"In this remarkable book, Paramahansa Yogananda reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this universal science of God-realization to his closest disciples. Compiled from the author's highly praised two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You, this insightful and compact book transcends the centuries of dogma and misunderstanding that have obscured the original teachings of Jesus, showing that he taught a unifying path by which seekers of all faiths can enter the kingdom of God. Topics include: The lost years of Jesus in India The ancient science of meditation: how to become a Christ The true meaning of baptism How the principles and methods of yoga parallel the teachings of the greatest Christian saints and mystics""
Paramahansa Yogananda presents an illuminating explanation of Lord Krishna's sublime Yoga message that he preached to the world - the way of right activity and meditation for divine communion.
This book is addressed to serious Biblical students, Christians who are interested in comparing Eastern spiritual teachings with those of Christianity, and students of spiritual Yoga, otherwise known as Classical Yoga and Tantra, as well as students and practitioners of meditation and other spiritual disciplines. The discoveries of ancient manuscripts, and their analysis by independent critical scholars using scientific methods, provide much insight into the original teachings of Jesus. The sayings of Jesus, circulated orally during the first decades following his crucifixion are probably the most authentic source of his teachings that we have available today. These sayings are limited to a few dozen parables, aphorisms and sharp retorts, which were repeated in the oral tradition for two or three decades before they were eventually recorded by the anonymous writers of the Gospels. Remarkably, what Jesus taught through his parables and sayings exactly parallels the yogic teachings of the Yoga Siddhas. For those seeking to apply the wisdom of these sayings in their own life, the implications are clear. Seek not to know about God; instead, seek to know God through higher states of consciousness.

"It has a great theme, which is inspiring and moving. The book holds you tight till the end. Congratulations." - Maharaj Kaul, USA "I certainly appreciate your scholarly interpretation and the ability to see the point of convergence of various religions. Needless to say that this is a significant contribution towards greater tolerance and appreciation of the essential goodness in different religious teachings, namely an invitation for enlightenment ie. the state of being one with the cosmos and absence of separation of body, mind and soul." - Simon Joseph, India
Yogananda provides a scientific explanation of the use and power of prayer affirmations for health, success and happiness. The book contributes to conscious understanding and application of the laws governing the super-consciousness. Paramhansa Yogananda was an Indian yogi and guru who introduced millions of westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga through his book, 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Included are comprehensive instructions and a wide variety of affirmations for healing the obdy, developing confidence, awakening wisdom, curing bad habits, and much more.
Drawing on a deep knowledge of Christian scripture as well as Hindu philosophy, musician and teacher Russill Paul reveals that the mystical core of religion offers us much more than the simple solace of unthinking dogma. By demonstrating that these two seemingly separate and irreconcilable religions can actually unite in one person’s spiritual practice at the center of his life — as they did in his — he offers an alternative to religious intolerance and strife, as well as hope for personal liberation.
The hardcover edition of The Second Coming of Christ ($58.00 ISBN:9780876125557) was printed in 2004 and has sold over 45,000 copies. In Fall 2007 we published a smaller work of extracts from The Second Coming of Christ, titled The Yoga of Jesus, to function both as a stand alone book and to cross-promote the larger work. The result has been a resounding success with sales of The Yoga of Jesus reaching 20,000 in just over six months, and sales of The Second Coming of Christ increasing as planned. With sales momentum of both titles strong, this seemed like an ideal time to publish a low cost paperback edition. Yogananda's unique perspective on the real meaning of Jesus' teachings, takes the reader on a revelatory journey, verse by verse, through the four Gospels. Dispelling centuries old misconceptions and dogma, this monumental work is destined to leave an indelible mark on the way the world views the teachings of Jesus Christ.
"What happens as we grow spiritually? Is there a step-by-step process that everyone goes through-all spiritual seekers, including those of any or no religious persuasion-as they gradually work their way upward, until they achieve the highest state of Self-realization? About 2200 years ago, a great spiritual master of India named Patanjali described this process, and presented humanity with a clear-cut, step-by-step outline of how all truth seekers and saints achieve divine union. He called this universal inner experience and process "yoga" or "union." His collection of profound aphorisms-a true world scripture-has been dubbed Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Unfortunately, since that time many scholarly translators with little or no spiritual realization have written commentaries on Patanjali's writings that have succeeded only in burying his pithy insights in convoluted phrases like "becomes assimilated with transformations" and "the object alone shines without deliberation." How can any reader understand Patanjali's original meaning when he or she has to wade through such bewildering terminology?Thankfully, a great modern yoga master-Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi-has cut through the scholarly debris and resurrected Patanjali's original teachings and revelations. Now, in Demystifying Patanjali, Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda, shares his guru's crystal clear and easy-to-grasp explanations of Patanjali's aphorisms.As Kriyananda writes in his introduction, "My Guru personally shared with me some of his most important insights into these sutras. During the three and a half years I lived with him, he also went with me at great length into the basic teachings of yoga. "I was able, moreover, to ask my Guru personally about many of the subjects covered by Patanjali. His explanations have lingered with me, and have been a priceless help in the [writing of this book]."--
