Swami Satyananda Giri walked gently on the Earth while he was here; yet his footprints remain deeply etched in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Beauty of Scriptural Wisdom

Since ancient times scriptural wisdom has been the polestar of humankind. The message of the scriptures is universal; not meant for one particular race or nation, or even subject to space and time.

Scriptural verses are self-revealing and illuminating, each one like a multifaceted crystal, shimmering with beauty when held to the sun. However, just as a treasure is often hidden, so, too, is the inner meaning of these gems of Truth; thus, the scriptures are often misinterpreted and misunderstood by the general population.

Those who know and understand these truths are the realized saints and sages. They are the sun that reveals the true beauty of the crystal. Within the pages of this book, 'The Beauty of Scriptural Wisdom', we are given the opportunity to explore the profound inner revelations of the great yogi and spiritual master Paramahamsa Hariharananda and share his deep insight into the hidden truth within the scriptures.

Body's Dance, The Soul's Play

We see the puppets dance, but often forget that the string puller orchestrates the movements. It is the body’s dance we see, but the soul is at play within. Casual observers often ignore this truth and consider the body as the ultimate manifestation of reality. Such gross misunderstanding is the cause of all suffering. A spiritual seeker through the step-by-step teaching and gradual unveiling from a divine guide, realizes that an individual is not the body, but the soul free from all boundaries and one with the eternal Creator, God. This is the path towards real freedom from all suffering.

Dancing with Death

What is death? Few in this world can answer with authority. Starting in childhood we consider death a terror, a fearful and foreboding sword that can sever us from all we love. Is it possible that our assumptions are wrong? Perhaps death is our friend, not our enemy. Instead of hiding or running from death, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda explains how we can gracefully dance with death. With incomparable insight, the God-realized master helps us see that both birth and death are joyful celebrations, and that death is not an end, just a footstep on the ultimate journey. Undoubtedly, Dancing with Death will empower us to take that step fearlessly.

“In this dance of life and death we all should learn how to dance to bring joy to both living and dying.”

Dimensions of Kriya Yoga

Among all the different spiritual practices, the most ancient and effective one is the science of Kriya Yoga. The ancient scriptures like the Vedas, Puranas, Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, and other classical spiritual texts sing the glory of Kriya Yoga. It is a very simple, effective, non-sectarian, and dynamic meditation technique, which is also the essence of all religions.

The essence of Kriya Yoga is nothing but loving one’s own breath as the power of the Divine and loving all living beings who breathe. Breath is life and the door to emotional turmoil or peace and love. It is why the masters emphasized the path of yoga and meditation as the means to have mastery over breath.
Kriya Yoga leads to an expansion of the heart and emancipation of life, which in turn beautifies one’s own life and opens the door to peace in one’s personal, family, and social life. Undoubtedly, the modern world needs it due to its effectiveness.

Paramahamsa Hariharananda’s teachings are a timeless treasure and a source of inspiration for sincere seekers. His simple and humble lifestyle and easy accessibility kindled the light of love and compassion in the hearts of many. Some of his practical spiritual teachings are compiled in the Dimensions of Kriya Yoga, which contains fifteen topics on Kriya Yoga. His teachings are both direct and heart touching.

Divine Motherhood

The word 'mother' is not just said with the lips, it is also said with the heart. The mother was our first link to a strange and unfamiliar world, and a constant source of tender care and compassion. No wonder that blessed word evokes such a sense of comfort and love in the heart of the listener. But where did the mother get her angelis qualities, and what is this mysterious concept known as motherhood? Is it simply a label bestowed on a woman who nurtures and raises children? Or is there more to this notion than meets the eye? Divine Motherhood is an enlightening and fascinating exploration into the multi-faceted, multi-dimensional concept of the divinity of motherhood.

Paramahamsa Prajnanananda approaches this subject with the unparalleled sensitivity and reverence of one who intimately knows the mother's most profound secrets. Although the divinity of motherhood has been virtually ignored in the West for centuries, the yogis of India have long understood Her significance. Under Paramahamsa Prajnanananda's loving direction, we quickly discover that to see the Mother in the outer world is not enough, we must also find the Mother within.

Humble Submission: Reflections on the Guru Paduka Stotram

No bond is more enduring, no love more everlasting, than the bond between the guru and the disciple. Under the guru’s omniscient guidance, a disciple travels swiftly and safely on the path of inner illumination. The “Guru Paduka Stotram” is a poignant and heartfelt hymn by Swami Bharati Krishna Tirtha, the former Shankaracharya of Puri and the sannyasa guru of the renowned Kriya Yoga master Paramahamsa Hariharananda. Within the pages of this book, Paramahamsa Hariharanandaji’s worthy disciple and successor, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, discusses this hymn of adoration dedicated to the guru. The words of this hymn are captivating and inspiring, as it beautifully describes the role of the guru–preceptor in the lives of spiritual seekers. Indeed, the role of the guru in the life of a disciple is unparalleled. The master becomes both mother and father to a disciple, caretaker of his or her soul, so it is said that one without a guru is an orphan. To a disciple, nothing is more sacred than the master, and nothing is more precious than to humbly sit at the master’s feet; indeed, even the sandals that grace the guru’s feet are deemed holy. This commentary eloquently describes how the devotional practice of guru paduka, worshipping the sandals of the guru, is a beautiful way to strengthen one’s love and cultivate humility, two keystones for spiritual growth.

Mystical Torah: A Yogi's Perspective

Throughout the ages, countless millions have read and followed the teachings of the Torah. It is considered to be the word of God. The Torah influenced and inspired the three major Abrahamic religions that developed in the Middle East — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Most notable among its teachings are the Ten Commandments, revealed to Moses by God eons ago, yet still considered the moral code for many today. One can only imagine the impact the Torah has had on the world. In the glimmering annals of sacred world scriptures, the Torah stands as significant. One can safely surmise that its long-lasting influence has been powerful.

As with all sacred texts, the Torah is often understood at only one level by the masses, when its words are taken literally. When describing the Torah, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda has said, “The Torah is a treasure trove of wisdom, but one must know how to extract its riches.” The Torah is a deep, vast ocean of Truth, meant to be dived into, not just admired from the shore. In The Mystical Torah:
A Yogi’s Perspective, we are given a glimpse of the hidden treasures found in the Torah’s depths. With remarkable insight and clarity, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda’s commentary breathes life into this ancient text, revealing its deep inner meaning, understood by only a few. The master takes us beyond the man-made boundaries of this most hallowed text so we can discover that its stories and teachings are beautiful representations of our own sacred journeys back to divinity.

Ritambhara: The Philosophy of Living in Truth

Spiritual practice is an inward journey. A fathomless mine of spiritual wealth lies within the hearts of human beings. Those who worship Truth value what is within and what is without. The endeavor to reconcile the Spirit within and the matter without is a seeker’s perennial effort. Ingrained impressions are the greatest impediment to spiritual progress. Mankind is drawn into a dilemma believing that prana (life force) is the only ingredient of eternal creation. Matter and prana are two products of atma (consciousness absolute). The perception of non-Self is the only human sin. It hides Truth from us. Life after life, through the ages, we live in the world of the dead, deprived of eternal joy and beautiful Truth.

Ritambhara (The Philosophy of Living in Truth) by Acharya Bijoy Krishna is the harvest of the deepest spiritual practice. This book is a must for seekers of Truth. Using the logic of science, Acharya has delved deep and ripped open the mystery that shrouds Truth. Ritambhara is the fundamental science of spirituality. Truth is realized not by dogma or bigotry, but by logic and a scientific approach. “The Oneness of existence” is the conclusion in the Upanishads. By the science of centripetal and centrifugal evolution, the Oneness enjoys His divine play.

Seek God Alone

Shri Adi Shankara's time on Earth was brief, but his contribution to the world was immeasurable. A poet, philosopher, and reformer of India's age-old monastic order, he composed many of India's most renowned spiritual treasures. Among his most acclaimed Vedantic works, the Bhaja Govindam stands alone in its ability to rouse the reader from the illusory state of ordinary human consciousness. For this reason, it has also been called moha mudgara,'the hammer that crushes human delusion.” That its origin was nothing less than pure, divine compassion is undeniable. In the Bhaja Govindam, Shri Adi Shankara cuts through to the heart of the human dilemma. Reminding us that God is the only unchanging principle of permanent bliss and happiness, he implores us, “Love God, love God, love God, O fool!”

Spirit of Religions

What is our conception of religion in these modern times? When looking back through history, or thinking about the current situation, people sometimes quickly come to the conclusion that there is no need for religion. Every religion has made a great contribution to human civilization and creativity, enriching both the arts and culture, and above all, human life in its infinite aspects. A proper understanding of religious values and principles, as well as their practical application, can improve human life.

Often people do not get the chance to understand the true spirit of the various religions. An open mind, love in the heart, as well as inner experience are needed to gain this understanding.

Paramahamsa Hariharananda was a visionary and a great soul who loved all religions equally. He was free of religious dogma and fanatical ideas. His method of teaching was unique, and his views were broad and inclusive, and touched the heart. As a mystic, he was able to enrich the lives of countless people, irrespective of their religious backgrounds, who loved him as their own prophet or holy person.

This compilation, presenting the major religions of the world and their key principles, aims to offer the layperson an appreciation of their underlying unity, and lead to an enlightened and universal perspective. Unity in diversity is the beauty of humanity. We can weave this fabric of unity with the threads of love and understanding.
