Yogananda, Assassination and Naivete
    #14069423 - 03/05/11 03:59 AM (10 years, 8 months ago)

As a young man I read 'The Autoboigraphy of a Yogi' and was enthralled. One story that I swallowed hook, line and sinker was when Yogananda was giving a lecture in a large hall in New York City. In the middle of the sermon, he came off the stage and walked down the aisle and stopped in front of a man who was allegedly hired to kill him. Yogananda said nothing, but just stared at the man with love and compassion. The would-be assassin trembled, broke down in tears, confessed and became a devotee.

Looking back, this type of a 'plant' is no different than Evangelical preachers who heal an 'unknown' audience member from a debilitating disease that they never had in the first place.

Need to believe = blindness.

That was a fun book at the time. Now it just seems like pure fantasy.
