Paramahansa Yogananda’s promise to All SRF/YSS Devotees
“Of my own free will I give my time to serve you all. My reward is those souls who really love God and are in tune with this work of Self-Realization. I am not bound or attached to anything; any time I wish to walk out I can do so for I have no illusions of name and fame — which only means to be beautifully eulogized and then buried. Whoever comes, freely I give of my time and my realization. And if you would receive, receive it. I am only too glad to give to you, for I know how hard it is to be without the Infinite Beloved. No matter where I am, you will receive from me that friendship and help. The tiger of death is after you, and you must reach Home. If you value your souls, you will make the effort. Study the Self-Realization Lessons, Practice the techniques, Meditate deeply; and if you sincerely persist for seven years with intense concentration, you will have such spiritual satisfaction in your life that you will never forsake or forget this path. So don’t wait. I come only to tell you of that joy. And I ask nothing of you but that you tune in with me, so that I may give you that joy which is in me even as I talk — that joy of God.”………………..

Note to all seekers; I would caution you against believing many claims I have heard about various “gurus” who claim to be working for Yogananda in the cause of Kriya yoga, or those who say Yogananda works through them. It doesn’t work that way!
Yogananda has made it absolutely clear that He works only through SRF/YSS and its leader.
This fact is mentioned by Yogananda over 100 times in His writings and talks.
“Kriya Yoga is more than just a set of instructions.” Daya Mata said.
If you doubt this reread the quote above again and again!
<stronger> The Master said;
“Inherent in the SRF/YSS teachings and spiritual techniques are the help and blessings of SRF/YSS line of Gurus”
It is a built in aspect of taking these lessons from mother Center, then you will be in tune with Yoganandaji
and receive the blessings which come with Loyalty and attunement with His work in SRF/YSS
Other teachers and paths may tell you that it makes no difference whether or not you
get your Kriya Yoga instructions from them or from SRF/YSS. According to Yogananda
such claims are absolutely false. Look at the history of SRF/YSS, this is a path with
proven results and many immaculate souls. Paramahansa Yogananda talks about the
membership in Self-Realization Fellowship being the key to the link with the Great Masters
of this holy path.
