Description
 
by Swami Sri Yukteswar

This extraordinary treatise explores parallel passages from the Bible and the Hindu scriptures to reveal the essential unity of all religions. Swami Sri Yukteswar, the revered guru of Paramahansa Yogananda, outlines the universal path that every human being must travel to enlightenment. He also explains the vast recurring cycles of civilization (yugas), affording a profound understanding of history and the ever-changing panorama of turbulent world events.
 
“Prophets of all lands and ages have succeeded in their God-quest,” writes Paramahansa Yogananda in the foreword to The Holy Science. “Entering a state of true illumination, nirbikalpa samadhi, these saints have realized the Supreme Reality behind all names and forms. Their wisdom and spiri­tual counsel have become the scriptures of the world. These, although outwardly differing by reason of the variegated cloaks of words, are all expressions — some open and clear, others hidden or symbolic — of the same basic truths of Spirit.
 
“Swami Sri Yukteswar...was eminently fitted to discern the underlying unity....Placing the holy texts on the spotless table of his mind, he was able to dissect them with the scalpel of intuitive reasoning, and to separate interpolations and wrong interpretations of scholars from the truths as originally given by the prophets.”
 
The Holy Science demonstrates, by explanation of parallel passages from the Hindu and Christian scriptures, the essen­tial unity of the great religious teachings of East and West. With incomparable wisdom and discernment, Sri Yukteswar explains the universal evolution of consciousness, energy, and matter — the entire spectrum of experience that we call “life.”
 
The author provides an authoritative foundation for a purely holistic view of man and the universe — and shows how that view supports the principles of natural living in body, mind, and soul. Rooted in the deepest truths of religion, it yet offers practical advice for fulfillment in everyday living, by delineating the physical, mental, moral, and spiritual principles that govern the expansion of human consciousness.
