The Yoga Of Jesus – Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels (Self-Realization Fellowship)
• The lost years of Jesus in India
• The ancient science of Meditation: How to Become a Christ
• The true meaning of baptism.
The Yoga of Jesus attempts to blend what is known about the path of Christ in union with the principles found in the Bhagavad Gita. It should be noted that in the brief introduction to this book, a companion text is meant to accompany The Yoga of Jesus, entitled The Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita.
This book is divided into three parts and nine chapters for ease of reading. Chapter two, “Jesus the Yogi.” relays Yogananda’s understanding of ancient manuscripts and his belief that Jesus went to India and lived and ruminated among the yogis, gurus, and wise ones of that time.
Chapter six helps to untangle many people’s confusion about doctrinaire religious practices and the metaphysics of Christ’s consciousness. The Yoga of Jesus essentially portends that one can clothe the path to enlightenment in various religious raiment, but the consciousness of infinite life and light is one and the same for all approaches. Simple enough, but as many people know, the world of Mayaeveryday reality is powerful. We have to eat, have shelter, and cover our bodies for warmth. These requirements often obscure not only the object of life but also the spirit, which is our birthright.
This sweet treatise is ecumenical in nature and full of insight as it reminds us we can always be intoxicated with the divinely wondrous. The use of daily meditation will keep the seeker “in the zone” irrespective of any given stated religious preference. –New Age Retailer
