The Yoga of Jesus

Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels

Paramahansa Yogananda






In this remarkable book, Paramahansa Yogananda reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this universal science of God-realization to his closest disciples.


Compiled from the author’s highly praised two-volume work, The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You, this insightful and compact book transcends the centuries of dogma and misunderstanding that have obscured the original teachings of Jesus, showing that he taught a unifying path by which seekers of all faiths can enter the kingdom of God.


Topics include:


• The lost years of Jesus in India
• The ancient science of meditation: how to become a Christ
• The true meaning of baptism
• How the principles and methods of yoga parallel the teachings of the greatest Christian saints and mystics




“The writings of Paramahansa Yogananda have long been appreciated by practitioner and mystic alike. The Self-Realization Fellowship continues to make available these important syntheses of Eastern meditative yogic teachings and the more penetrating aspects of the life and sermons, parables, and lessons of Christ...

“The latter are often lost in didactic recitation over the centuries, but the work of Yogananda illuminates much of their likely original mystery and meaning with new perspective. This little work would revive the most jaded who know the history of institutionalized religion. Questions such as ‘Who am I?’ or ‘Why am I here?’ are rarely directly addressed by dogma on baptism, sin, and heaven and hell...

“This sweet treatise is ecumenical in nature and full of insight as it reminds us we can always be intoxicated with the divinely wondrous. The use of daily meditation will keep the seeker ‘in the zone’ irrespective of any given stated religious preference.”
