Dear Friends, I would like to give details of another indian master, Disciple of baba lahiri mahasaya, disciple of Himalayan guru Maha avatar babaji.Sri Yukteswar wasborn to a wealthy business man and his wife on May 10, 1855, in Serampore, India. He was given the name Priya Nath Karar.He was marriedand had a daughter. He was a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya. Priya Nath Kararbecame a Swami and received the name Sri Yukteswar Giri. He met Babaji, theguru of Lahiri Mahasaya, in 1894. Babaji told him that one day he wouldsend Sri Yukteswar a disciple who would share the teachings of yoga in theWest. This disciple turned out to be Paramhansa Yogananda, who is best knownfor his book, Autobiography of a Yogi.Babaji also asked Sri Yukteswar to write a book on the essential unity of theBible and Bhagavad Gita, the most well-known scripture in India. Sri Yukteswar titled this book The HolyScience.Sri Yukteswarfounded two hermitages, one of which was his family home given to him by hisfather as his inheritance. In the last year of his life, Sri Yukteswar turnedover all his properties to Paramhansa Yogananda, asking him to find someone tomaintain them.
