-----How is this related to traditional yoga of Patanjali[Ashtanga Yoga]?----Why is this K-Yoga special ,unlike Bhakti yoga, Raja yogaor Jnana Yoga? Why is it esoteric?----Why the secrecy surrounding this path?---Why some rishiis and many gurus preach against this path ordissuade one in pursuing this path? This is so in India and inthe west? Why is this labeled as a dangerous path by manysaints?----Is K Yoga bad for health, reducing one's life, by burningout?---- How K Yoga is related to Tibetan {Mahayana/Vajrayana]Buddhism?----Can Christians and others practice this?
