A Kriya is that action that unleashes the universal power of action, also known as kriyashakti. In the philosophy of yoga, kriya yoga is the first step towards achieving this goal. The unlimited cosmic energy, Kundalini, which represents our expanded potential, is blocked due to the absence of kriyashakti, the universal power of action.
The awakening of this power is the first step towards liberation and the realization of our full potential.
Pranayama refers to the control of prana, the energy, the life force that gives all things their being.
