Introduction

Rays of the One Light

Weekly Commentaries on the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita
by Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters)



The chapters in this book, called “Weeks,” were written to be read every week at the Sunday morning services at the Ananda churches of Self-Realization. They can also be read, of course, at any other time, and by individuals as well as by groups. They are universal, not sectarian, in their teaching, and are meant to be both instructive and inspiring for people of every, or of no, faith.

An attempt has been made to show the underlying unity between the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita, particularly, but also by implication the essential thread of unity that runs through all the great Scriptures.

A visitor once asked Paramhansa Yogananda, in my presence, “Since you have called your church a 'church of all religions,' why do you concentrate primarily on the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita?”

”That was the wish of Babaji, the guru of my guru’s guru,” Yogananda replied. It is enough to demonstrate the ocean’s depth by sounding it at one or two points. Its depth elsewhere can then be assumed.
