Say something about yourself!
so i just said 3 for everything not to piss off buddha, vishnu and khrishna. even though the men are shameless pigs who gawked at my sweet wife and jerked off under there pants while she took a dip in the cold ganga river. she was fully clothed in a wet suit no less. Its always nice to be pleasant to an 8 armed blue guy with swords. Its only 90% of the men who have no respect for women and think all american girls are whores. I know the other 10% and they are wonderful people.
I listen to the book all the time. It helps me contemplate on life and all that it brings and how to deal with it. the simple yet wise and pure anecdotes of Paramahansa Yogananda resonate truth in me. there is so much knowledge and history in the book, you'd want to research further.
yes. when the author talks about Jesus and how misunderstood his teachings have been throughout the ages. Paramahansa Yogananda explains a different Jesus experience that I can relate to.
you'll need to listen to the book in quiet, reflective mind.
No, I have had many print versions over the years and they are both fantastic. Now that I own an audio version it just gives me more options to enjoy this timeless work. Ben Kingsley does a fantastic job.
This is a life changing book about deep love and spirtuality. Its not just about Hinduism but also Buddhism and Christianity. His Guru loves Jesus Christ and is able to explain his crucifixion and resurrection better than most.
The most memorable moments are the stories about the love and miracles of the Holy Spirit.
Ben Kinglsey does a great job on this.
I wish we had lectures from Paramahansa Yogananda to listen to as well.
This author presents some old school thinking. I am not in agreement with some of what the author has to say, for example spiritual realms and the like. There may be a better scientific explanation for the same phenomenon's described in this book. Additionally, I did not like the satire on the accent though others may enjoy it.
