A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on fearlessness, faith, god, omnipresence, and self-realization

Fearlessness means faith in God: faith in his protection, His
justice, His wisdom, His mercy, His love, and His Omnipresence... To be
fit for Self-realization man must be fearless.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on jesus, krishna, buddha, and god-communion

Truth is One:
I have often said that if Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, and other true
emissaries of God came together, they would not quarrel, but would
drink from the same one cup of God-communion.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda

May the heads of all countries and races be
guided to understand that men of all nations are
physically and spiritually one: physically one, be-
cause we are the descendants of common parents
--- the symbolic Adam and Eve; and spiritually
one, because we are the immortal children of our
Father, bound by eternal links of brotherhood.
 
Let us pray in our hearts for a League of Souls
and a United World.  Though we may seem
divided by race, creed, color, class, and political
prejudices, still, as children of the one God we
are able in our souls to feel brotherhood and
world unity. May we work for the creation of a
United World in which every nation will be a
useful part, guided by God through man's enlightened conscience.

In our hearts we can all learn to be free from
hate and selfishness. Let us pray for harmony
among the nations, that they march hand in
hand through the gate of a fair new civilization.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda

All are waves on the same, one ocean, composed, as ocean water is, of the same substance: Spirit.  Some of the waves are higher then others.  Some waves don't even want to distance themselves from the ocean.  All waves, no matter how high, are in essence one and the same.  The difference between the Guru and the disciples, then, lies only in their respective closeness to the ocean: in how conscious each one is of his essential reality.  The greater the sense of ego, the taller the wave, and the greater, in consequence, the ignorance.  The greater one's awareness of the ocean as one's soul reality, the smaller the wave, and also the less his sense of having a separate individuality.

Remember this: When I am gone, only love can take my place. Be absorbed night and day in the love of God, and give that love to all.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on joy, god, meditation, seductive, ever-new, infinite, ingenuity, paramahansa yogananda, yogananda, and autobiography of a yogi

Ever-new Joy is God. He is inexhaustible; as you continue your meditations during the years, He will beguile you with an infinite ingenuity. Devotees like yourself who have found the way to God never dream of exchanging Him for any other happiness; He is seductive beyond thought of competition.
