In early 2006, Dan Kogan interviewed Yogiraj SatGurunath Siddhanath for Awareness magazine. In the interview Kogan asked Yogiraj SatGurunath several questions on different topics. The following portion is taken from that interview.[Source]
Kogan: You teach something called Kriya yoga. This was taught by Paramahansa Yogananda of the Self-Realization Fellowship 80 years ago in the U.S. There have been other notable Indian sat gurus in America who didn’t teach Kriya yoga–Muktananda, Vivekananda, Shiva Bala Yogi, etc. Why then, Kriya yoga?

Yogiraj SatGurunath: Kriya yoga, given to the world by Babaji Gorakshanath, is a special blessing for a speedy evolution of human consciousness. Those who prefer to meet their beloved divine quickly would do well to pursue the "lightning path" of Kriya yoga. As the Western countries become more and more aware of innate spiritual capabilities, they are being attracted to pursue a swifter path to self realization.

Of course, other paths taught by Swami Muktananda, Vivekananda and Shiv Bala Yogi are well done and can be followed depending on an individual’s choice for his type of evolution. But if you go deep into the systems they taught and initiated, e.g., shaktipat of Vivekananda, Muktananda and Shiv Bala Yogi, all are forms of Kundalini Kriya yoga which assists in the awakening of the dormant energy called kundalini and thereby hastening one’s evolution.

The only difficulty of a Western mind failing to fully comprehend the consciousness of an Indian guru is the very mind itself, which analyses so much that it fails to comprehend the simple path shown by the Indian gurus.
