A New View of Swami Sri Yukteswar
We know a lot about Sri Yukteswar’s personality in his final incarnation on earth, but what was he like in past lives? Was he, perhaps, gentler and more approachable? And how might that knowledge affect how we attune with him today?
Paramhansa Yogananda said that he had been William the Conqueror in a past life, and that Sri Yukteswar had been William’s great counselor and ally, Archbishop Lanfranc.
In Blessed Lanfranc: The Past Life of Swami Sri Yukteswar, Guru of Paramhansa Yogananda, Richard Salva highlights scores of fascinating similarities (and important differences) between these two famous incarnations of a great spiritual master.
Through historical evidence and personal experiences, this book resurrects Sri Yukteswar’s image from one that can be daunting, to another much more kindly to every seeker.
