Does Satan Exist?
August 16, 2009

Sunday Service with Swami Kriyananda

Yogananda, quoted in The New Path, said, “I used to think Satan
was only a human invention, but now I know, and add my testimony to that of others who lived before me, that Satan is a reality.

“He is a universal, conscious force whose sole aim is
to keep all beings bound to the wheel of delusion.”

–Swami Kriyananda, Rays of the One Light
