Autobiography of a Yogi

[225] Thus John (Elijah), sent "before the coming . . . of the Lord," was born
slightly earlier to serve as a herald for Christ. An angel appeared to Zacharias the
father to testify that his coming son John would be no other than Elijah (Elias).

The autobiography of Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952) details his search for a guru, during which he encountered many spiritual leaders and world-renowned scientists. When it was published in 1946 it was the first introduction of many westerners to yoga and meditation. The famous opera singer Amelita Galli-Curci said about the book: "Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information-much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency-come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years."

Author Dev Prana considers himself a Muslim on Fridays, a Jew on Saturdays, a Christian on Sundays, and a Buddhist on Mondays. Regardless of the faith he explores on any given day, each and every day he tries to be a walking embodiment of love, peace, and kindness. He is a student of religion, but it was not always this way. Twenty years ago, as he sought peace through study, he ended up tumbling over life's purpose. Spiritual Quest of a Baby Yogi is one seeker's search for truth amidst the many religions of the modern world and his eventual realization that all religions lead to one Father of the Universe. No matter the book Quran or Bible and no matter the figure Buddha or Jesus Christ all spiritual striving focuses on the similar foundations of unconditional love, nonviolence, and inner peace. As human beings, it is important we make an honest attempt to seek God in order to achieve enlightenment. We are different races with different beliefs, but we share this earth as one. Together, we can fill it with peace and love, but we must first make a spiritual connection with the higher power. It is time to become devout students of spirituality in order to make this world a better place.

Tension in the Tank meets us where we are on a faith journey that includes doubt and pain. Here is a voice that speaks to the beauty and value of interfaith understanding and liberal social values while digging deep into the heart of Christian mysticism. If we are living a spirituality that matters, it will affect the way we treat ourselves and the way we treat each other. Tension in the Tank is about faith that is relevant, secure, and ever-evolving. It is a guidebook for building meaningful relationships with Spirit, self, and each other. Radically open to possibility and wonder, Tension in the Tank offers the opportunity and the challenge to live our faith in such a way that the walls between us come down and we become pursuers and enactors of universal justice.

In ancient times, the Gnostics sought for salvation through personal, experiential knowledge of the Divine. Their methods of self-reliance and their sublime knowledge profoundly impacted society, such that the dominant powers felt threatened and the tradition was forced to disappear from public view. Now, after centuries of obscurity, the Gnostics have re-emerged, still carrying their profound message of Gnosis: knowledge of self and the Divine. In a simple and elegant way, Samael Aun Weor explains the basic methodology for people in today's world to begin to approach the greater mysteries of the Gnostics. In this basic and practical guide, Samael Aun Weor offers a breadth of exercises guiding the reader to discover within themselves a wealth of insight and understanding. Gnosis, after all, is Greek for knowledge, and the seeker is told, "Know thyself, and thou shalt know the universe and its Gods." "A great author deduced that the human being needs eight important things in life: health and the conservation of life, nourishment, sleep, money and the things money can buy, life in the beyond, sexual satisfaction, the well-being of his children, and a sense of proper importance. We synthesize these eight things into three: 1. Health 2. Money 3. Love "If you really want to acquire these three things, you should study and practice everything that this course teaches you. We will show you the path of success." - Samael Aun Weor Includes the lecture "How to Make Light Within" and the pamphlet "Marriage, Divorce, and Tantra." Topics include: An Exercise to Control Your Anger; The Power of Thought; Mental Force; Concentration of the Mind; The Law of Karma; Favorable Circumstances; The Descent of Cosmic Vibration; Prana; The Names of the Tattvas; Properties of the Tattvas; Money; Clairvoyance; Alcoholism; Meditation and Intoxication; Osmotherapy; Mental Relaxation; Concentration; Meditation; Contemplation; The Universal Mind; Imagination and Will; Mental Action; Mental Epidemics; Mental Hygiene; Vegetarian Diet; Self-observation; Chatter; "I'sa in the Five Centers; Matrimony, Divorce, and Tantra; and more.
