It is not commonly known that Lahiri Mahasaya wrote twenty six diaries consisting of his commentaries on the twenty six classical Indian scriptures, all with respect to Kriya Yoga. He gave these diaries to his chief disciple Panchanon Bhattacharya to publish. Hence, in 1888 these remarkable commentaries were published in Bengali, Lahiri Mahasay's native language. Later, these diaries were kept by Lahiri Mahasaya's grandson, Sri Satya Charan Lahiri.
