Daulat: Our Guru has initiated us and taught us chiddkasha dhäranä (concentration on chiddakasha). We concentrate our minds on the tip of the nose, and take our meditation from the ajña chakra to the sahasrara. From there, we take the meditation through the sushumna to the muladhara, passing through the anahata, manipura, and other chakras on the way. We also call this practice kriya yoga.
Baba: Initiation is a divine act by which the disciple’s deficiencies and imperfections are removed, and he is taken to perfec-tion. Imperfection means ignorance, or limitation. Perfection means Godhood, or knowledge. Just as a patient’s blood is auto-matically purified when the doctor administers an injection, simi-larly, the Guru makes the shakti flow through the disciple, initiating a spontaneous process of purification. The body contracts disease through indiscriminate conduct and regains health through proper conduct. An impure disciple becomes pure by the touch of the Guru. True kriya yoga is that in which kriyas take place spontaneously without any special effort.
