Weekly Commentaries on the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita
Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters)
This profound commentary gives scriptural authority to the ecumenical hopes of our times.
Parallel passages from the Judeo-Christian Bible and the Bhagavad Gita of India reveal a single unified teaching. East meets West and theological barriers tumble. Two scriptures become one Truth.
Concepts such as karma and reincarnation are explained in the words of Jesus; while salvation through grace, and the "only son of God," are described in the Bhagavad Gita.
Rays of the One Light is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda—a great spiritual master from India, and author of the beloved classic, Autobiography of a Yogi.
