Is it necessary to renounce the worldly life and become an ascetic to practice Kriya Yoga?

On the contrary, the practice of Kriya Yoga is most suited to one living in this world as a householder. Practising the techniques of Kriya Yoga, he can live effectively in the real world and yet make incredible spiritual progress. Lahiri Mahashaya, Sannyal Mahashaya and Priyanath Karar (Swami Shriyukteswarji) were all householders with families and associated challenges of a householder’s life. Yet they attained the highest state of realisation. Raja Janaka is an ideal example of a householder who attained so high a state of realization, that a monk like Shukadev accepted him as his Guru.
