Second Coming of Christ

Wednesday, April 12, 7:30 - 9 pm in Bothell

Paramhansa Yogananda came to America in 1920 and described his life’s work as “to show the underlying unity between the teachings of Jesus Christ and of Mahavatar Krishna.”

He sometimes called his work “The Second Coming of Christ.” When asked why he emphasized the teachings of Jesus Christ and of Krishna he replied: “It was Babaji’s wish to do so.” Thus an aura of mystery surrounds the deeper connection between Yogananda and Jesus Christ.

Come explore with us the deeper aspects of this relationship.
