Kriya yoga is in itself a means. It is designed to illuminate and flood the understanding of the practitioner so that you remove all misconceptions, clean the mind and re-identify yourself with the deeper nature. This re-identification can only come through overwhelming personal experience. This is sometimes called anugraha (grace). It can arise through kriya yoga. Once one has confronted one's swabhava real nature) then kriya yoga has served its purpose. One will henceforth fix one's mind automatically on Shiva consciousness. One will spontaneously identify oneself with one's real nature, through bad and good circumstances of life. One's whole life becomes full with this re-identification. One's life becomes a source and generator of bliss and wisdom. Kriya yoga is a step on this path.
