Excerpt From the Book Voice of Babaji: A Trilogy on Kriya Yoga

This is an excerpt from “The Voice of Babaji: A Trilogy on Kriya Yoga”. This was first published in 1952 by V.T. Neelakantan, S.A.A. Ramaiah and Babaji Nagaraj. During 1952 and 1953, Babaji appeared nightly before his “beloved child” Sri V.T. Neelakantan, a mystic and respected journalist, at the latter’s home in Egmore, Madras, India. Babaji had a request for his disciples Neelakantan and his “other half ” Sri S.A.A. Ramaiah (Babaji’s “beloved son”). He wanted his teachings to be recorded, in order for a new phase to begin in the Kriya Yoga Movement. He said that with the publication of these books his Kriya Yoga would spread to the nooks and corners of this earth. Babaji dictated these three books to V.T. Neelakantan, who wrote them down verbatim. Their introductory chapters were written by S.A.A. Ramaiah under Babaji’s guidance. Three additional books were also promised by Babaji. Our research to date has not enabled us to find these additional promised volumes.
