  1. Well done! This quiz was great fun. Folks who haven’t read the latest Crystal Clarity books are really missing out.

  2. Hi, is there any proof Yogananda had said He was William. I do not think so, as if you check level of conciousness it is very high in case of Yogananda.

    1. Dear Friend,

      In answer to your question about Paramhansa Yogananda as William the Conqueror, I would refer you to the Clarity Magazine homepage. Look under the section on the right hand sidebar called “All-Time Favorites.” At the very bottom of that section you will find and article written by Swami Kriyananda entitled, “Paramhansa Yogananda as William the Conqueror.” This should clear up any doubts.

      Joy to you,
      Nayaswami Nakin

  3. Sir,
    Please Let us know about previous birth of Franklin D Roosevelt.
    Regards,
    Bishnu.

    1. Dear Bishnu,

      Paramhansa Yogananda never said who Franklin Roosevelt was in a previous lifetime. I hope this is helpful.

      Joy to you,
      Nayaswami Nakin
