An Excerpt from the book “KRIYA YOGA” Chapter II ' THE ()!C*E+!+ % H)-+ E/%0)T!%+ The world is no longer the huge place it was once thought to be. 1istance has beenincredibly reduced by rapid means o transport and communication. reat scientiicinventions have liberated us rom servitude to nature and have quickened worldevolution. $cience has relieved us o grinding poverty and physical pain.%n the other hand, humanity today aces the challenge o destiny. We are in the midst o the greatest crisis o history. The human predicament is due to the lack o ad2ustment o the human spirit to the startling developments in science and technology. $cience hasincreasingly put more and more power in the hands o human beings and with that power ithas already turned the world into a house ull o e&plosives. $o man lives a scorchedlie, rantically searching or meaning and security. The solution lies in a moral andspiritual revolution embracing the whole world.  *riya 3oga is the most eective medium to bring about this change. !t is a practicalphilosophy suitable or every person o the modern world. !t oers guidance and helpto a generation that is perple&ed at its ailure to ind satisaction and is groping or light. The general evolution has been quickened through scientiic method. This cansimilarly be applied to all other spheres o lie, including the inner lie.!n his classic book, The Origin of Species, Charles 1arwin demonstrates that lie on this planet has evolved by a gradual process. Evolution is a continuous process rom theearliest orms o living organisms to the latest product4 human beings.

We have used this power to overcome obstacles and to modiy theworld in which we live in such a way as to 2ustiy the claim to be the supreme creation o theevolutionary process. ll great scientiic achievements are the works o the living spirit o humanity. While our bodies are limited in space and time, our spirit is eternal. The Opportunity  Human birth is a rare opportunity. !t can be utilized to realize the immortal spirit andthereby transcend the limitations o time and space. 0ie implies evolution 5 a steadyonward progress, a steady ascent into higher and higher states o progressiveperection. Thereore, it means an upward movement, a ceaseless quest or perection. 6ulianHu&ley, in the conclusion o his book Evolution: A Modern Synthesis, says, 7True humanprogress consists o increase o aesthetic, intellectual and spiritual e&periences andsatisaction.7He points out that the uture o progressive evolution is the uture o humanity. The utureo humanity, i it is to progress and not remain at a standstill, must be guided with adeliberate purpose.We must realize the precious nature o human e&istence. We have to realize thewonderul signiicance o this body as an instrument or spiritual practice and as a greatguide towards the ultimate goal. -an grows through countless lives into divine $el'e&istence. Every lie, every act, is a step that we may take either backward or orward.%ne8s thought, will, and action deterrmine what one is likely to be. 1r. 9adhakrishnansays, 7%ur eet are set on the path o higher lie, though they wander uncertainly andthe path is not seen clearly.7reedom rom birth and realization o the divine state is the dream o all religions. !t isthe moksha o the Hindu, the nirvana o the #uddhist, and the *ingdom o Heaven o theChristian. 9ealization o cosmic consciousness is the goal o lie. !n the language o religion, $pirit is od, the ultimate reality which is one and all'comprehensive. Cosmicconsciousness, $pirit, od, the bsolute, and the $el all are one and the same.The realization o the $el is the only summum bonum :the be'all and end'all; o lieand in this alone does lie ind its ulillment.We are all living sparks o the 1ivinity. The one who dives deepest into his $el notonly realizes his identity with the Cosmic $pirit, but tastes the sweetness o ininite 2oy. !n the rush and clamor o our conscious lie, we do not pay attention to themystery o our being.The $el is the source o all 2oy. !t is the dearest thing to humanity. 0ie is dear because there is 2oy in living it. %ne loves another person or thing because he identiieshis own $el with that person or thing. To eel oneness with the $el is to become onewith the !ninite od. To strive toward that end is our birthright. *riya 3oga can leadus to that end.$oul is the microcosmic image o $pirit. s such, the soul irst maniests thevibrations o super'consciousness, which turn into lie energy. This lie energy, in turn,vibrates through the gross human body. -ind e&ists, matter e&ists. #oth are vibrationso spirit. !nvisible mind vibrating as lie energy is converted into gross matter. -atter does not e&ist as it appears to us. !t is merely the vibration o energy, which is
