‘Mahayoga’ or Maha-kriya Yoga is an ancient tradition of yoga practice in Nepal, which has
been lost since the long time. It is the root of all yoga approaches that are in practice today. The
timeless Knowledge of Veda, and Upanishads has stated about this yoga in various places, in
both theoretical and practical manner. Being the root of all yoga it is literally termed as

rather doing. The true form of yoga is effortless, one will be witness of all his belongings

the 3 major aspects of mankind to yoke consciousness to super consciousness. The material
aspect with righteous living, physical health and well-being; the psychic aspect with purity,
satisfaction and peace through psychological health and well-being; the para-psychic or non-
material aspect with self-realization and enlightenment. Mahayoga, as it is thought that it
requires no any effort from practitioners, no asanas, and no kriyas. This is partial truth, in fact

kriyas. These kriyas are classified as Purva kriyas and Paschim kriyas, these makes this yoga
