Trilogy of Divine Love by Durga Mata

I just want to let you know that this book, which gives dieep insights into the life and work of Yogananda in the West, can be downloaded here: (copy into your browser)

If on that site you search for "Yogananda" you find plenty of material concerning Guruji.

I Learned Kriya Yoga from three teachers from the Yogananda Lineage (Goswami Kriyananda of Chicago, Roy Davis School and Goswami Sunyata Sarawati). All three personally met/knew and or where taught by Yogananda.

By Paramahansa Yogananda
(1893 - 1952)

Vanished the veils of light and shade,
Lifted every vapor of sorrow,
Sailed away all dawns of fleeting joy,
Gone the dim sensory mirage.
Love, hate, health, disease, life, death,
Perished these false shadows on the screen of duality.
Waves of laughter, scyllas of sarcasm, melancholic whirlpools,
Melting in the vast sea of bliss.
The storm of maya stilled
By magic wand of intuition deep.
The universe, forgotten dream, subconsciously lurks,
Ready to invade my newly wakened memory divine.
I live without the cosmic shadow,
But it is not, bereft of me;
As the sea exists without the waves,
But they breathe not without the sea.
Dreams, wakings, states of deep turiya sleep,
Present, past, future, no more for me,
But ever-present, all-flowing I, I, everywhere.
Planets, stars, stardust, earth,
Volcanic bursts of doomsday cataclysms,
Creation's molding furnace,
Glaciers of silent x-rays, burning electron floods,
Thoughts of all men, past, present, to come,
Every blade of grass, myself, mankind,
Each particle of universal dust,
Anger, greed, good, bad, salvation, lust,
I swallowed, transmuted all
Into a vast ocean of blood of my own one Being!
Smoldering joy, oft-puffed by meditation
Blinding my tearful eyes,
Burst into immortal flames of bliss,
Consumed my tears, my frame, my all.
Thou art I, I am Thou,
Knowing, Knower, Known, as One!
Tranquilled, unbroken thrill, eternally living, ever new peace!
Enjoyable beyond imagination of expectancy, samadhi bliss!
Not a mental chloroform
Or unconscious state without wilful return,
Samadhi but extends my conscious realm
Beyond the limits of the mortal frame
To farthest boundary of eternity
Where I, the Cosmic Sea,
Watch the little ego floating in me.
The sparrow, each grain of sand, fall not without my sight.
All space like an iceberg floats within my mental sea.
Colossal Container, I, of all things made.
By deeper, longer, thirsty, guru-given meditation
Comes this celestial samadhi
Mobile murmurs of atoms are heard,
The dark earth, mountains, vales, lo! molten liquid!
Flowing seas change into vapors of nebulae!
Aum blows upon the vapors, opening wondrously their veils,
Oceans stand revealed, shining electrons,
Till, at last sound of the cosmic drum,
Vanish the grosser lights into eternal rays
Of all-pervading bliss.
From joy I came, for joy I live, in sacred joy I melt.
Ocean of mind, I drink all creation's waves.
Four veils of solid, liquid, vapor, light,
Lift aright.
Myself, in everything, enters the Great Myself.
Gone forever, fitful, flickering shadows of mortal memory.
Spotless is my mental sky, below, ahead, and high above.
Eternity and I, one united ray.
A tiny bubble of laughter, I
Am become the Sea of Mirth Itself.

Learn Kriya Yoga techniques as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda taught in India and Western countries. Kriya Yoga gives results instantly.
My heart-felt pranamas to the lotus feet of Paramhansa YoganandaJi.

Om. I really appreciate you making available Durga Mata's books for download. Unfortunately i couldn't get it to work. Any suggestion? ...Swamiji
Comment by Swami Bodhichitananda Saraswati on November 22, 2010 at 3:01pm
Please remember that Yogiraj Lahiri Mahasaya never advertised himself as a Kriya Master. In fact most of his disciples didn't even know their neighbors were fellow disciples. It takes great humility to act as a proper channel of spiritual knowledge...

Hi Swami Bodhichitananda,
I know the problem. I am the creater of this group but can't log in as kashiraja, cause the system automatically logs me in with this name from the german site. No one could help me, I receive no response to my emails.

But if you want the book I can sent it to you via email-attachment. Just write to beprop(aatt)
