Dear Rupa,

There is no direct connection between kriya and gaining weight.

People gain or lose weight for many reasons. I know hundreds of kriyabans and they are all different as to weight loss or gain.

I suggest you pursue other means of controlling weight and not be concerned about your practice of kriya being a problem.

No doubt some who practice kriya may gain weight and then lose it but the solution does not involve changing your kriya practices. Okay?

Blessings to you,
