Yoga & Yogananda

“God Talks With Arjuna – The Bhagavad Gita”  Paramahansa Yogananda

Chapter IV The Supreme Science of Knowing God, The Historical Basis and Esoteric Essence of Yoga

Verse 3 – I have this day informed thee about that same ancient yoga, for thou art My devotee and friend.  This sacred mystery (of yoga) is, indeed, the producer of supreme benefit (to manhood).


I wrote this in February of 2010:  Today has been a dream realized.  We visited SRF – Self Realization Fellowship, the international headquarters in Los Angeles.  I can’t describe the emotions.  There was an aura of love permeating the grounds.  We sat in the meditation room awaiting a guide.  Over the altar were pictures of Babajii, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteshwar, Jesus, Krishna, and Paramahamsa Yogananda.

A nun greeted us and gave us a personal tour, telling us a little about the history of the building and pointing out some of Yogananda’s personal possessions.  She took us to the meditation areas on the grounds.  The view was breathtaking.
