Paramahansa Yogananda Quote: “A master bestows the divine experience of cosmic consciousness when his disciple, by meditation, has strengthened his mind to a degree where the vast vistas would not overwhelm him.

Paramahansa Yogananda Quote: “The rejuvenating effects of sleep are due to man’s temporary unawareness of body and breathing. The sleeping man becomes a yogi; each night he unconsciously performs the yogic rite of releasing himself from bodily identification, and of merging the life force with healing currents in the main brain region and in the six subdynamos of his spinal centres. Unknowingly, the sleeper is thus recharged by the cosmic energy that sustains all life.”

Paramahansa Yogananda Quote: “It is never a question of belief; the only scientific attitude one can take on any subject is whether it is true.

Paramahansa Yogananda Quote: “The body of the average man is like a fifty-watt lamp, which cannot accommodate the billion watts of power roused by an excessive practice of Kriya.

Paramahansa Yogananda Quote: “The body is a treacherous friend. Give it its due; no more.
