Question: Jesus, Would you speak a little bit about Paramahansa Yogananda?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
Concerning Paramahansa Yogananda, I am very happy about the opportunity to talk about this wonderful brother of mine. Paramahansa Yogananda is today an ascended master and a member of the ascended masters. He did not make his ascension right after he laid down his physical body, but took some time to complete certain tasks and initiations. Today, he is an ascended master, and people can indeed invoke the mantle of the ascended master Paramahansa Yogananda.
I can assure you that among all the people walking the surface of the earth, few have had a deeper understanding of the Christ consciousness than Paramahansa Yogananda. In many of his writings and lectures he gave an understanding of my true mission that I wish all Christian church leaders could have. If indeed those who claim to be my followers and have set themselves up as leaders of Christian churches had the same understanding of my true teachings as Paramahansa Yogananda, Christianity would quickly be transformed into a modern religion that could fulfill people’s spiritual needs for the next 2000 years.
Unfortunately, I don’t see any willingness among Christian church leaders to study the teachings of an Indian mystic, regardless of what he might have said about the Christ consciousness. In their sense that Christianity is the only true religion, they reject the possibility that anyone outside of their own church could have anything of value to say about me and my teachings. Obviously, that is also why they would reject my website.
The first spiritual book Kim found was indeed Autobiography of a Yogi, written by Paramahansa Yogananda. This was no coincidence. I knew Kim had been deeply wounded by the orthodox, idolized image of me. I therefore directed him to find this book, and as you will see from his story, reading the book did indeed start the healing process that led him to become my messenger for this website. I would therefore recommend that all spiritual seekers read that book and study other of Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings as they are directed from within.
