The Science of Religion
An amplification of Paramahansa Yogananda's 1920 maiden speech in America, given at the International Congress of Religious Liberals in Boston. With penetrating logic, Yogananda reveals the spiritual yearning that lies behind all human striving. Fulfillment of that ultimate longing for transcendence, he explains, is attainable through a science as universal and practical as the sciences on which we rely for material knowledge and attainments.

    After this cursory reading, I am certain that the practical truths discussed within need further study on my part. It is a great explanation of what I have intuitively felt.

    A very intense examination of the influence of spirituality in modern science.

    This short manifesto could be applied and mankind would live enlightened like the great masters and saints (jesus, buddha, krishna). We can no longer live in an age of sectarianism or division. We need universal religion.

    A first good look at Hindu philosophies and perspectives. If I was forced to read this book I would probably be moaning its content, but since I am a spiritual speaker I was fascinated by the concepts in this little book.

    Not overly mystical, clear, concise thinking that can be applied to the modern world. A scientific and analytical way to think.

    Must read

    Only first part about religion and its meaning was extremely useful. Perspective broadening. Second half about how to achieve god seemed a little abstract. Couldn't grasp it properly.

    To the point, if that's a fair statement of a book concerning the issues of science, religion, and how they mesh.

    His views on the universality of religion were very interesting, but the end of the book ended up a bit like propaganda. Decent quick read though.
