"Behind the Scenes"

The Promise of Immortality

The True Teaching of the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita
by Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters)

This was the book at the other end of the bridge, of which the first end was Rays of the One Light and the bridge itself was Rays of the Same Light.

In The Promise of Immortality, I developed at length the seed thoughts I'd planted in the other two books, and wrote considerably more material besides. Everything in this book is based on the teachings and writings of Paramhansa Yogananda, as were the other two. In this book, however, I expanded what I'd read out of my own meditations on his teachings and writings.

What I've published so far can be considered a book in itself, but in fact it represents only the first half of the year, and the scripture passages I considered in the other two books for those six months. If time remains to me in this incarnation, I would like to write Volume Two, which will comprise the passages for the second half of the year.

Each of these books would, I think, fulfill a special need, though I might decide at that point to drop Rays of the Same Light altogether.
