               It was Paramahansa Yogananda who not only made a great contribution to the restoration the ancient teachings of Jesus Christ and Kriya Yoga to the world, but according to many recent witnesses He personally lived that Christ like life in every aspect. I have not heard of a greater modern Living Prophet!
This blog will present some aspects of Yogananda's Legacy for the world as it is known by His Self-Realization Fellowship.

With greatest clarity and insight  He shows us the way to transform our lives through regular practice of Self-Realization Fellowship Study Lessons... and other important Yogananda wisdom writings. The Science of Kriya Yoga from YSS/SRF will help you reach your greatest potential in this life.  With increasing Mind Awareness and Happiness along the way. Go for it !

This Master's life example and works are transforming/enriching the lives of millions through Self-Realization Fellowship/YSS home lessons and publications. They come with ongoing personal counselling and personal instructions/initiations by SRF monastics.
Since Yogananda's passing in March 1952  Self-Realization Fellowship/YSS has experienced continued growth and open-
minded progressive development in many areas. Contrary to negative comments by competitors, SRF/YSS is moving forward with great and enlightened leadership.

Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons on the advanced kriya yoga meditation & lifestyle.


SRF/YSS has succeeded in successfully, accurately, and
reliably publishing the major portion of the
Master's great legacy in written, audio, 
and video formats.
 His newest orange covered 
editions of the
 "Autobiography of a Yogi" are still 
appearing on best seller lists.[Spain 2011].
These Self-Realization Fellowship orange covered editions
still radiate with the power of Yogananda's light and love!

All other bootleg editions of the 1946 Autobiography are incomplete & out of date with the masters wishes[including Kindle 1946 editions].
 

 These are the scientifically proven and time tested methods 
that Jesus and Krishna 
privately taught to their disciples in ages past. 

  This is what was never written by Jesus's
  apostles following the master's
 instructions.
JC said "Hearing they do not hear, 
seeing they cannot see,...so I speak to
them in Parables" pp

The lives of many true saints of this path are are
a living testimony to the validity and quality
of this new global spiritual dispensation.
SRF is not a cult or a new age teaching.
SRF is not a subsect or offshoot of any other faith,
as it contains the essence of all major faiths.

Do not be misled by theories of "only one way"
or "progressive revelation" claims.
 

Gospel writings & teachings have suffered many 
distortions for political, cultural, personal and other 
reasons  for so many centuries, leaving the average
believer with faulty understandings of the Real
nature and presence of the real "First Christ."
This universal "Christ Consciousness" was known long
before the time of Jesus as "Kristos" for the Greeks 
"Kutustha Caitanya" or "Krishna consciousness" for Hindus.
In the 19th century a number of savants and 
healers in the East and the West began significant 
spiritual movements to popularize the more
accurate picture of ancient teachings of the
 formless Christ consciousness, Pluralism,
transcendentalism, 
and self transformation.

This early work in India and America has been
further clarified and demonstrated in the
lives of a number of  persons such as the Fillmores,
M Curtis Hopkins, Earnest Holmes, Emmet Fox,
and many others of the New Thought Alliance.
 But it was Paramahansa Yogananda 
who brought
from India the advanced methodology of  Kriya Yoga
techniques and of his own life example.
He founded the 
non-sectarian  society of the
Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Sat Sangha.
This legacy, is a major global dispensation that
 is clearly changing the direction spiritual thinking in  Western and global civilization. 

That same "Consciousness of the Christ"
was fully manifested in the 
lives of many other 
saviors/Gurus from various cultures since the world began. 
Open up your mind to these new and enlightening healing self-transformative concepts.
One will not make serious progress spiritually until one
can go beyond the dark programming of ones cultural
religious  heritage. Which more or less teaches you 
popular ideas of the "many". 

Remember always, Yogananda's teaching of 
this "universal Christ Consciousness"  does not
contradict the Bible, even though it may seem to
contradict your personal interpretation and
religious programming of  said scriptures.
If your education and programming was done
solely by academics and clergy, you may have
some serious work to do on reprogramming yourself.

Paramahansa Yogananda said; Do you see how much the church movement needs reformation? They expect people  to follow religion by proxy. But truth has to be lived,  it has to be Realized as part of ones being."
[Page 239, Journey to Self Realization, SRF Publishers LA USA.]

The most important missionary
duty you will ever have is changing yourself! 
Free yourself  from the "One Way Trap." 

One of the cultural deficits that originated with
the writings of the first gospels was the tradition
of secrecy that allowed writers to give only a hint
of the means and methods of becoming like a Christ.
Jesus said that the public should be taught in
"Parables", as they could not understand deeper issues.
His apostles followed this tradition by leaving out
most of the esoteric methodology for achieving that
higher consciousness. All of this missing data is
now being unveiled by the Holy Spirit through
Yogananda's Self-Realization Fellowship.
These advanced concepts of Pluralism and
Kriya Yoga, and the accurate teachings of
Christ Consciousness
that were taught to the original apostles in private by Jesus. 

The earth is no longer flat, 
The sun does not revolve around the earth.
The earth 
is no longer six thousand years old.
We have many,many, lifetimes on this planet.
We are not the puppets of a cosmic dictator.
No Single Prophet, Faith, sect, or Holy Book
is some God's "only way" or final word on truth.

That " Only One Way" chant is now a dying
myth 
in today's better informed world.

Even if you deem your favorite sacred writ to 
be
 divinely inspired or inerrant, that's the lesser problem.
Your 
greater problem is your programmed personal misinterpretation of  scripture. Your own interpretation will change over time - what then?

Which one of the many interpretations is correct
is not always so easy to know. Are you aware
that most of what you believe is not the teaching
of great souls, but the legal edicts of Roman
politicians [
emperors] who were aware that
religion was a great way to control the masses.
All of that false intel is now programmed into your genes!
Free Yourself with Kriya Yoga Meditation ! 

The Self Realization Fellowship/YSS, to whom
Paramahansa Yogananda gave full authority
and copyright over his legacy and teachings, 
and through which the spiritual blessings
& personal guidance of the masters still richly flows, 
 maintains the devotion and fidelity of Master's wisdom and Yogananda's teachings for the world. 

Yogananda is a "Living Prophet." Those who seek lesser teachers teachers will primarily look for a body.
They will be also looking for someone who
will give them a position or praise as a
lesser teacher long before they are ready - this is an Ego trap.  
 A true Guru 
will teach you how to become really free
of all of your limited 
programming, and teaches
a non-sectarian universal
way of relating in harmony with all our relationships.

What did Jesus really say privately and publicly in Judea?

Review by PYislove  [Federico Parente ]

The Second Coming of Christ;
              Resurrecting the Christ within you. "


Yogananda's soul enlightening commentary "The Second Coming of Christ,"    is a long awaited literary spiritual masterpiece from Self-Realization Fellowship Publishers.[released Sept 2004].
 This new global spiritual revelation/scripture is destined to reshape the worlds view of many religious/spiritual concepts. As it dissolves dogmatic barriers it will greatly aid in bringing about a true Brotherhood of Humanity, a real religious tolerance and ecumenicism, and accelerate the higher spiritual awareness that Self-Realization Fellowship has been inspiring in the world since Paramahansa Yogananda arrived in the West almost a century ago.

In spite of some academic claims that something written over 60 years ago may be out of date.
You will find that Yogananda's Gospel commentary is at least equal to if not superior to anything written recently on this subject, and most of all, it is uniquely a most enlightened new scripture that will give spiritual seekers and scholars alike a new and inspiring sources to draw from when comparing various classical world scriptures. This Scripture takes one far beyond the cerebral academic notes of many other documents issued for past centuries, perhaps millenniums. 

 There are several reasons that make this work especially qualified to accurately represent the real teachings of Jesus the Christ.

One of the most remarkable testimonials comes from the following reliable source;

Bro. Anandamoy said in a Yoga Journal Interview:

YJ; "
   You were with Paramahansa Yogananda at his retreat in the desert when he was writing his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita. Can you tell us what that was like? "

Br A: "   It's very hard to convey. It was for me a spiritual experience—and you cannot describe a spiritual experience with language, because language is based on sense perception. I can only say that when I went into the room where he was working, the presence of God was so tangible that it was to me like stepping into God Himself. That divine vibration filled the whole room, and clearly flowed through the Master. Whereas a scholar might pause to consider how he wanted to interpret an idea, Paramahansaji didn't need to stop and think about what to say. He just went on hour after hour—without interruption, without pause, sometimes far into the night. It was obvious that he was in a deep state of God-communion, and that he was receiving his inspiration
directly from God.

"   I remember on one occasion, his secretary stopped typing and said, "Sir, the word   you just used does not exist in the English language."   The Master turned to her and said, "  Yes it does. Look it up in the dictionary." "Sir, it's not here."    "Then that dictionary is no good," he replied. "Look in another one."    She searched for the word in a second dictionary, but it was not there either. So he again told her to look in another dictionary. She left the room and came back with two more dictionaries—bigger ones—and set them down on the floor. The third one did not have it, but the fourth one, the biggest one, did. "You see,"   he said, "if the word didn't exist, God would not have given it to me." Then he asked not to be interrupted anymore. "We have important work to do,"   he said.

"   So you see, this was not an intellectual interpretation, "  man-made"    so to speak, based on one man's thought about what life was all about. This was truth, straight from God...

"   Part of his mission was to interpret the scriptures of East and West—specifically, the Gita, which is the
essence of the Vedas and the Upanishads, and certain parts of the Christian Bible, namely the Gospels and some passages of Revelation and Genesis—and show that their teachings are fundamentally the same. He said, "   In their underlying unity, all true scriptures reveal the same truths. . . . The seeming differences of revelations are on the surface merely, caused by the racial and environmental influences surrounding the prophets. Each one is singing his own hymn of the same one Infinite. "    E N D

(Bro. A talking about the Gita in
Yoga Journal)

"    Yogananda also said in the introduction to SCC that He did not write this, He was only the instrument. It came directly from Christ.  "
 

When you read/study this new and sacred scripture, you may then see why it stands out and restores truth.
Then compare this work with others and you should see the difference!


(a)The author Himself actually lived the life described in these gospels- Paramahansa Yogananda was a modern Christ in every regard. If one cannot see this in the Second Coming book, this fact can be further verified through a couple of more years study of the Masters life and other teachings. Plus when this book was released there were still a few living witnesses to His divine stature. And for the future, many have written of their experiences with this great Master. He was and still is a " living Master."

(b)Yogananda goes far beyond other academics/clergy and theologians. He not only gives a spiritually potent and convincing explanations of Jesus teachings and the spiritual life, but also the fullest and clearest self-trans-formative teaching on how to reach that high state of Self-realization. He takes you on the actual journey and explains every step of the way. You would not get more or better instruction even if you were in the presence of another physical teacher. Keep in mind here, that a teacher living in a body , unless
God-Realized, is not a living Master or Guru. He like most of us is still spiritually dead.


(c)The proof and value of the extensive spiritual instructions you will find in the second coming [and other works by Yogananda] have already been effectively verified by Yogananda's divine lineage and many successor disciples and devotees - it works!

 


(d)His approach that he is not attempting to prove the authenticity and factualness of the Early Gospels [see Page 69] is very telling of His foresight and wisdom. This very area, is where many embarrassed and presumptuous writers previously made their first mistake. Assuming that everything in writing is the unadulterated "  word of God."  
This intelligent caution alone sets him apart and speaks to his humility.
His work also avoids another great error, taking everything literally..........


(e)He uses the mystical path of Yoga Sciences and Vedic spiritual wisdom as the background to share with us the inner/fuller meanings and purposes of Jesus the Christ's teachings and mission. Whereas various other commentators on these same documents have been attempting to show the origins of many Gospel passages as originating only in Buddhistic and Egyptian traditions.

(f)The value and veracity of a true revelatory spiritual message rests in part upon its useful and original ideas and answers for the spiritual seeker. Here Yogananda gives us a cornucopia of valuable and refreshingly original approaches to many of the heretofore mysteries of the bible. He fills in a lot of the blanks that were left when other writers on these subjects attempted to come up with similar concepts.
One can clearly see herein the difference between previous "  attempts"   to explain subtle matters and Yogananda's finished product. These commentaries are not a product of the Intellect, but a direct transmission of wisdom from the Reality of Christ Consciousness.

(g) And above all, the author avoids the greatest of all pitfalls so many others got tripped up on - the true meaning of Christ's second coming! You will find in the gospels that the reason why Jesus says "no man can know the day or the hour of his return" , is simply because he will not be making a public earth shaking second public appearance. Something that Prophets/saviors never do, and with good reason. His actual second coming occurs only in the lives of those who become one with Him as Christ consciousness or God and is happening to a few souls continually from all faiths. This process is fairly well explained in the Gospels themselves, and clarified beautifully by Paramahansa Yogananda with a great deal of evidence.

All others who have attempted to claim the popular idea of a world shaking celebrity public return have ended up looking like fools and frauds. They were all still lost in popular dogmatic belief systems left over from the times when Rome was calling the shots. Many of todays church beliefs were not divinely inspired, but actually political decisions to control others. Yogananda instead supports His universal "Christ Consciousness" concept with ample evidence and conviction, freeing all seekers and faithful from the blind opportunism that has victimized them in the past by the popular doomsday Jesus returning concepts. The pretense by so many false teachers and clergy that they knew when Jesus would return is one of the main claims used by power seeking persons who like to impress the naive believers to gain large followings.
Such persons are the ones that the scriptures warn us about - " False Prophets."

It gives credit to this Gurus way of returning the power from blind leaders to the individual devotee. It further demonstrates how obedience to the Master results in the greatest freedom, self-empowerment, and god-realization for all who make the effort using the right means. Then one becomes truly free. Free from so many old habits, addictions, and bad programming and institution misdirection.

This work thus truly represents the Jesus of Judean times, and shares with us His inner teachings that were given to the Apostles in private. Before time, men, and politics distorted and/or lost so much of the beautiful wisdom that Jesus taught back then. And much that was also kept so secretive, as was required in the mystical customs of those ancient days.

It is truly fitting that after the attempts of so many other well meaning but ineffectual claims of other prophets who claimed credit for themselves restoring Jesus true teachings, it is a Yogi prophet from India [where Jesus spent almost half of his life] who is able to finally reveal the true light and clarity of that ancient and sacred teaching. A light that has already given new hope to millions of spiritual seekers around the globe for the last hundred and fifty years.

This book tells us about some of Jesus amazing connections with India that have been verified through history.

It goes into great detail on spiritual practice, wisdom, and healing,  also the Master -Disciple relationship as the door to heaven before death, and the value of the spiritual life to the fulfillment of ones happiness and every other noble goal of life. The author presents a universal teaching that persons of all faiths will greatly benefit from, even without changing their own faith. This is literally the Science of Religion.

You will find that Yogananda's Gospel commentary is at least equal to if not superior to anything written recently on this subject, and most of all, it is uniquely a most enlightened new scripture that will give spiritual seekers and scholars alike a new and inspiring sources to draw from when comparing various classical world scriptures. This Scripture takes one far beyond the cerebral academic notes of many other documents issued for past centuries, perhaps millenniums. 

 There are several reasons that make this work especially qualified to accurately represent the real teachings of Jesus the Christ.

One of the most remarkable testimonials comes from the following reliable source;

Bro. Anandamoy said in a Yoga Journal Interview:

YJ; "
   You were with Paramahansa Yogananda at his retreat in the desert when he was writing his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita. Can you tell us what that was like? "

Br A: "   It's very hard to convey. It was for me a spiritual experience—and you cannot describe a spiritual experience with language, because language is based on sense perception. I can only say that when I went into the room where he was working, the presence of God was so tangible that it was to me like stepping into God Himself. That divine vibration filled the whole room, and clearly flowed through the Master. Whereas a scholar might pause to consider how he wanted to interpret an idea, Paramahansaji didn't need to stop and think about what to say. He just went on hour after hour—without interruption, without pause, sometimes far into the night. It was obvious that he was in a deep state of God-communion, and that he was receiving his inspiration
directly from God.

"   I remember on one occasion, his secretary stopped typing and said, "Sir, the word   you just used does not exist in the English language."   The Master turned to her and said, "  Yes it does. Look it up in the dictionary." "Sir, it's not here."    "Then that dictionary is no good," he replied. "Look in another one."    She searched for the word in a second dictionary, but it was not there either. So he again told her to look in another dictionary. She left the room and came back with two more dictionaries—bigger ones—and set them down on the floor. The third one did not have it, but the fourth one, the biggest one, did. "You see,"   he said, "if the word didn't exist, God would not have given it to me." Then he asked not to be interrupted anymore. "We have important work to do,"   he said.

"   So you see, this was not an intellectual interpretation, "  man-made"    so to speak, based on one man's thought about what life was all about. This was truth, straight from God...

"   Part of his mission was to interpret the scriptures of East and West—specifically, the Gita, which is the
essence of the Vedas and the Upanishads, and certain parts of the Christian Bible, namely the Gospels and some passages of Revelation and Genesis—and show that their teachings are fundamentally the same. He said, "   In their underlying unity, all true scriptures reveal the same truths. . . . The seeming differences of revelations are on the surface merely, caused by the racial and environmental influences surrounding the prophets. Each one is singing his own hymn of the same one Infinite. "    E N D >>>>>>

(Bro. A talking about the Gita in
Yoga Journal)

"    Yogananda also said in the introduction to SCC that He did not write this, He was only the instrument. It came directly from Christ.  "
 

When you read/study this new and sacred scripture, you may then see why it stands out and restores truth.
Then compare this work with others and you should see the difference!


(a)The author Himself actually lived the life described in these gospels- Paramahansa Yogananda was a modern Christ in every regard. If one cannot see this in the Second Coming book, this fact can be further verified through a couple of more years study of the Masters life and other teachings. Plus when this book was released there were still a few living witnesses to His divine stature. And for the future, many have written of their experiences with this great Master. He was and still is a " living Master."

(b)Yogananda goes far beyond other academics/clergy and theologians. He not only gives a spiritually potent and convincing explanations of Jesus teachings and the spiritual life, but also the fullest and clearest self-trans-formative teaching on how to reach that high state of Self-realization. He takes you on the actual journey and explains every step of the way. You would not get more or better instruction even if you were in the presence of another physical teacher. Keep in mind here, that a teacher living in a body , unless
God-Realized, is not a living Master or Guru. He like most of us is still spiritually dead.


(c)The proof and value of the extensive spiritual instructions you will find in the second coming [and other works by Yogananda] have already been effectively verified by Yogananda's divine lineage and many successor disciples and devotees - it works!

 


(d)His approach that he is not attempting to prove the authenticity and factualness of the Early Gospels [see Page 69] is very telling of His foresight and wisdom. This very area, is where many embarrassed and presumptuous writers previously made their first mistake. Assuming that everything in writing is the unadulterated "  word of God."  
This intelligent caution alone sets him apart and speaks to his humility.
His work also avoids another great error, taking everything literally..........


(e)He uses the mystical path of Yoga Sciences and Vedic spiritual wisdom as the background to share with us the inner/fuller meanings and purposes of Jesus the Christ's teachings and mission. Whereas various other commentators on these same documents have been attempting to show the origins of many Gospel passages as originating only in Buddhistic and Egyptian traditions.

(f)The value and veracity of a true revelatory spiritual message rests in part upon its useful and original ideas and answers for the spiritual seeker. Here Yogananda gives us a cornucopia of valuable and refreshingly original approaches to many of the heretofore mysteries of the bible. He fills in a lot of the blanks that were left when other writers on these subjects attempted to come up with similar concepts.
One can clearly see herein the difference between previous "  attempts"   to explain subtle matters and Yogananda's finished product. These commentaries are not a product of the Intellect, but a direct transmission of wisdom from the Reality of Christ Consciousness.

(g) And above all, the author avoids the greatest of all pitfalls so many others got tripped up on - the true meaning of Christ's second coming! You will find in the gospels that the reason why Jesus says "no man can know the day or the hour of his return" , is simply because he will not be making a public earth shaking second public appearance. Something that Prophets/saviors never do, and with good reason. His actual second coming occurs only in the lives of those who become one with Him as Christ consciousness or God and is happening to a few souls continually from all faiths. This process is fairly well explained in the Gospels themselves, and clarified beautifully by Paramahansa Yogananda with a great deal of evidence.

All others who have attempted to claim the popular idea of a world shaking celebrity public return have ended up looking like fools and frauds. They were all still lost in popular dogmatic belief systems left over from the times when Rome was calling the shots. Many of todays church beliefs were not divinely inspired, but actually political decisions to control others. Yogananda instead supports His universal "Christ Consciousness" concept with ample evidence and conviction, freeing all seekers and faithful from the blind opportunism that has victimized them in the past by the popular doomsday Jesus returning concepts. The pretense by so many false teachers and clergy that they knew when Jesus would return is one of the main claims used by power seeking persons who like to impress the naive believers to gain large followings.
Such persons are the ones that the scriptures warn us about - " False Prophets."

It gives credit to this Gurus way of returning the power from blind leaders to the individual devotee. It further demonstrates how obedience to the Master results in the greatest freedom, self-empowerment, and god-realization for all who make the effort using the right means. Then one becomes truly free. Free from so many old habits, addictions, and bad programming and institution misdirection.

This work thus truly represents the Jesus of Judean times, and shares with us His inner teachings that were given to the Apostles in private. Before time, men, and politics distorted and/or lost so much of the beautiful wisdom that Jesus taught back then. And much that was also kept so secretive, as was required in the mystical customs of those ancient days.

It is truly fitting that after the attempts of so many other well meaning but ineffectual claims of other prophets who claimed credit for themselves restoring Jesus true teachings, it is a Yogi prophet from India [where Jesus spent almost half of his life] who is able to finally reveal the true light and clarity of that ancient and sacred teaching. A light that has already given new hope to millions of spiritual seekers around the globe for the last hundred and fifty years.

This book tells us about some of Jesus amazing connections with India that have been verified through history.

It goes into great detail on spiritual practice, wisdom, and healing,  also the Master -Disciple relationship as the door to heaven before death, and the value of the spiritual life to the fulfillment of ones happiness and every other noble goal of life. The author presents a universal teaching that persons of all faiths will greatly benefit from, even without changing their own faith. This is literally the Science of Religion.

The Second Coming of Christ;
              Resurrecting the Christ within you. "


Yogananda's soul enlightening commentary "The Second Coming of Christ,"    is a long awaited literary spiritual masterpiece from Self-Realization Fellowship Publishers.[released Sept 2004].

Review by PYislove  [Federico Parente ]

The Second Coming of Christ;
              Resurrecting the Christ within you. "


Yogananda's soul enlightening commentary "The Second Coming of Christ,"    is a long awaited literary spiritual masterpiece from Self-Realization Fellowship Publishers.[released Sept 2004].
 This new global spiritual revelation/scripture is destined to reshape the worlds view of many religious/spiritual concepts. As it dissolves dogmatic barriers it will greatly aid in bringing about a true Brotherhood of Humanity, a real religious tolerance and ecumenicism, and accelerate the higher spiritual awareness that Self-Realization Fellowship has been inspiring in the world since Paramahansa Yogananda arrived in the West almost a century ago.

In spite of some academic claims that something written over 60 years ago may be out of date.
You will find that Yogananda's Gospel commentary is at least equal to if not superior to anything written recently on this subject, and most of all, it is uniquely a most enlightened new scripture that will give spiritual seekers and scholars alike a new and inspiring sources to draw from when comparing various classical world scriptures. This Scripture takes one far beyond the cerebral academic notes of many other documents issued for past centuries, perhaps millenniums. 

 There are several reasons that make this work especially qualified to accurately represent the real teachings of Jesus the Christ.

One of the most remarkable testimonials comes from the following reliable source;

Bro. Anandamoy said in a Yoga Journal Interview:

YJ; "
   You were with Paramahansa Yogananda at his retreat in the desert when he was writing his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita. Can you tell us what that was like? "

Br A: "   It's very hard to convey. It was for me a spiritual experience—and you cannot describe a spiritual experience with language, because language is based on sense perception. I can only say that when I went into the room where he was working, the presence of God was so tangible that it was to me like stepping into God Himself. That divine vibration filled the whole room, and clearly flowed through the Master. Whereas a scholar might pause to consider how he wanted to interpret an idea, Paramahansaji didn't need to stop and think about what to say. He just went on hour after hour—without interruption, without pause, sometimes far into the night. It was obvious that he was in a deep state of God-communion, and that he was receiving his inspiration
directly from God.

"   I remember on one occasion, his secretary stopped typing and said, "Sir, the word   you just used does not exist in the English language."   The Master turned to her and said, "  Yes it does. Look it up in the dictionary." "Sir, it's not here."    "Then that dictionary is no good," he replied. "Look in another one."    She searched for the word in a second dictionary, but it was not there either. So he again told her to look in another dictionary. She left the room and came back with two more dictionaries—bigger ones—and set them down on the floor. The third one did not have it, but the fourth one, the biggest one, did. "You see,"   he said, "if the word didn't exist, God would not have given it to me." Then he asked not to be interrupted anymore. "We have important work to do,"   he said.

"   So you see, this was not an intellectual interpretation, "  man-made"    so to speak, based on one man's thought about what life was all about. This was truth, straight from God...

"   Part of his mission was to interpret the scriptures of East and West—specifically, the Gita, which is the
essence of the Vedas and the Upanishads, and certain parts of the Christian Bible, namely the Gospels and some passages of Revelation and Genesis—and show that their teachings are fundamentally the same. He said, "   In their underlying unity, all true scriptures reveal the same truths. . . . The seeming differences of revelations are on the surface merely, caused by the racial and environmental influences surrounding the prophets. Each one is singing his own hymn of the same one Infinite. "    E N D >>>>>>

(Bro. A talking about the Gita in
Yoga Journal)

"    Yogananda also said in the introduction to SCC that He did not write this, He was only the instrument. It came directly from Christ.  "
 

When you read/study this new and sacred scripture, you may then see why it stands out and restores truth.
Then compare this work with others and you should see the difference!


(a)The author Himself actually lived the life described in these gospels- Paramahansa Yogananda was a modern Christ in every regard. If one cannot see this in the Second Coming book, this fact can be further verified through a couple of more years study of the Masters life and other teachings. Plus when this book was released there were still a few living witnesses to His divine stature. And for the future, many have written of their experiences with this great Master. He was and still is a " living Master."

(b)Yogananda goes far beyond other academics/clergy and theologians. He not only gives a spiritually potent and convincing explanations of Jesus teachings and the spiritual life, but also the fullest and clearest self-trans-formative teaching on how to reach that high state of Self-realization. He takes you on the actual journey and explains every step of the way. You would not get more or better instruction even if you were in the presence of another physical teacher. Keep in mind here, that a teacher living in a body , unless
God-Realized, is not a living Master or Guru. He like most of us is still spiritually dead.


(c)The proof and value of the extensive spiritual instructions you will find in the second coming [and other works by Yogananda] have already been effectively verified by Yogananda's divine lineage and many successor disciples and devotees - it works!

 


(d)His approach that he is not attempting to prove the authenticity and factualness of the Early Gospels [see Page 69] is very telling of His foresight and wisdom. This very area, is where many embarrassed and presumptuous writers previously made their first mistake. Assuming that everything in writing is the unadulterated "  word of God."  
This intelligent caution alone sets him apart and speaks to his humility.
His work also avoids another great error, taking everything literally..........


(e)He uses the mystical path of Yoga Sciences and Vedic spiritual wisdom as the background to share with us the inner/fuller meanings and purposes of Jesus the Christ's teachings and mission. Whereas various other commentators on these same documents have been attempting to show the origins of many Gospel passages as originating only in Buddhistic and Egyptian traditions.

(f)The value and veracity of a true revelatory spiritual message rests in part upon its useful and original ideas and answers for the spiritual seeker. Here Yogananda gives us a cornucopia of valuable and refreshingly original approaches to many of the heretofore mysteries of the bible. He fills in a lot of the blanks that were left when other writers on these subjects attempted to come up with similar concepts.
One can clearly see herein the difference between previous "  attempts"   to explain subtle matters and Yogananda's finished product. These commentaries are not a product of the Intellect, but a direct transmission of wisdom from the Reality of Christ Consciousness.

(g) And above all, the author avoids the greatest of all pitfalls so many others got tripped up on - the true meaning of Christ's second coming! You will find in the gospels that the reason why Jesus says "no man can know the day or the hour of his return" , is simply because he will not be making a public earth shaking second public appearance. Something that Prophets/saviors never do, and with good reason. His actual second coming occurs only in the lives of those who become one with Him as Christ consciousness or God and is happening to a few souls continually from all faiths. This process is fairly well explained in the Gospels themselves, and clarified beautifully by Paramahansa Yogananda with a great deal of evidence.

All others who have attempted to claim the popular idea of a world shaking celebrity public return have ended up looking like fools and frauds. They were all still lost in popular dogmatic belief systems left over from the times when Rome was calling the shots. Many of todays church beliefs were not divinely inspired, but actually political decisions to control others. Yogananda instead supports His universal "Christ Consciousness" concept with ample evidence and conviction, freeing all seekers and faithful from the blind opportunism that has victimized them in the past by the popular doomsday Jesus returning concepts. The pretense by so many false teachers and clergy that they knew when Jesus would return is one of the main claims used by power seeking persons who like to impress the naive believers to gain large followings.
Such persons are the ones that the scriptures warn us about - " False Prophets."

It gives credit to this Gurus way of returning the power from blind leaders to the individual devotee. It further demonstrates how obedience to the Master results in the greatest freedom, self-empowerment, and god-realization for all who make the effort using the right means. Then one becomes truly free. Free from so many old habits, addictions, and bad programming and institution misdirection.

This work thus truly represents the Jesus of Judean times, and shares with us His inner teachings that were given to the Apostles in private. Before time, men, and politics distorted and/or lost so much of the beautiful wisdom that Jesus taught back then. And much that was also kept so secretive, as was required in the mystical customs of those ancient days.

It is truly fitting that after the attempts of so many other well meaning but ineffectual claims of other prophets who claimed credit for themselves restoring Jesus true teachings, it is a Yogi prophet from India [where Jesus spent almost half of his life] who is able to finally reveal the true light and clarity of that ancient and sacred teaching. A light that has already given new hope to millions of spiritual seekers around the globe for the last hundred and fifty years.

This book tells us about some of Jesus amazing connections with India that have been verified through history.

It goes into great detail on spiritual practice, wisdom, and healing,  also the Master -Disciple relationship as the door to heaven before death, and the value of the spiritual life to the fulfillment of ones happiness and every other noble goal of life. The author presents a universal teaching that persons of all faiths will greatly benefit from, even without changing their own faith. This is literally the Science of Religion.
