Subject: Kriya at Ananda

Apparently the teachers at Ananda claim to teach kechari mudra, but from what I read it doesn't appear that Paramahansaji gave explicit instructions to Kriyananda regarding technique (when Kriyananda asked Yoganandaji if he should practice kechari the Master said something to the effect: 'not now...in the future.') I recall reading this from one of Kriyananda's writings. Also, is nabhi kriya taught at Ananda? I had read a post on the SRF Walrus site sometime ago by an Ananda member that seemed to indicate that this was the case. However, from what I have read it doesn't appear that Swami Sri Yukteswarji himself taught nabhi kriya. Of course Yoganandaji might have learned this technique elsewhere since he also received Kriya from his father and Shastri Mahasaya (Swami Kebelananda) and later passed it down to Kriyananda but this seems somewhat unlikely. I have had the sneaking suspicion that Kriyananda might have picked up some of these things (kechari, nabhi kriya, etc) during his later visits to India and is now using them as a way of trying to make himself and Ananda appear more legitimate than SRF. I hope that my information, suspicions are wrong and this is not the case.
