Visits to Some Yogananda-related Pages

Yogananda: "Jesus said that as long as a devotee is conscious of . . . delusive things, such as mountains and holy cities, . . . he has not yet attained the ultimate state (1979:128)." Where did Jesus say that?

The guru referred to on this page, is the swami-monk Yogananda (1893–1952). He founded Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) and got it registered as a church in California in one of the last days in March 1935. He also confessed in a hand-written letter that ◦starting it was a great blunder. He spread his own variant of kriya-yoga. Its core method is the simple pranayama method termed ujjayi. There are books that describe it. The essential kriya technique is explained here. It is public knowledge.

How many page visits have there been on "Yogananda pages" on the site so far?

It could be a bit less than 30,000 page visits a year, in average - or upwards of it when Yogananda-related pages without "Yogananda" in the title is counted in. At any rate, between 15 Nov 2006 and 1 Jan 2018 there were 305,000 visits to pages with "Yogananda" in the title.

In such a long haul:

  • Yogananda on Visions, Dreams, and Illusions
  • Yogananda on Sex. Quotations
  • Kriya Yoga of Satyananda and Yogananda Compared

  • "The Wretch Arjuna" Reborn as Yogananda?
  • Yogananda Matters
  • Kriya Yoga and Yogananda Teachings
  • Yogananda's Rubaiyat Commentary, The Wine of the Mystic
  • Yogananda Literature Reviews

A few more might be recommended for those who are on the track to check if the Yogananda facade is fit:

  • Yogananda's World University
  • Yogananda Prophesies and Gullibility
  • Yogananda Seeing Ghosts

  • Yogananda on Fun, Love, Joy and the Devil - Quotations
  • Hatless in Snowstorms

Mind that "most popular" is not always like "best". The Bell curve suggests the same phenomenon too in its way, as do findings of Dr Abraham Maslow in Motivation and Personality, 3rd ed, chap. 11.
