His three Gurus were stalwarts in this discipline. His other books English editions are also awaiting publication. He has authored quite a number of articles delineating the science hence rationality of Kriyayoga.
He has organised philanthropic activities through this Mission. To further Yogiraj consciousness he has travelled throughout India and in many places in the Orient and Occident.

A civic reception graced by luminaries from all walks of life was accorded to him on 10th June in Calcutta.
Foreword Purana Purusha is the Gita of Satyayuga. This is significant because of the loftiness of thought inherent in the book. But of course if we delve deep into it and make a studious effort to glean the latent meaning then surely we should be able to succeed.
Again the question may arise, how sure can we be of succeeding to comprehend the depth of thought inherent in it? This is possible only by the Grace of the Sadguru. Who is this Sadguru? Dear reader, I wish to impress upon you one Sadguru. His Grace is showered only if we are sincere and diligent in our efforts. Gita universally is regarded as a scripture. Vyasadeva was born in a black island i. Kutastha is Krishna. Therefore this infers that Vyasadeva is none other than the partial manifestation of Bhagavan Krishna.
When the Gita was composed i. But as we note today, it has attained a worldwide eminence. The incarnations avataras of God are not His full-fledged manifestations, but only partial. God makes His Advent only at the juncture of two yugas when humanity suffers a religious decadence. However, there may be an exception to this rule when according to His discretion, he may mark His Readvent within a short span.
He wholly manifests Himself in the Form of a Human Being to enable us mortals to come closer to Him, to enable, us divulge all our afflictions and joys to Him and also in order to impart His teachings to us. If He appears in any other Form, it would never be possible for us to be close to Him. Being born as a Mortal, he does not break His own rule i. He has to abide by the mortal afflictions, sorrows, etc.
Again during the last phase of Kaliyuga when almost every individual had deviated from the Sanatana path, God appeared as Sri Shama Churn Lahiree and revived this Sanatana Kriyayoga amongst the masses.
Now comes the crux of the matter. It has been stated that God arrives only at the juncture of two yugas when there is a religious decline. However, there may be an extremely rare exception to this rule.
In accordance to His discretion He may reappear. But why should this occur? That is because the occasion may necessitate His arrival. He had referred to this in a subtle innuendo?
As we go through the book, we will note that Shama Ghurn Lahiree had informed about His Departure to His wife Kashimani devi six months in advance and had asked her to retain His Mortal Frame in the padmasana posture or to place this under the ground of the same room after His Departure, for He would mark His Readvent.
Hence, the question is why did He decide to make His Readvent? The reasons are:- 1. To compile all His sadhana realizations recounted in His twenty-six confidential diaries in the form of a revived scripture. The mammoth significance of the scripture in this age was foreseen, for His principal aim was to re-establish His Own ideals and give declining Kriyayoga a push. The world has already entered into Satyayuga after His Departure, but the influence of Kaliyuga still persists.
He decided to usher humanity into the golden efflorescence of Satyayuga and depart. Thus from this point of time, the full-fledged Advent of God is certainly not necessary till the end of that era which lasts for about 50, years. To issue summons to mankind:- "Arise, awake, you have enjoyed enough, suffered enough, known enough.
The goal of your human existence should be solely one i. Drawn yourself totally in this Kriyayoga sadhana for if not in this birth, within the successive few births you will inevitably attain salvation" He advises us to be childlike. My Gurudeva has advised us to reorient our lives by constantly ruminating, contemplating, cogitating, communing, reminiscing and discussing on Yogiraj. In other worlds, we should make endeavours for our whole entity to be pervaded by Yogiraj, the Almighty.
This is him only message to mankind. Nothing pains my Gurudeva more than the non-practice of Kriya on our part, for his mission is to emancipate us.
He will be happy if his objective is fulfilled. No wealth, sycophancy, opulence and murmuring pleasantries will even appease him. Only the practice of Kriyayoga sadhana on our part can propitiate him.
Ashoke Kumar Chatterjee intended to be a biography. God is one, therefore it is imperative that religion also has to be one. This scripture is aimed at delineating the domestic life, life of sadhana, sadhana realizations and the ideals and precepts of Yogiraj Sri Shama Churn Lahiree. From this we can deduce that to enter the spiritual path we do not need to be a renunciate, we can simultaneously practice sadhana and maintain a domestic existence.
We hereby observe that Yogiraj has beautifully juxtaposed His family life alongwith His life of sadhana. Sanatana Kriyayoga has been revived by Yogiraj and is exclusively and absolutely based on science and rationality.
There is no scope of emotion here, I repeat, no emotion at all. Apparently to all of us, this seems to be the truth but have we made assays regarding this? Had anyone of us been assigned this task of compiling the biography of Yogiraj with the help of twenty-six diaries, would we have been able to accomplish this mammoth feat? Why we would never be able to accomplish this noble feat is simple.
Who else can write about the biography of Bhagavan Krishna-Shama Churn? Let us go back to where we began. Should not we weigh the magnitude of such a comparison? We must pause and contemplate thus; who else in this world can be the composer of this?
Need I say more? I leave it for the reader to ascertain. The ennobling experience of translating this scripture has chastened me, my life having attained a wholly new significance. I would prefer the reader to know that it is he only who has penned all my thoughts while translating the book. I am indebted to my Gurudeva who has showered his infinite grace on me for the marvelous realizations I have experienced while working on the translation.
These realizations have immensely assisted me in humbly assessing the subtle nuances of the scripture. Here I wish to note that apart from showering his infinite grace, he has been gracious and kind to be physically present from time to time finding time off from his domestic, official, epistolary routine, counseling devotees and practicing sadhana to guide me verbatim and with meticulous detail so that no fact or theory is distorted as it may prove harmful for the future generation.
It is indeed a misfortune that today due to religious groupism, sectarianism, unrest and bartering, the true Kriyayoga as has been revived by Yogiraj is on the verse of extinction. Whatever is being imparted under the guise of Kriyayoga from some corners is basically a sham. However, it can be vouched that this book will serve as a guide to the reader seeking Kriyayoga which has been revived by Yogiraj Himself. Yogiraj and Kriyayoga are inextricable. He is the embodiment of Kriyayoga.
Yogiraj and Kriyayoga are eternal. He is complementary to Kriyayoga. Kriyayoga is the science of the path by which a human being can gradually and steadily progress towards attaining oneness; merging with Yogiraj and becoming Yogiraj Himself. In other words the attainment of salvation exclusively and wholly infers Yogiraj. Since He is the Absolute, He has conferred an exalted position to Kriyabans ones initiated into Kriyayoga and practicing it by terming them as yogis and devatas.
Yogi is One, thus Yogi is Absolute Brahma. A Kriyaban or devata is an aspirant yogi in his path of sadhana. Devata infers one who dwells in void.
