Peace that passeth the understanding becomes possible when we are in communion with God
Reviewed in India on 29 July 2018
Paramahamsa Yogananda, makes it very clear, the more we are attuned to God the more peace we will feel despite our situations, circumstances. He mentions the peace that passeth our understanding is certainly possible. He also make it very clear, to enjoy this peace uninterruptedly, it is absolutely necessary to be in communion with God everyday. Then the peace we experience is the indication that we are in His presence.
There are many insipiring passages in this small booklet, where He gives us many practical ways to achieve inner peace. He insists, “Never let anyone rob you of your peace; and do not steal away the peace of others by your verbal misbehavior....” and “Keep a secret chamber of silence within yourself, where you will not let moods, trials, battles, or inharmony enter. Keep out all hatred, revengefulness, and desires. In this chamber of peace God will visit you.” Elsewhere He states, “The test of man’s wisdom is his equanimity. Little stones that are pelted into the lake of consciousness should not throw the whole lake into commotion” and “the best way to live is to take life as a cosmic game, with its inevitable contrasts of defeat and victory. Enjoy the challenges as you would in a sport, no matter whether at the moment you are victorious or vanquished.”
A book to be ready again and again and practiced till we experience the Peace that passeth the understanding.
