's message, "Re: Paramhansaji's early writings" on 17:22
Priscilla asked me to post her reply to the above posting. She wrote me:
"I am wondeering if you could send that board the portion I wrote about Yoganandaji and Dhiranandaji, and my feeling of the Gurus of our Kriya Lineage at the end of my e-mail...this may be a cut and paste process which I do not know how to do. Also could you send them our book flyer on Dhiranandaji and Nerode. It might go a long way to promoting kinder feelings about Kriyabans. Please let me know if you will do this. Blessings, Priscilla"
I am overwhelmed as few people know of Amrita and certainly fewer those who have some hint of Dhiranandaji's relationship and genius in our Kriya Lineage. The Kriya of Yoganandaji and Dhiranandaji was only taught in the very beginning one-on-one. Kriya was truly a guru-disciple
relationship between Teacher and disciple, never an organization...there was never any intent in the early days of that kind of structure, only the teachings, first and foremost. Dhiranandaji was gone by the time SRF was founded, so I am assuming that this type of teaching only persisted through Yogananda and Sri Nerode by the time SRF came into being.... My collection involving these two men only goes to the time of Yoganandaji and Dhiranandaji from 1916 to 1929, expressly....
Yoganandaji called Dhiranandaji, his boyhood friend from school, "the spiritual brain", so that gives you some idea of the high estimation that Yoganandaji had for Dhiranandaji, even though life situations and events led them in different directions. One must not equate the moment of change between these two powerful masters with the singleness of Divine Purpose that bonded these Enlightened souls for Eternity. And let me clearly say that I feel bonded with our Lineage and it hurts my heart to single out any one of these Great Ones. In Silence I feel each one's love and my surrender to Their service. They are ALL MY GURUS.We are all playing special roles to perfect special Divine Tasks. There is Only One. Sending you well wishes. In the Light of the Great Ones, Priscilla
I don't how to post the book flyer she mentioned, but I will try. Hope it works.
