"Just recently I came across a magazine advertisement that makes claims to a meditation technique that parallels Sri Yoganandas Kriya Yoga technique. It is said that this technique is an improved technique over Sri Yoganandas and brings about self realization much quicker to the one who practices it."
This is your opinion-
"I tell you truly, apart from some very practical and minor differences, the Solar Logos Technique and the Kriya of SRF ARE NOT DIFFERENT - both involve the taking of the cosmic breath, a practice so ancient and with so many ramifications that no single way can be said to be the best. Do you understand?"
Andre, your opinion seems much more rational and honest than the claim that Norms is improved and superior (quicker) to the one practising it.
