Do either Kriyananda or Yogananda, in writing, or speaking, about small spiritually centered communities, address whether large cities and other social and political structures are a necessary infrastructure for the small villiages to survive. Is there an expectation that a few of these can serve as "antibodies" toward the eventual more peaceful world, or will all need to be in villages? It seems that the belief in eventual, universal salvation is a necessary condition for "Ananda's" to work .
Yogananda spoke often, and forcefully, of future global events. A realized Master is able to see past, present and future more clearly than we are able to perceive current events.
He saw great upheavals, natural cataclysms, global economic depressions — the result of which would be hundreds of years of peace on earth. A necessary purification and pruning process that will help humanity on this planet to enter a higher age with an expanded consciousness.
