I found another book that shows some parallels between two religions that I want to add to my to-read list. Just wondering if anyone else has already read it and what opinion you have about it.
It seems to compare parallel passages from the Bible and Bhagavad Gita in order to show the unity of all religions.
Sri Yukteswar writes:
The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved; and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures.
YEP! I read it & actually made a comment about it here;
It's a complicated book, i had to read it twice to fully understand it. Sri Yukteswar rocks though...he is THE MAN! Any book related to the SRF organization are amazing! I recommend every single one of them. My parents actually met at an SFR meditation seminar in CA in the 60's. I love how some Hindu swami's can break down their belief system mathematically. It's totally intriguing! If you REALLY want to be thrown for a loop, read Yogananda's translation on the bible. He talks about Jesus, his trips to India & who Jesus was in his past lives.

Watch this video, it breaks the ages down & quotes Sri Yukteswar quite a bit & compares his yuga theory to that of the Greeks, which is realy super cool! It's narrated by James Earl Jones too...a nice treat!
It's a google video, so it's safe to watch.
