克里亚瑜伽——一种强大的修行方式
发布日期:2017-04-08 15:39

Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru, looks at what kriya yoga means, and what it takes to walk this path and explore the very mechanics of the life process.

这篇博文中,瑜伽士&神秘家萨古鲁探讨了克里亚瑜伽的意义,走克里亚瑜伽之路,探索生命过程的机制所需的条件。

 

Sadhguru: Fundamentally, kriya means internal action. When you do inner action, it does not involve the body and the mind because both the body and the mind are still external to you. When you have a certain mastery to do action with your energy, then it is a kriya.

萨古鲁:本质上,克里亚的意思是内在的行动。当你在内在做出行动时,不会涉及到身体和头脑,因为身体和头脑仍在你的外在。当你能够掌控你的能量的运作时,那就是克里亚了。

 

If you do external activity we call it karma. If you do internal activity we call it kriya. In a way, both are certain kind of karmas or both are certain kind of kriyas. But traditionally, or in the general sense of the term it is understood like this: karmas are those which bind you, kriyas are those which release you.

你从外在做出的活动,我们称之为业力。你从内在做出的活动,我们称之为克里亚。从某种角度讲,二者都是某种业力,或者说二者都是某种克里亚。但是,传统上,或者大体上,人们是这样理解的:业力是束缚,克里亚是释放。

 

Once we start working with the energy in a certain way, it has a different kind of depth to life

我们一旦开始以某种方式让能量运作起来,生命就会有一个不一样的深度。

 

Whatever we do with your body, your attitudes and your thought, for example today your thoughts may go in one direction. Tomorrow if another person comes and influences you, they will go another way. Similarly, whatever we do with your body, your body is well today so it likes asanas. Tomorrow morning if your body is stiff, you will hate asanas. Your emotions are not at all reliable. At any moment they can shift from this to that. But your energies are different. Once we start working with the energy in a certain way, it has a different kind of depth to life. Suddenly, there is a different dimension to every aspect of your life because your energies have been touched and activated in a completely different way.

不管你对你的身体、态度、念头做什么,比如说今天你的念头是往这个方向,明天如果另一个人来影响了你,你的念头又会往另一个方向去了。同样的,不管你对你的身体做什么,身体今天状态很好,所以它喜欢做体式;明早,如果身体很僵硬,你就会讨厌做体式。你的情感就一点儿也不可靠了。情感随时都会转变。但是你的能量就不一样。我们一旦开始以某种方式让能量运作起来,生命就会有一个不一样的深度。突然之间,你生命的每个面向就会有一个不一样的维度,因为你已经以一种不一样的方式触及并激活了你的能量。

 

A powerful way 

一种强大的方式

Kriya yoga is a very powerful way to walk the spiritual path, but at the same time it is a very demanding way. What it demands out of a person is so tremendous. For a modern educated person today, kriya yoga would be inhuman because it needs that kind of discipline and a certain exactness about everything. Most people don’t have the body, the mind or the stability of emotion for the kriya yoga path anymore because right from childhood, people are in too much comfort. Comfort does not mean physical comfort. Sitting in a comfortable chair is not an obstruction. But your whole being is seeking comfort always, that is a great obstruction. If you are sitting on something which is comfortable, enjoy it – there is no problem about it. But if you are constantly seeking comfort, then that kind of mind and emotion is unsuitable for the path of kriya yoga. Kriya yoga cannot be done with people who are loose, people who talk “freedom” everywhere, “Am I not free to do this, am I not free to do that, can’t I eat this, can’t I sleep there?”

克里亚瑜伽是一种强大的修行方式,但同时也是一条非常严苛的道路。这条道路要求一个人付出很多。对于一个受过现代教育的人来说,克里亚瑜伽可能是不人道的,因为它对每件事都需要一种自制力和精确性。多数人都不再具备修习克里亚瑜伽所需的那种身体、头脑和情感的稳定性,因为人们从童年时期就生活在极大的舒适安逸之中。舒适并不是指物质身的舒适。坐在一张舒服的椅子上,不会阻碍你修习克里亚瑜伽。但是你整个的存在都总是在寻求舒适,那就是个巨大的障碍。如果你坐在舒服的地方,并享受这种舒适——那没问题。但是如果你不停地寻求舒适,那么这样的头脑和情感就不合适走克里亚瑜伽的道路。克里亚瑜伽不适合那些松散的人,那些走到哪里都在谈论“自由”的人,“我没空做这个,我没时间做那个,我不能吃这个吗,我不能睡在那里吗?”

 

If you take someone into the path of kriya, if I tell you sleep with your legs up and head down, that is how you should sleep without asking questions because all of it can never be explained. You may understand as you go, but it can never be explained. And if it has to be explained, the essence of the kriya will be lost. If people start asking stupid logical questions for everything, kriyas cannot be imparted.

如果你让某个人走克里亚的修行之路,如果我让你脚朝天头顶地地睡觉,你就应该这样睡觉,不要多问什么,因为克里亚是无从解释的。在你进行的过程中你也许会明白,但是你从来不能用语言来解释。如果一定要解释的话,你解释不出来克里亚的精髓本质。如果人们开始对一切都要用逻辑来问一些愚蠢的问题的话,克里亚是无法被传授的。

 

If we want to teach you kriyas just as a physical practice, I can write a book about it, and you can read and learn it. But if you want the kriya to be a live process, if we want the kriya to be imprinted into your system in a certain way, then it needs discipline and dedication. It needs trust to open up your energies to the other person so that you become absolutely vulnerable. He may do anything with you, and initially you will start wondering what the hell he is doing with you because the initial stages of kriyas can be such that you don’t know whether you are getting enlightened or you are going mad. You must have enough trust to sustain through those periods. Otherwise kriya will be difficult.

如果我们想把克里亚只是作为身体锻炼来教给你,那么我可以写一本那样的书,你可以看了书之后学习克里亚。但是如果你想让克里亚成为一个充满生命活力的过程的话,如果想让克里亚以某种方式进入你的系统,那么就需要自制力和奉献之心。它需要信任来让你向其他人打开你的能量,这样你就会变得极度脆弱。那个人也许会对你做任何事,开始的时候你会想,他到底在对你做些什么,因为克里亚的开启阶段就是这样,你不知道你是会开悟还是会发疯。你必须要有足够的信任来让自己坚持走完各个阶段。否则的话,克里亚就会非常困难。

 

So generally on the path of kriya, most Gurus make the disciples wait. You come and you want to learn kriya yoga. “Okay, sweep the floor.” “No, I want to learn kriya yoga.” “That is why I said, sweep the floor.” You swept the floor for one year and said, “I did one year of sweeping.” “Oh, you are done with one year of sweeping the floor? Wash the dishes.” Just make him wait, wait, and wait. Use him, misuse him, abuse him, and still his trust does not shake, “Oh, there must be some reason.” When he comes to this, then he can be initiated into kriyas. Otherwise, once you power him in a particular way that his system is vibrant beyond normal standards, if his attitudes and emotions are not proper, he will cause immense damage to himself.

所以,一般情况下,走克里亚的道路,多数上师都会让弟子等待。你来找上师,想学克里亚瑜伽。上师会说,“好的,去扫地吧。”“不,我想学的是克里亚瑜伽。”“所以我说,去扫地。”你扫了一年的地,然后说,“我扫了一年了。”“啊,你已经扫了一年了吗?那去洗盘子吧。”上师只是让他等待,等待,再等待。使用他,虐待他,骂他,而他对上师的信任仍未动摇。他心想,“上师让我做这些,一定有他的用意。”当他到达了这个程度,他就能被开启进入克里亚的修行。否则的话,一旦你用特定的方式推动他快速前进,他的系统的振动会超过正常标准,如果他的态度和情感不正确的话,他就会给自己造成巨大的伤害。

 

But in today’s world, to get that kind of time with people to make them wait and go through all this and when they come to that kind of trust, then imprinting this is a little remote. It is not impossible, but it is a little remote in the modern world.

但是今天这个世界,要让人们付出那样的时间,让他们等待,去经历所有这一切,让他们到达那样一种信任,然后才传授,那有点遥远。倒不是不可能,但是在现代社会,那有点遥远。

 

The mechanics of life

生命机制

Kriya yoga is important only if you want to do things beyond realization. If your interest is only to somehow escape this prison and get away, you just want enlightenment or mukti, then you don’t really have to walk the kriya yoga path because kriyas are so elaborate and involve so much discipline and focus. If you just want to be liberated, then kriyas can be used in a small way, it need not be too intense. Kriya as a whole path is not necessary because it needs too much application.

只有当你想要做些超越开悟的事时,克里亚瑜伽才显得重要。如果你的兴趣只是想要逃避现实,只是想要开悟,或者自由解脱(mukti),那么你并不需要走克里亚瑜伽的道路,因为克里亚非常的精细,要求你有极高的自制力和专注力。如果你想要解脱,那就小用了克里亚,只是要解脱的话不需要如此的高度的投入。不需要把克里亚作为一个完整的道路,因为克里亚需要很多的实际运用。

With the path of kriya you are not only seeking realization, you also want to know the mechanics of life-making

修行克里亚,你不仅是在寻求开悟,你也想要领悟生命的构成机制。

If you follow the path of kriya very intensely, without guidance it may take a few lifetimes to mature. If there is someone alive who can do things with you, then it can happen in this life. Otherwise kriya is a little roundabout way. With the path of kriya you are not only seeking realization, you also want to know the mechanics of life-making. You want to know the engineering of how life is built – what to do about it. That is why it is a much longer process.

如果你激烈地修行克里亚,没有指导的话,也许要花几世的时间才能成熟。如果有一个能为你做些事情的活着的人指导你的话,那么在这一世就可能成功。否则的话,克里亚就是一条迂回曲折的路。修行克里亚,你不仅是在寻求开悟,你也想要领悟生命的构成机制。你想要知道这个生命是如何构建的——要如何使用它。这就是为什么克里亚是个更加漫长的过程。

 

People who have come up on kriya have a completely different kind of presence about them because of the mastery over their energies. They can dismantle life and put it back together. But if you are just pursuing other ways, like gnana for example, you are razor-sharp, you can do many things with your mind but still there is nothing much you can do with your energy. If you are on bhakti, there is nothing you can do and you don’t care, you only want to dissolve. If you are on the path of karma yoga, you do many things in the world, but you can do nothing with yourself. But kriya yogis can do whatever they wish with themselves in terms of energy and they can do a lot with the world also.

那些走克里亚道路的人,他们出现的时候有一种完全不同的气质,因为他们掌控了自己的能量。他们能够把生命消解,然后恢复原位。但是如果你只是在追寻其他的道路,例如吉那那瑜伽(即智慧瑜伽),你的头脑如刀刃般锋利,你能用你的头脑做很多事,但是你不能用你的能量做多少事。如果你走业力瑜伽的道路,你能在这个世界做很多事,但是用你自己你什么也不能做。但是克里亚瑜伽能让人们在能量方面做任何他们想要做的事,同时也能在这个现实世界做很多事。
