Easter is almost upon us. There is much symbolism that comes with Easter whether you are Christian or not. At the very least it is a celebration of renewal as we move out of nature’s winter hibernation into the rich pranic (life force) explosion of springtime. As yogis, we acknowledge the truth of Christ’s resurrection and we rejoice in springtime’s green bounty, but we also embrace the deeper meaning of it all- that we ourselves are extension of Divine Mother’s natural world, we are filled with the very same pranic life force AND that we can learn to direct that energy so that we too can experience what Christ really came to share with us: that we are all sons and daughters of the Divine and through the Christ Consciousness can realize our oneness once again.

“It was of that Infinite Consciousness, replete with the love and bliss of God, that Saint John spoke when he said: “As many as received him (the Christ Consciousness), to them gave he power to become the sons of God.” Thus according to Jesus’ own teaching as recorded by his most highly advanced apostle, John, all souls who become united with Christ Consciousness by intuitive Self-realization, are rightly called sons of God.”
—Paramhansa Yogananda

Let’s rejoice then not only as we celebrate the promise and truth of Easter itself, but in the daily renewal through these amazing techniques of inner communion brought by the great masters of Kriya Yoga.
