A Message From Sam, the webmaster of this site
Posted on: May 26, 2005

Dear Visitor and Yogananda devotee,

Some 10 years ago I was introduced to Yogananda's teachings. I was so impressed that his teachings touched my heart that I decided to post a few of his quotes here on my website.
I did this so that people all over the world can read his writings and learn about his spirituality and the truth that he taught us. Not once did I entertain the thought of monetary rewards. As a convenience for others to buy his teachings, I added links to Yogananda's products from Amazon. I hesitated doing this as it may have seem as materialism in a spiritual site. Materialism and Spirituality, in my humble opinion, should not go hand in hand. That is why you will not find ads in this entire spirituality section of

It is with deep regret and sadness that I have to remove his few quotes that I had here. I have been contacted by SRF today and told that these quotes are not appropriate to have here without asking first for their permission. (I was also told to remove his picture)

While I can see their point of view, what I find truly sad is that, in my opinion, Yogananda's truth is being restricted when in should be out there for all to share. I ask myself, "What would Yogananda do?" Would he allow others to share his truth and spirituality, by putting a few brief quotes on the Internet, or not?

I was told that I can write to them (SRF) and ask specifically which quotes I want to put up, but only a few quotes. I may or may not bother to do this. I probably won't...

Once again, I'm sorry what has transpired but if there's one thing I would like to say to you is "Keep Yogananda's teachings close to your heart and mind. They are beautiful teachings that should be shared, in the best way we can without offending others..."
