Ask Me About Truth, Episode 46
Swami Kriyananda
May 13, 2014

"The teachings of Christ are really the same as any great master that ever lived," says Swami Kriyananda. Those who have realized God realize the same truths.

Jesus accepted the doctrine of reincarnation, as Swami Kriyananda explains. He also discusses the "lost years" of Jesus's life, when he is said to have visited India.

Questions include:

  • You grew up in the Anglican religion — how did you reconcile Yogananda's teachings of reincarnation with Christianity?
  • Why did Christians stop teaching the doctrine of reincarnation?
  • What was the purpose of Jesus's visit to India?
  • What would Jesus think of Christianity today?
