Accommodating women ma relative formula not updating when copying
I was resentfully conscious of not being able to walk or express myself freely.
Prayerful surges arose within me as I realized my bodily impotence.
I was born in the last decade of the nineteenth century, and passed my first eight years at Gorakhpur.
This was my birthplace in the United Provinces of northeastern India. I, Mukunda Lal Ghosh,3 was the second son and the fourth child.
He had chosen as his place of earthly abode the holy city of Puri, whither multitudes of pious Hindus, representative of every province of India, come daily on pilgrimage to the famed Temple of Jagannath, “Lord of the World.” It was at Puri that Sri Yukteswar closed his mortal eyes, in 1936, to the scenes of this transitory state of being and passed on, knowing that his incarnation had been carried to a triumphant completion. My thanks are due also to Miss Ruth Zahn for preparation of the index, to Mr. Richard Wright for permission to use extracts from his Indian travel diary, and to Dr. He was one of the great masters who are India’s sole remaining wealth.
I am glad, indeed, to be able to record this testimony to the high character and holiness of Sri Yukteswar. Emerging in every generation, they have bulwarked their land against the fate of Babylon and Egypt.
These early triumphs, usually forgotten quickly, are yet a natural basis of self-confidence. Many yogis are known to have retained their self-consciousness without interruption by the dramatic transition to and from “life” and “death.” If man be solely a body, its loss indeed places the final period to identity.This electronic manuscript has been prepared in an effort to match the layout of the original 1946 edition in every respect.Any typographical errors in the original have been intentionally preserved.But if prophets down the millenniums spake with truth, man is essentially of incorporeal nature.The persistent core of human egoity is only temporarily allied with sense perception.
These glimpses of the past, by some dimensionless link, also afforded me a glimpse of the future.
