It is very readable as the writing has considerably improved and he has also become quite good in presenting his ideas in an easy accessible way. The style or energy of this book is very uplifting but also very mature, meaning it is about a self facilitated approach to spiritual growth and not believing some authority figure. As with real spiritual growth one has to go ones own way in a balanced as possilbe way and this book makes that quite clear. It also gives advices on how to do that more easily. But for this book to work fully it anticipates from the reader a certain level of maturity or one could have problems with that approach. It delivers no quick fix but shows guidelines on how to go the long pathless path.
He also describes in detail all 4 Levels of Kriya techniques that belong to the authors lineage as well as techniques for contemplation, yogic sleep and inquiry.
I think that a lot of people could benefit from this book especially serious Kriya studends and spiritual seekers.
The reason i give only four and a half stars is that i have different views/experiences on certain topics and so some conclusions the author gives do not resonate with me at all.
Beside that this book is one of the very good books about that topic. A great mix of technique, shared experiences and a good dose of wise guidelines!
P. S.: I suggest to also buy (and do) "the presence process" from Michael Brown, which is one of the most powerful tools we have to come to real human maturity.
So much of modern spirituality and Self-study is superfluous, loaded, and without any kind of sturdy foundation to build upon. Not so here, my friend.
Kriya Yoga Vichara outlines and explains a realistic view on what it takes to practice, study, and endure what it is we call the spiritual path. Which is largely absent from most books discussing Kriya Yoga. The author also provides the tools in which to forge our own path. The only Path.
Ryan Kurczak does a great service for those who have what it takes to seek out the true depths of Self-realization, and does a great honor to his teachers by carrying on the true aspects of these teachings.
