Life and Teachings
Examine what is said, not who speaks. (Arabian Proverb) It can be part of sobering up. Further: "A thought or physical act once performed does not cease to be, but remains . . . as an impression. These impressions create strong inner urges . . . that influence the intelligence." - Paramahansa Yogananda in The Yoga og Jesus, p. 45.
In 1920 the guru Paramahansa Yogananda set up Self-Realization Fellowship, SRF, in the U.S.A. Yogananda taught a special breathing and meditation regimen, kriya yoga, got a large following mainly in America, and, as he adapted, added inconsistencies to the kriya teachings. The fellowship spreads guru mishmash and seems to have moved sectwards.
