Keys to Understanding Our Hidden Past, Emerging Energy Age, and Enlightened Future

The Yugas In-DepthSri Yukteswar, guru of Paramhansa Yogananda, presented a fascinating explanation of the rising and falling eras that our planet cycles through every 24,000 years – the cycle of the yugas. The breadth and sweep of the yugas encompasses all of history and the ancient past, providing a clear explanation for many anomalies such as the Great Pyramid, India’s Vedas and the 10,000 year old spiritual site of Gobekli Tepe. The yugas provide vital insight into our current Energy Age which is rapidly changing our world and world-view as well as bestowing greater awareness and new personal abilities on all mankind. The yugas also give us a glimpse of our enlightened future and vast untapped spiritual potential.

More About Course

The Yugas In-Depth Online Course

“Today we are on the brink of another major conceptual change – this time, not in the field of physics, but in the field of history and the development of civilization. Just as Einstein overturned conventional thinking due to the anomalous, but undeniable fact that the speed of light is constant, history and archaeology are similarly confronted with undeniable anomalies that are beginning to overturn conventional thinking about the course of man’s development.” — Joseph Selbie

Through the study of the Yuga Cycles, we not only learn more about the ancient cycles of time and our present age of energy, but more importantly, we learn how to cooperate with the changing times to bring about the greatest spiritual growth. Spiritual awakening is a gradual process of feeling a broader reality, one that extends far beyond the confines of our physical bodies. To see ourselves and the world around us as expressions of Divine Energy, we open a doorway to move through age-old habits that keep us bound to matter consciousness.
