The Science of Religion: The Eternal Message of Paramahansa Yogananda’s First Talk in America
Paramahansa Yogananda’s first talk in America was given 100 years ago, at a specific time and place — but its message is eternal. The talk summarized the message of his book The Science of Religion — a profoundly simple and concise exposition of the common goal of all true religions. As stated in that book: “It is a universal message, based not on dogmatic beliefs, but on direct insight into Reality, gained through the practice of ancient scientific techniques of meditation.” This opening class will explore the ongoing legacy of this message — and how we can implement it in our daily lives, doing our part to usher in a new, more spiritual age.
