On this unprecedented masterwork of inspiration, Paramahansa Yogananda takes the reader on a profoundly enriching journey through the four Gospels. Verse by verse, he illumines the universal path to oneness with God taught by Jesus to his immediate disciples but obscured through centuries of misinterpretation: ” change into like Christ, resurrect the Eternal Christ within one’s self.”
Never before to be had in its entirety, this landmark work by one of the revered spiritual teachers of our time transcends divisive sectarianism to reveal a unifying harmony underlying all true religions. A groundbreaking synthesis of East and West, it imparts the life-transforming realization that each and every of us can experience for ourselves the promised Second Coming — awakening of the all-fulfilling Divine Consciousness latent within our souls.
Yogananda said, “In titling this work The Second Coming of Christ, It’s not that i am referring to a literal return of Jesus to earth. He came two thousand years ago and, after imparting a universal path to God’s kingdom, used to be crucified and resurrected; his reappearance to the masses now isn’t necessary for the fulfillment of his teachings. What is necessary is for the cosmic wisdom and divine perception of Jesus to speak again through each and every one’s own experience and understanding of the infinite Christ Consciousness that used to be incarnate in Jesus. With a purpose to be his true Second Coming.”
