He explains that the three basic practices of Kriya Yoga--tapas, svadhyaya and ishwara pranidhana (self-discipline, self-study and surrender of the ego)--should be practiced by all students of Yoga meditation, and that they are practiced in order to create a balanced mind and to establish a state of inner tranquility.

He further states that Kriya Yoga helps remove the obstacles that hinder our progress in meditation and by removing these obstacles we can obtain a state of samadhi.
