If Jesus Were Preaching Today

Category: Christianism

Yoganandaby Paramhansa Yogananda, from East-West Magazine, Sept-Oct 1926

This article holds even more truth in nowadays America. So here you are ...

If Jesus were preaching today to an American audience, his message would not be, "Sell all ye have and give to the poor; Take no heed for the morrow, what ye shall eat, what ye shall put on." These and other beautiful sayings of Jesus could not be strictly applied in the West today.

These teachings were applicable to the East two thousand years ago, where climatic and social factors made it possible to live much more simply than is generally possible today. Then, a little labor would suffice to gain the necessities of life. Warm climate simplified the problem of clothing and housing.

Gayatri Mantra

Category: Hinduism

The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest known mantra. It originates from the Rig-Veda, a sacred text of India dating back almost 5,000 years.
The mantra produces a pure and rhythmical vibration which saturates the consciousness with peace and calm that enhances creativity and intuition.

A wonderful interpretation of the mantra is performed by Deva Premal and Miten.

Spiritual experience

Category: All religions

There are things in life that you have to do yourself. There is no other way. Reading the best book about swimming or having the best swimmer tell you about it, will not make you a swimmer. You have to get wet. You’ll eventually get good at it. You may need a coach. You may need information about how to do it better. Life may throw you in the water and then you must swim or … dye without knowing how to do it.

Spiritual experience is the same.
These pages are for those ones who want to know what others experienced before.
Call them Budha, Jesus, Mahomed, Krishna, it is most likely they all had spiritual experiences and the desire to share them with others.

Organized (institutionalized) religion is not what this is about. This is for the rest of us who do not need intermediaries between us and the divine.

There are many ways to get there. Many dogmas. Many dharmas. Still, God is only one. Men with his ego made him many, gave him different names, and fought to impose one over the other.

A common denominator for all the religions is the practice of “thinking of God”. Some call it meditation. And this is what I will try to share with you. If you are an atheist, meditation can still help you calm you mind, improve you concentration and intuition. After all you may replace the name of God with “Nature”, “Universe”. All the same.

Jesus

Category: Christianism

I watched recently this Internet underground movie : Zeitgeist . Interesting. The first part is about Jesus. Let me rephrase that: it is about similarities between the Christian core beliefs and previous religions. The striking resemblance is between the story of Egyptian god Horus and Jesus. Born on December 25th, the third day after the winter solstice for Egyptians, from a virgin, was killed and resurrected.

Sure enough this is not an made up story or conspiracy to deceive you and me into becoming atheists. The Egyptian Horus' story was carved in stone thousands of years befor Jesus' time. There is deception though at the level of the organized religion. Jesus was institutionalized and used for worldly petty advantages of those in charge. Was Jesus a real person? Did he exist? It doesn't matter. What he simbolizes is more important. His story is an ideal that insipired many genuine believers. These believers hold Jesus in their hearts: devine is a personal experience. The very same experience is shared among all the religions. This is eventually the key to a better world.

There are three things which the superior man guards against. In youth...lust. When he is strong...quarrelsomeness. When he is old...covetousness.
