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 gurus referred to on this page, are Paramahansa Yogananda (d. 1952), founder of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), his guru, Yukteswar, Lahiri Mahasaya, and his guru, called Babaji. They are known for kriya-yoga, which at bottom is a publicly well known, simple pranayama method termed ujjayi. There are books that describe it.
Yogananda started the Self-Realization Fellowship, SRF, and later admitted that starting it was a great blunder, to render him gently. And I for my part was once a member of SRF, and got awfully disappointed. Why? Look through the Yogananda-related pages on-site and you may find out.
The essential kriya technique is explained here. It is public knowledge outside SRF.
How many page visits have there been on "Yogananda pages" on the site so far? There are no comprehensive figures for the first 11 years, only one random count by the host, NVG. However since November 15, 2006 Google Analytics has been applied.
1. Intertwined and related pages are kept out in this SRF related survey -
3. Pages that have been visited less that ca. 3,500 times between 15 Nov 2006 into 17 Feb 2015 are not included
Counts supplied by Google Analytics from 15 Nov 2006 into 17 Feb 2015 - show there were slightly less than 12,8 million page views during those 8 years or so.
Here, then, are Google Analytics counts for the most visited Yogananda related pages so far. A few complications: During the period some pages have got changed titles and/or changed addresses. A few pages have been removed too, or content has been moved to some other page. Many pages have been revised, and some extensively.
Yearly visits to the SRF-related pages in all: A very rough estimate: 35,000 page visits a year.
