Personal & Planetary Evolution

People talk about the Earth as a living being and the coming “New Age” as the “awakening” of the planet itself. The Self-realization teachings explain not only the vast planetary cycles (Yugas), but also the individual karma of those who live through them, and the civilizations they create.

"When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad-Gita. I find a verse here and a verse there, and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies — and my life has been full of external tragedies — and if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of Bhagavad-Gita."
— Mahatma Gandhi

This is a challenging and important exploration of the differences between the mystic teachings of Jesus and the early Christians, and what most Christians believe today.

"Revelations of Christ helps us rediscover the original meaning and majesty of the teachings of Jesus Christ, with a clarity and simplicity that transcends theological nitpicking. In a world seemingly intent on sacrificing itself on the altar of religious extremism, this timeless, unifying message is urgently needed."
— Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

There is deep symbolic meaning behind the abundance of sometimes confusing, even self-contradictory images of Hindu myths, fables, Gods, and Goddesses. Great sages of ancient times used these symbols to convey revelations of the highest order. Hinduism, alone among all the religions of the world, holds up the ideal of complete spiritual liberation as the destiny of all beings. No one else has written about Hinduism with the clarity that Swami Kriyananda brings to the subject, a clarity he gained from his Indian guru, Paramhansa Yogananda. This book, and study course, is a revelation not only to Westerners, but also to those raised in the Hindu tradition.
