Title: Kriya Yoga

It is so difficult to get out of the exterior and into the internal in meditation unless you have something like Kyria that Withdrawls the energy from the external sensory perceptions to be used to awaken internal perceptions.

This is true.  & this is the reason for the path of Kriya, from what I understand.

I think the Sutras of Patanjali explain this well & I think Babaji & Lahiri Mahasaya revived this practice in the mid 19th c. which was then made more popular worldwide by Yogananda via his book Autobiography of a Yogi.

Does this sound accurate?  Please reply with corrections if I mistaken on the history.

Clearly there are many different lineages now, debatable which ones have true Realized Masters, but perhaps they all are effective somewhat equally, as there are many different paths up the mountain...

Masters are beyond 'paths' and any sectarianism. If a Master becomes publicly known as teaching a certain  'path', it is the borgs (uneducated) creating dogmas around the Master and making a religion out of it. This is the reflective mirror of the state of human affairs since we forgot when it first happened.

'Paths' are layed out for humans to be followed. Yoga, as in Patanjali Sutra is named as the 'royal path'. Yogananda named it the airplane-route to God. This has been multiplying since, and the ones who know, do not necessarily 'speak'. The ones who speak, are not necessarily Masters. It takes a devotee to know a Master, and it takes a Master, to recognise a (true) devotee.

Henry I perceive in the larger scheme of things you are right. Although I did notice you mentioned the Royal PATH here as well. For many of us it helps to follow a path to get to a destination even though as you say it can easily become a dogma. I think of the path of Kriya and how it slows my respiration and simultaneously the thought processes slow down making it much easier to slip into the meditative state at various depths. I often also use the ‘path’ of Iam created by Amma which is very helpful to me when my mind is more agitated or I have a lot of external commotion in my immediate experience.
