Some consider Kriya Yoga to be an esoteric and isolated practice. The very fruit of Carl Schmidt's first on-line Kriya Yoga Class, "A Recipe for Bliss" is brilliant in both detailed instruction and pure delivery streaming from a conscientious, warm, gentle, kind and loving heart. Historically, Babaji, the ageless saint dwelling in the remote regions of the Himalayas, revived it by passing Kriya on through a lineage of individuals that includes Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and many others. The book is clear and precise as well as straight forward and honest.

i have only love and admiration for "Carl Schmidt".

Some consider Kriya Yoga to be an esoteric and isolated practice. Historically, Babaji, the ageless saint dwelling in the remote regions of the Himalayas, revived it by passing Kriya on through a lineage of individuals that includes Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and many others. However, for Kriya Yoga to impact this world, it has to take form and practice within you. It is not meant to remain dormant in esoteric and cult-like enclaves. It is not separate from "normal life." A Recipe for Bliss bridges the esoteric and the everyday. It describes how to enter the place that has no inside and no outside, without the urge to maintain a separate relative presence. A Recipe for Bliss is a blueprint to draw the Primordial Cosmic Vibration of the Holy Sound, Om, into your everyday awareness. From there you may enter a joyous life experience without ego and beyond dimensions to merge with the Whole Being God Is. A Recipe for Bliss can open the doors of your perception to a new and authentic way to experience your True Self.

The very fruit of Carl Schmidt's first on-line Kriya Yoga Class, "A Recipe for Bliss" is brilliant in both detailed instruction and pure delivery streaming from a conscientious, warm, gentle, kind and loving heart. The book is clear and precise as well as straight forward and honest. Through the practice of Kriya Yoga techniques as presented via this special teacher, Carl Schmidt, our interior, personal make-up surfaces and It becomes painfully evident that most of us are caught up in the world of illusion or maya. Carl brings to light a direct and true approach to finding bliss or "the peace that passeth understanding" with clarity and timeless expertise which allows the student a means to expand their consciousness and fulfill the bottom line which is to "be in this world but not of it." Additionally, Carl makes available, to any and everyone with enough committment to follow the practice of Kriya Yoga, a rare opportunity to discover and practice living in bliss. This opens a new way of being, one we are all struggling to find, which blossoms and flowers as we apply the teachings. Learning these practices or techniques has made living a very different Journey, one in which I can be consciously aware of my purpose here and now. I feel truly blessed to have been part of this instruction and am so grateful for Carl's willingness to share and open the pathway of Kriya Yoga . I would and do recommend this as a book to travel and grow with. "A Recipe for Bliss" will always be on my bedside table for easy and ready accessibility. Kindests Regards, Sylvia

This book and Carl's online class are the only sources I have found that actually provide step-by-step techniques for Kriya Yoga meditation without the guru initiation process. In this book this is given in one chapter toward the end. The rest of the book consists of supporting background, insights, and reflections on Kriya Yoga and life in general.

Carl Schmidt shares his insight without all the secrecy attached. It's best to read it through once and go back to it as its truth unfolds.

Sadly I found this useless. Did not read past halfway. I already experience bliss, so I expected the author could share something I could relate to. He did not in the first half of the book.

"A Recipe for Bliss" by Carl Schmidt is filled with the author's experiences in spirituality. It revels his spiritual achievements with emphasis on Zen Buddhism, Kriya Yoga and the Hong-Sau technique of meditation.

This book contains timeless wisdom which shows the reader that the main purpose of life is to seek God and give love to all unconditionally. It inspires the reader to persevere in his/her meditation and NOT to lose hope in life. People suffering from depression will find this book filled with joy and endless love, and this writings will give them new hope and understanding.

Lastly I would NOT recommend this book to souls who would not appreciate spiritual Truths. The saying "Do not cast pearls to swines" holds true in the spiritual path. Those readers who gave a low rating for this book had failed to appreciate its timeless Truths of wisdom. Carl Schmidt's writings are filled with pure love and sincere honesty throughout the pages and it is quite painful to read the unwanted negative reviews!

A RECIPE FOR BLISS is just that. It is a set of simple yet effective techniques. That is not all that is required on your journey, however. Each individual needs to evaluate and come to an understanding of his own on their path through introspection so that they can obtain the goal of ego dissolution and union with God. I am surprised to see that there were a couple of low ratings for this book and it does beg the question what their true motivations were. Carl Schmidt does not claim that there is one way, in fact, he states in his writings that there are several paths up the mountain, but once the top is reached, the view is the same. He provides a technique for one of those roads and lets the aspirant test drive it. He kindly avails himself to seekers by offering a free class on the hOMe Foundation website. As with any technique, it is up to the individual to do the work and this is probably the key ingredient, not technique per se. This book is definitely worth reading and the classes are definitely worth taking if you are searching for a way to connect to your origins. Thank you for sharing your gift Carl.

There are really no "cookbooks" for Yoga, but this is a wonderful companion for those learning to prepare that most delicious of nourishments with or without skilled help. Strictly speaking Kriya Yoga is not found among the classical yoga systems. The four components of the fundamental Mahayoga are Hathayoga, Mantrayoga, Layayoga and Rajayoga. The tantras list twelve subsystems, none of which is named Kriyayoga. "Kriya" simply means "technique" and refers to any controlled action of mind and/or body. The beautiful kriyas taught by Paramahansa Yogananda are classified as Layayoga kriyas in the principal traditions. But variances like this are found throughout the universe of yoga and have no bearing on the holy science itself. Any sincere seeker will find Carl Schmidt's "Recipe For Bliss" immensely helpful. It brings together precious insights from Zen Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta and Kabbala in addition to its core subject matter. With them the goal of Laya - dissolving and merging into God - is within the reach of all.
