Easter and the Life of Christ, According to Yogananda

April 14 - April 16

Easter and the Life of Christ, According to Yogananda
with Brahmachari Jemal and Dharana,
 14-16 April 2017

Saints frequently live their lives so as to set examples of right behavior for all mankind; even more so with avatars. Join us this weekend as we study and learn from the life, teachings, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, one of the five great avatars of our path.

The Resurrection gives not only the comforting reassurance that heaven does exist, but that love and joy are, in the end, more powerful than hatred. Thus, and very fittingly, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection together dramatize the two essential conditions for knowing God: willingness to face for His sake any test that comes; and faith to accept it with love and courage, firm in the knowledge that all things pass, whereas God’s love is ours forever. — Swami Kriyananda.
