Paramahansa Yogananda

"With bleeding feet, I will come– If need be, a trillion times – So long as I know
One stray brother is left behind." - Paramahansa Yogananda


I want to ply my boat, many times, across the gulf-after-death,
and return to earth's shores from my home in Heaven.

I want to load my boat with those waiting, thirsty ones
who are left behind and carry them by the opal pool
of iridescent joyWhere my Father distributes His all-desire-quenching liquid peace.

Oh, I will come again and again! Crossing a million crags of suffering .
With bleeding feet, I will come –If need be, a trillion times–
so long as I know One stray brother is left behind.
I want Thee, O Lord, that I may give Thee to all.

Free me then, O God, from the bondage of the body. That I may show others how they can free themselves.
I want Thine everlasting bliss only that I may share it with others.
That I may show all my brothers the way to happiness, forever and forever in Thee."

Paramahansa Yogananda


The water is Wide

A ship there is and she sails the sea. She's laden deep as deep can be
But not so deep as the love I'm in. I know not if I sink or swim.

The water is wide I cannot swim ore. Neither have I, the wings to fly.
Give me a boat that can carry two and we both shall row my true love and I

Paramahansa Yogananda letter

Letter to Sri Durga Mata From Paramahansa Yogananda

June 24th, 1936 Bombay, c/o Am. Ex. Co.


Dear Durga,

I know not when I have been pleased with anyone next to Saint Lynn. Among my men disciples Mr. Lynn has the first seat in Heaven and in my heart and among my lady disciples you will have the first seat with Sister in heaven and in my consciousness.

Your behavior and work has pleased me most and how could an uneducated one like you become so educated in everything.

I have been the same way in life, read very little-but written much. Are you flattered – no – but all this I say what comes from within for the most wonderful cooperation you have given.

"Meditate and dedicate yourself to God!" And behave best before yourself within and before all,

– Paramahansa Yogananda

Her love and loyality for her "Kids" (Those whom she counselled and helped personally) both during her lifetime and after her transition is a testimony of that sweet sustained commitment to God and Guru in unbroken communion.

Truely an Exaulted Disciple dedicated as an illumined channel of the Masters will and intercession for us whenever we ask for help.

“This religion isn't a funeral procession.” Paramahansa Yogananda

Sri Durga Mata wrote down what Paramahansa Yogananda had told Rajarsi, "I am Om, everything is Om."

"I will come back into your body and in the consciousness of everybody."
