing the life of Lahiree considering the 378 pages. There is a definite spiritual vibe in reading the book, but it was much more of a chore than a pleasure.

Yogiraj Lahiri Mahasayaji was the harbinger of this age of the science of Kriya Yoga for the sole purpose of elevating man to his divine stature. Dr. Chatterjee has done an incredible job of sharing the great Yogiraj's revelations and high states of consciousness, giving us a glimpse of what we all can attain through the divine guidance, wisdom, and love of such a one sent by God to help mankind out of the vicious cycle of human birth and death.

...then you'll love this book. It's not an easy read, for sure, but it more than makes up for that by offering its readers a very deep look into the life and teachings of Lahiri Mahasaya, the great Indian Master of the sciences of kriya yoga and self-realization.

The only book written About God by God Himself. I am glad to have a very close association with the Author. He lives on what he teaches and i have never brought or read such a great book. It takes time to understand the inner subtle energies that drive the human race. And this book is the window of what it is and how to get it. Kriya is Truth every other thing is Untrue. And this is real.
Hope you buy this book and understand what it really speaks of..
