From the renowned author of the best selling spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, comes a revelatory exposition on the hidden yoga of the Gospels - a selection of material from Paramahansa Yogananda's critically acclaimed two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ (Self-Realization Fellowship, 2004) designed to serve as an introduction to that larger, comprehensive commentary on the Gospels. In this luminous volume that explores the Yoga teachings of Jesus Christ, Yogananda makes clear that Jesus not only knew the principles of Yoga, but taught this universal science of God-realization to his disciples.

In this book, Yogananda explores the role of Jesus as yogi and avatar (divine incarnation), and he affirms that at the core of Jesus' teachings is the message that all souls who through Yoga meditation and right living become united with Christ Consciousness will enter the kingdom of God.

About the Author

Hailed as "the father of Yoga in the West", Paramahansa Yogananda is regarded as one of the great spiritual figures of our time. Born in northern India, he came to the United States in 1920, where for more than 30 years he taught the ancient science of Kriya Yoga meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living. That same year he founded Self-Realization Fellowship, to disseminate his writings and teachings worldwide. Through his best-selling classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, and his numerous other books, he has introduced millions throughout the world to the spiritual principles of yoga meditation and the universal truths underlying all world religions.
