On This Day in the Life of Paramhansa Yogananda…

January 6



Yogananda began a weekly series of talks on KNX radio in Los Angeles.


Yogananda was the guest of honor at a banquet of the Moslem League in Los Angeles.


Yogananda told Durga Mata that he was Arjuna in a previous incarnation and that Rajarshi Janakananda was Nakula, one of the twin Pandava brothers.

The Past Lives of Paramhansa Yogananda

“Master revealed to us that he himself had been Krishna’s closest friend and disciple, Arjuna. (‘Prince of devotees,’ the Bhagavad Gita calls him.) We found it easy to believe that he had been that mighty warrior, for Master’s incredible will power, his innate gift for leadership, and his enormous physical strength (when he chose to exert it), all pointed to someone with the tendencies of a mighty, conquering hero.”

Excerpted from Paramhansa Yogananda as William the Conqueror by Swami Kriyananda.
