    “Many religious traditions emphasize surrender, which seems rather passive. Is that true?” From the concept of passive vs. active surrender, the discussion ranges to willpower, free will, if we can see our own spiritual progress, and the effect that being a vegetarian has on our consciousness.

    Ask Me About Truth

Questions of whether or not we have free will and whether our lives are pre-destined have for centuries kept philosophers awake at  night. What is the truth? Swami Kriyananda shares it as it was presented by his guru, Paramhansa Yogananda.
Questions include:
  • A lot of people wonder what their purpose in life is. How does one discover his destiny?
  • You mentioned reincarnation. Does one have to believe in reincarnation?
  • What is the point of it all?
  • Was meeting Yogananda, your Guru, pre-determined?
  • How much free will do we have?
  • What is the role of belief?
