With heartfelt praise Yogacharya Sidheswar Sahu told spiritual seekers that Kriya Yoga saved him from "the jaws of death on at least two occasions" and as a result of the many spiritual experiences that had come to him since practicing Kriya, he proclaims with confidence that: "Kriya Yoga is the panacea of all human troubles."
