On this auspicious “International Day of Yoga” June 21, 2022, on this beautiful dream home in infinite space.
The world honors the holy life and legacy of Paramahansa Yogananda [founder of Self-Realization Fellowship /Yogoda Sat Sangha] on planet Earth during the 20th century.
He is a Living Savior/Avatar for the present millennia and the ages to come. See the film “Awake.”
This unique film “Awake – the life of Yogananda” released in 2014 by Counterpoint Films is available through Self-Realization Fellowship and other sources to watch or purchase.
Through SRF/YSS the great masters Legacy is now represented by 800 centers & spanning over 172 countries and most continents. His inspiring wisdom and uniquely divine example and ideal life continues to inspire millions of devotees world -wide.
The great master posthumously introduced himself to me through those close to me and a book about His wisdom entitled “The Sayings of Yogananda.” Very shortly after his demise he began bringing many influences into my life setting my consciousness afire with a spiritual quest.
This was a great milestone in my personal search for truth and divine love. I was never consciously seeking a guru at any time. But He knew that I was ready to learn and grow further.
After about 6 previous years of intensive study of world religions and saints – in a flash I was aware that the many amazing answers and helpers that came to me were was under the personal guidance of my savior and living Guru -Paramahansa Yogananda. Through the great agency of the divine mother.
I immediately sent for the SRF Lessons course and began the next momentous step in my long journey to Self-Realization. With daily study and meditations I went from the darkness of dogmatism to the light of “Science of Religions.”
Many wonderful changes and experiences will come to the devotee who loyally and faithfully persists in following this great path of Kriya Yoga. I can clearly state this after many years of steady practice. Life just becomes more and more rewarding and beautiful each day in so many ways. Ones expanded awareness gives deeper insights and understanding of each personal experience.
Many persons begin by reading His “Autobiography of a Yogi” published by Self-Realization Publishers LA USA. Of course now there is a whole library of Yoganandaji’s wisdom to refer to.
The unique features about the life and legacy of Yogananda are not only His superhuman expansion of consciousness to the highest Samadhi, but even more so the accurately retained wisdom that was faithfully passed on by SRF/YSS about His life and Legacy. And the lives of his divine predecessors and successors.
He is recognized as one of the worlds many great saviors we know of through the past several millennia. This is one of most accurate, complete, and detailed life records of one such Avatar/savior. The history of his life and lineage now less that 150 years old – hardly a word of his legacy was lost to Antiquity. His voice, image, and experiences were mostly well recorded, witnessed, and documented. And clearly survive with the living examples of His successors and recorded historical Legacy.
It was my good fortune to have personally met some of those great souls who lived and worked with the Master. From them I was told of His most wonderful life first hand. He is incomparable!
If you really want to know the living presence and essence of Yoganandji and his ever expanding love, it will not come by intellectual study alone, but it manifests in the life of any loyal and devoted devotee who understand the import and great awareness of His living presence. The more we meditate and read mostly or only His wisdom record, the more perfectly we become attuned to his everliving omnipresence every moment. Just imagine how beautiful that is!
This miracle to witness was one of the great blessings to shower my simple life as a householder yogi.
Attunement with a true Guru/Savior enhances ones life in many ways and brings true freedom from the darkness and delusions and confusions of this world enshrouded Mayic dream. This unreality is being especially imposed upon everyone in this modern politicized “Brave New World “That A Huxley and Orson Wells warned us about.
Then you realize you are no longer “one of the many on the road that leads to destruction” as JC said.
In the very advanced science of Kriya Yoga taught to us and demonstrated by Paramahansa Yogananda, we can build our own “portable paradise”. This is the “Kingdom Heaven.”
When you find this great well of pure water -dig deeper and deeper – and keep drinking.
It is so much better that those who just keep digging shallow wells and never experience real pure water. Too many devotees just keep chasing after each new teacher that attract a little attention.
There never was only one way, one perfect holy book, or one savior for mankind !
Changing oneself is the greatest human adventure, your contribution to changing the world!
His codewords were -“Meditate, Meditate, Meditate “!
Jai Guru, Jai Guru. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,June 2022
