What is Karam Kriya?
A unique approach to negotiating change; working with universal intelligences, known to us as numbers, to provide a personal, professional and spiritual health check.
Karam = Structures that take us through time but with no result other than repetition.
Kriya = Completion of these structures and the establishment of Dharmic structures. Dharmic structures are vehicles of awareness that use time to go beyond time.
Knowing the nature of time and the tension that it brings in our life we can become its master.
Karam Kriya is not a modern concept it is an ancient one. Traditionally it referred to a ritual performed after cremation and involving the ashes of the deceased person as well as the presence of those relatives and friends who served as a witness of the final passage of the soul through this earthly plane. It implied a conscious action with the intention of affirming and sealing the sacrifice of that person´s life and delivering it to the Divine Will. It was regarded as the ultimate and final rite of passage towards freedom both by Hindus and Sikhs alike.
The contemporary approach to Karam Kriya is an organic and ever young approach to finding creative ways to utilise the passing time in order to create opportunities and to expand our possibilities of unlocking our full potential, giving birth to the individualised soul while here in the precious jewel of human life and in the mediums of time and space given for this purpose. It is the ongoing practice of re-negotiating the ways we shape our physical and psychic space towards the above-mentioned purpose. This negotiation always takes place in relation to other human beings.
Working with the individual or the group, Karam Kriya negotiates change that facilitates the journey of the soul in delivering itself, transmitting a call to consciousness and inviting the awareness of opportunity, choice and possibility. Maximising the given law of cause and effect to exhaust karma and give life to dharma. Realising the sound that created us and becoming that in all we do.
Karam Kriya is inspired by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and developed by Shiv Charan Singh. It is a completing activity that uses Applied Numerology to provide interactive diagnostic tools for transformation. One´s date of birth provides a window into one´s life patterns, which are also one´s karma. Karam Kriya is a scientific approach to understanding the influence of the law of karma in one´s life and through this learning rendering one´s history transparent.
Karam Kriya is explicit regarding the spiritual dimension to our existence and refers openly to the unknown God of all gods. It is for those who finished travelling away from their essential nature and are ready to turn around and begin the journey home.
Guided by the above mentioned principles the Karam Kriya School invites all its participants to move towards freedom and the responsibility and commitment that go with it. The School assumes that one is motivated to learn how to lead oneself rather than be lead and that one assumes responsibility for all the consequences that one experiences from being present and participating in its training programs. One is also encouraged to free others of this responsibility.
