Kriyas in Self Development (also known as the "Explore & Evolve" classes) leads to contentment and happiness, even as you carry out your responsibilities or pursue your legitimate goals efficiently. The Kriyas also help promote one's involvement in their own lives. These kriyas are adaptable to people from diverse walks of life such as working-people, students, aged-people, prison-inmates, people with illness etc., besides being adaptable to their individual needs and situations.

Kriyas help the practitioners to come out of cultural and social barriers besides emphasizing practicality. You learn to appreciate life and the things around you whereas the unpleasant or unwanted thoughts that cause stress are discarded. Continuous practice brings about a lasting transformation of the mind. It also teaches the practitioners to overcome dependencies and emotional agitations, and hence evolve as better beings (some even seeking spiritual living). From self-analysis and improving the quality of lives, it can also lead the practitioners to self-realization.

A Kriya-Diary is also available to assist the practitioners in their Kriya-practices. Of the 12 kriyas, the first 4 basic kriyas mentioned below are taught in the "Explore & Evolve" classes.
