The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels

In this remarkable book, Paramahansa Yogananda reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this universal science of God-realization to his closest disciples. Compiled from the author’s highly praised two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You, this insightful and compact book transcends the centuries of dogma and misunderstanding that have obscured the o

    This review is from: The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels (Paperback)

    This book captures Paramanhansa Yogananda’s spoken words and writings and puts them into clear focus in one volume on the much misunderstood teachings of Jesus. This new book “The Yoga Of Jesus” is a hundred years in the making. The editors and publishers do a great job of putting Yogananda’s thoughts in a logical order so that it reveals a much deeper message–one that shows the hidden yoga of the gospels.

    This book will awaken some people to new ideas while others may just have their inner truth reaffirmed. The book is a significant spiritual work and will remain a best seller (As does his classic “The Autobiography of a Yogi”) for decades if not centuries.

    There is even a chapter devoted to the missing years of Christ’s life, which were spent in India according to Yogananda. The references and footnotes help build strong support for what this book is revealing about the life and teachings of Jesus.

    The book is an eye opener for non-yogis and a blissful confirmation of truth from those who follow the teachings of Yogananda. This is one of his best books. I would suggest reading this book along with “The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You” – which blazed huge new spiritual roads just a few years ago.

    This book, as with many of Yogananda’s books, shows parallels between the teachings of all the great Christian saints, mystics and other enlightened founders of spiritual thought. This book should help unify and promote inter-faith understanding for those with open minds and hearts.

    This book is well worth adding to your spiritual library. It can be read in a full afternoon but it may take a lifetime or longer to full grasp all the truth that is within its pages. The book is best read slowly while allowing time to ponder and digest the meaning of what is read. There is so much wisdom and love within these pages. This book receives my highest possible personal recommendation. This is a MUST READ BOOK!

    This review is from: The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels (Paperback)

    This book is really great! I bought it to read to decide if I thought it was worth pursuing Yogananda’s Second Coming of Christ set, which is rather expensive. Once I read this book I had to order the set, and am ready to start reading that now. This book and Yogananda’s views are able to clear up some questions of the new testament which had never been clearly answered previously. It just really clears up a lot of murky areas.

    I would suggest that someone new to this topic do like I did. Read this book to see if you think the things he says make sense to you. If they do, and you believe he could be right, then move on to the other set to get a more thorough saturation. I still have not decided for sure, but after reading the Second Coming I’m sure I will have made up my mind. I will also say that years ago I had read many of PY’s works, and I have always found him to be a very good, decent person. Honesty and integrity of the highest caliber. (This last just in case you are not familiar with him.)

    This review is from: The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels (Paperback)

    I’ve often found myself confused by the Bible, and rarely have I really grasped the pertinence of its teachings to the dilemmas of our present society. Never before reading this book have I found the Gospels to be so interesting, so universal in scope, and so applicable to my daily concerns.

    I found this book (as well as the larger “the Second Coming of Christ”) to beautifully and engagingly present the truths of Jesus in great detail and specificity, as well as in terms of universality and Oneness.
