Summary

In this remarkable new book, Paramahansa Yogananda provides a revelatory introduction to the hidden yoga of the Gospels. A selection of material from his highly acclaimed two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ (Self-Realization Fellowship, 2004), this concise book is designed as both a stand-alone work, and as an introduction to that larger, comprehensive commentary on the Gospels. Yogananda, who is widely known as the father of yoga in the West, explores the role of Jesus as yogi and avatar (divine incarnation). He removes the centuries of dogma and misunderstanding that obscure Christ?s original teachings, and shows that Jesus? message is not about sectarian divisiveness, but a unifying path by which seekers of all faiths traditions can enter the kingdom of God. Topics include: The 'lost years of Jesus? ? in India / The true meaning of baptism / The correlation between 'to be born again? and karma and reincarnation / The relationship between the chakras and the 'seven seals? described by St. John in The Book of Revelation.
