According to Mahamuni Babaji the Kriya discipline is for the hill men [renunciates, the wandering yogis or sages] and according to the example set by Babaji’s disciple, Lahiri Mahasay, the polestar of Kriya, is for the householders.
Where is the scope of organization in between the two?
Furthermore, both of them, unequivocally put injunctions not to develop organizations around the Kriya teaching.
“The great master [Lahiri Mahasay] lived his sublime life in partial seclusion, and steadfastly refused to permit his followers to build any organization around his teachings.” Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramhansa Yogananda, 1979 Paperback edition, page 339.
“Only when one receives Kriya from the mouth of a permitted teacher [since the Kriya initiation is a matter of Guruvaktragamya – learning from the living lips of a Guru], one receives actual Kriya initiation [diksha], otherwise, one simply receives Kriya information [and not Kriya initiation] from the unpermitted person or representative of some organization [which are prohibited by Mahamuni Babaji and Lahiri Mahasay.]” - Mahamuni Babaji
