"This book is a [key to the] door of heaven, a secret treasure-trove of nectarous immortality and the sacred garland around the throats of Kriyavans. One who has once drunk the nectar falling from the Sahasrar - he should sit in complete secrecy and study this book. 'Study' means abiding with complete stillness of mind - meaning, the par avastha of Kriya, which is extremely secret. Because all of these secret matters are in this work, this [work] is hereby given the name 'Manu Rahasya.'" --from the Introduction of the original Bengali Edition of Lahiri Mahasaya's Manu Samhita
From the Back Cover
"In the middle of the eyebrows, at the root of the nasal passage, is the abode of Nectar; if one abides there - the One Who resides there - it is He that is Eternal; He is Omnipresent; thus Supreme" -Yogiraj Lahiri Mahasaya from Commentary on Krishna Yajurvediya Dhyanabindu Upanishad
"Throw vayu up into space, abide as no-self in the par avastha of Kriya, remain only in Brahman with breath sealed in Brahman and do "yunjana." Via this, there will be "rechak" - meaning: you will be Still" --Yogiraj Lahiri Mahasaya from Commentary on Krishna-Yajurvediya Amritabindu Upanishad
"Remain steadfast in the poise of Kriya and proceed accordingly and all will be good" --Yogiraj Lahiri Mahasaya from the Garland of Letters
