Autobiography of a Yogi. Paramhansa Yogananda, 1946, notes on what sparked my interest:

Words for the word:

*Aum (om): Vedas

Amin: Koran

Hum: Tibetan Buddhism

Amen: Christians “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God….”


Einstein: the velocity of light dominates the whole. The Theory of Relativity is the only constant. …Einstein has banished from the cosmos every fixed reality except that of light.

266. The masters who are able to materialize and dematerialize their bodies or any other object, and to move with the velocity of light, and to utilize the creative light-rays in bringing into instant visibility any physical manifestation, have fulfilled the necessary Einstein an condition: their mass is infinite.


269 Just as the motion picture images appear to be real, but are only combinations of light and shade, so is the universal variety a delusive seeming [sic].


His guru Sri Yukteswar died and assumed a new body and explained: 400 “From the cosmic atoms I created an entirely new body, exactly like [my previous one] I am in truth resurrected—not on earth but on an astral planet….there are many astral planets, teeming with astral beings. The inhabitants use astral planes, or masses of light, to travel from one planet to another, faster than electricity and radioactive energies.”

The ordinary astral universe—not the subtler astral heaven of Hiranyaloka—is peopled with millions of astral beings who have come, more or less recently, from the earth, and also with myriads of fairies, mermaids, fishes, animals, goblins, gnomes, demigods and spirits, all residing on different astral planets in accordance with karmic qualifications.


Commenting on his visit to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi: Gandhi had an appendectomy without anesthetics, chatting cheerfully with his disciples. His family was Jain, who revere ahimsa as the root virtue. Hence, vegetarianism. He also was a celibate. He said about his wife, “She moves me as no other woman in the world can. …the feeling of an indissoluble bond is there,” Gandhi said I believe like every Hindu in God and His oneness, in rebirth and salvation.

It takes a fairly strenuous course of training to attain a mental state of nonviolence. It is a disciplined life, like the life of a soldier.  …a man who applies the laws of love with scientific precision can work greater wonders ….The law of love is a far greater science than any modern science.

I would wait, if need be for ages, rather than seek the freedom of my country through bloody means.

Jesus, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: but I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
