In this remarkable new book, Paramahansa Yogananda provides a revelatory introduction to the hidden yoga of the Gospels. A selection of material from his highly acclaimed two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ (Self-Realization Fellowship, 2004), this concise book is designed as both a stand-alone work, and as an introduction to that larger, comprehensive commentary on the Gospels. Yogananda, who is widely known 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 is a unifying path by which seekers of all faiths and traditions can enter the kingdom of God. Topics include: The lost years of Jesus in India / The true meaning of baptism / The correlation between to be born again and karma and reincarnation.
