This is an excerpt from the book of the self-realized yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda called “The Science of Religion”. Later rewritten by one of his most advanced and close disciples Swami Kriyananda as “God is for Everyone” In this case he explains various misconception included the one about Krishna and how devotees take the explanations of their gurus very literally and go too far and not really grasp the whole truth.
I recommend this book to any sincere truth seeker
Excerpt starts here:
I want to talk to you today about how you can open your spiritual eye. Or the third eye is like some people call it.
Before I start I want to explain to those of you who don’t know what exactly the spiritual eye is.
The spiritual eye which is also called the Christ center or the Ajna chakra is located at this point between the eyebrows. The conciseness of every enlightened being is always centered at that point. I am sure you have noticed pictures or paintings of yogis and saints how they are often depicted with their eyes looking upward. That’s because all their actions, thoughts and perceptions originate from this point, they are always merged in the light, in the infinite bliss.
As yogis and spiritual seekers our life goal must be to get to this center and live with that conciseness.
The vision of the inner light comes in deep meditation. This light is beheld exactly there at the point between the eyebrows, with your spiritual eye. Once the vision of light in the forehead takes shape, once the mind is deeply concentrated, it becomes the single eye or the spiritual eye.
In Mathew 6:22 Jesus says; the light of the body is the eye; If therefore Thyne eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light”
The spiritual eye is not something that is imaginary. It is something we actually see in deep meditation. You can only see it however when you are spiritually advanced and your thoughts are completely stilled. Read More
Today I want to talk to you about signs of your past life experience. How do you know your past life? How do you even sure you had a past life and what where you in your past life? Are you influenced by your past life experiences and if yes, how you can use this fact to your advantage. I will talk about all these and many more later on in this video so stay with me till the end.
Truth is we live many lives, the yoga scriptures teach that it takes from 5 to 8 million lives to reach even a human level. A soul goes through a long journey toward enlightenment changing many forms and physical bodies, until it learns its lessons and reaches the final stage of complete liberation from the wheel of birth and rebirth in the infinite bliss in God, or moksha as it called in Sanskrit.
In the Bhagavad Gita one of the greatest yoga scriptures when God in the form of Lord Krishna teaches yoga to his friend Arjuna when Arjuna was lamenting that he has to fight against and kill its own brothers and kinsmen then Lord Krishna says to him the following; my dear Arjuna, while speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead. Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change”. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change. Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent material body there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both. That which pervades the entire body you should know to be Read More
Today I want to talk to you about how to remove your bad karma. But first, let me tell you what karma is. Well, karma is essentially action and the consequence of that action. Cause and effect. It’s one of the Divine laws that is part of the whole creation. Every physical it’s noting but just a grosser expression of some Divine spiritual law. For example the law of Physics of Newton, which you may very well know which says every action has its equal or opposite reaction, is just a grosser expression of the more subtle law of Karma. The law of gravity is based on love and attraction. Atoms in the Universe are attracted by each other and held together by Love. The great love of the infinite Spirit from which everything emanates.
In the Bhagavad Gita the one of the Greatest yoga scriptures of all times, Lord Krishna who represents God, teaches his friend Arjuna yoga who represents the yoga devotee, says;
He who knows Me as unborn and beginningless, as the great Lord of the worlds, he, among mortals, is undeluded; and he is liberated from all sins.
Intellect, wisdom, non-delusion, forgiveness, truth, self-restraint, calmness, happiness, pain, birth or existence, death or non-existence, fear and also fearlessness, Non-injury, equanimity, contentment, austerity, fame, beneficence, ill-fame—(these) different kinds of qualities of beings arise from Me alone.

The great Yogi Paramhansa Yogananda described what he experienced in Samadhi when His Guru Swami Sri Yukteswar made it happen for Him. Although this is a experience very difficult to express with words, is the best one I consider. Please read and enjoy:
“Sir, I am meditating,” I shouted protestingly.
“I know how you are meditating,” my guru called out, “with your mind distributed like leaves in a storm! Come here to me.”
Snubbed and exposed, I made my way sadly to his side.
“Poor boy, the mountains couldn’t give what you wanted.” Master spoke caressively, comfortingly. His calm gaze was unfathomable. “Your heart’s desire shall be fulfilled.”
Sri Yukteswar seldom indulged in riddles; I was bewildered. He struck gently on my chest above the heart.
My body became immovably rooted; breath was drawn out of my lungs as if by some huge magnet. Soul and mind instantly lost their physical bondage, and streamed out like a fluid piercing light from my every pore. The flesh was as though dead, yet in my intense awareness I knew that never before had I been fully alive. My sense of identity was no longer narrowly confined to a body, but embraced the circumambient atoms. People on distant streets seemed to be moving gently over my own remote periphery. The roots of plants and trees appeared through a dim transparency of the soil; I discerned the inward flow of their sap.
The whole vicinity lay bare before me. My ordinary frontal vision was now changed to a vast spherical sight, simultaneously all-perceptive. Through the back of my head I saw men strolling far down Rai Ghat Road, and noticed also a white cow who was leisurely approaching. When she reached the space in front of the open ashram gate, I observed her
