“You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God's creative principle works in you.”
“Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.”
“forget the past, for it is gone from your domain! forget the future, for it is beyond your reach! control the present! Live supremely well now! This is the way of the wise...”
“Kindness is the light that dissolves all walls between souls, families, and nations.”
“The body is literally manufactured and sustained by mind.”
“To work with God's happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.”
Swami Kriyananda’s book, Yogananda for the World, seeks to correct certain serious errors in the way that the life, mission, and legacy of Paramhansa Yogananda (author of Autobiography of a Yogi) have been presented.
Yogananda gave the world a revolutionary teaching. He showed how people can make their religion practical by experiencing inner communion with God. He taught Self-realization, a timeless ideal that all can embrace for their highest fulfillment.
Since Yogananda’s passing, so many changes have been made to his writings, teachings, and his stated mission, aims, and ideals, that his legacy is threatened. Even his signature has been altered, and a new signature forged in its place. Yogananda for the World explains the changes and suggests a course of action to prevent the great master’s work and its original spirit from being lost forever.
