THE YOGA OF JESUS contains a selection of material from the highly praised, two volume work, The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You. This concise book confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew the principles of yoga but taught this universal science of God-realisation to his disciples. Yogananda, who is widely recognised 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 faith traditions can enter the kingdom of God.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It will spend the rest of my lifetime on my bookshelf, next to the classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, also by Paramahansa Yogananda. I'm sure I will read it again and again, gleaning the wisdom and attempting to incorporate it into my every day existence. This man was a saint and I am very grateful for his incarnation upon earth, leaving written truth, enabling spiritual seekers access to the meaning of existence.
Parahamansa Yogananda once stated that his divine mission was to bring to the west evidence that all religions shared one God. He amply supplies much evidence in this book, accurately quoting the Bible and placing realistic interpretations on the passages he quotes. He marries Eastern teachings with those of the Bible seamlessly. Those who wish to evaluate Eastern reachings and gain a wider perspective of the Bible will certainly enjoy this book
