Where is the phrase “Banat banat ban jai” found in Autobiography of Yogi?

Nayaswami Pranaba

Nayaswami Pranaba

Ananda Village

Answer

Dear Craig,

This quote is one that Lahiri Mahasaya often used, and is recalled by his disciple, Swami Pranabananda, in chapter 27 of the Autobiography of a Yogi (page 246 in the original reprint of the 1946 edition, available from Crystal Clarity Publishers).

The quote, loosely translated, means: “Striving, striving, one day behold! The Divine Goal!”

In divine friendship,

Nayaswami Pranaba
