vid on "My Guru - Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFCK7d0RyO4 . [page 475 - Yogananda quotes Sri Yukteswar as saying]: "My child" his voice rang out, vibrating into my very soul-firmament, "whenever you enter the door of nirbikalpa samadhi and call on me, I shall come to you in flesh and blood, even as today".
"With this celestial promise Sri Yukteswar vanished from my sight. A cloud-voice repeated in musical thunder: "Tell all! Whosoever knows by nirbikalpa realization that your earth is a dream of God can come to the finer dream-created planet of Hiranyaloka, and there find me resurrected in a body exactly like my earthly one. Yogananda, tell all!" . On page 473, Yogananda says "Angelic Guru," I said, "your body looks exactly as it did when last I wept over it in the Puri ashram.". [Sri Yukteswar replies]: "Oh, yes, my new body is a perfect copy of the old one. I materialize or dematerialize this form any time at will, much more frequently than I did while on earth. By quick dematerialization, I now travel instantly by lighy express from planet to planet or, indeed, from astral to causal or to physical cosmos." My divine guru smiled. "Though you move about so fast these days, I had no difficulty in finding you at Bombay". --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "Yifu" <yifuxero@...> wrote: > > Yogananda claims that his dead Guru Sri Yukteswar appeared to him in a > Resurrected, physically manifested body in 1936.: > http://www.crystalclarity.com/yogananda/chap43.php > ...[excerpts from Autobiography of a Yogi, Chapter 43]: > > Y explains: "As prophets are sent on earth to help men work out their > physical karma, so I have been directed by God to serve on an astral planet > as a savior.
