Whispers from Eternity 1929
by
Swami Yogananda*
1929

The prayers in this book serve to bring God closer, by describing the feelings which directly arise from actual God-contact. God is expressed here as something definite and tangible. The Cosmic Idol is the grand conception of the Infinite and Invisible made finite, tangible and visible. Nature, man, mind, and every visible object are all taken as materials to build a colossal Divine Idol, on which we can easily concentrate.

Followers of all religions can drink from this fountain of universal prayers. These prayers are an answer to the modern scientific mind, seeking God intelligently. This book gives us a great variety of prayers, which enables one to choose that prayer most suited and helpful to his particular need.

Amelita Galli-Curci circa 1909"Pass not by, with hurried intellectual reading, the mines of realization hidden beneath the soil of words in this sacred book. But, as the Swami says, daily and repeatedly dig deep into them with the pickaxe of your attentive, reverential and meditative study, when you will find the priceless gem of self-realization."
--Amelita Galli-Curci
Noted coloratura soprano and student of Yogananda
, from the foreword

LOVERS OF GOD, those who seek him earnestly and sincerely, will find their most intimate longings and inexpressible yearnings articulated in the mystical pages of Yogananda's  Whispers from Eternity.

Start reading actual photographed pages.

 * "Swami" was Yogananda's monastic title prior to 1935. In that year his guru, Sri Yukteswar, bestowed on him the further monastic title "Paramhansa," meaning "supreme swan." "Paramhansa" is the highest spiritual title in the Hindu religion.





Tributes from the Press

Los Angeles Times
"Whispers From Eternity, a book of prayers and poems …a strength seldom found in the honey-sweet of the Orientals, permeates almost every page of Yogananda’s new book, exceeding in vigor even the verses of Tagore."

New York Sun
"The Swami's style in Whispers From Eternity is musical and pleasing. For depth of feeling and beauty of expression his poems have been compared to those of Rabindranath Tagore."

The Occult Review, London, England
"In these universal prayers and poems we are taught to pray to God by demanding as His children instead of begging as outcasts.... Altogether there are two hundred and fifteen prayers in this book, and they seem fitted to every possible occasion, one might almost say every mood of the soul. Many of them are extremely beautiful expression, and all as regards the thoughts and mode of are deeply spiritual ...we have such beautiful outbursts as: 'Forget me not, though I forget Thee. Remember me, though I remember Thee not.' And prayer number ten we feel constrained to quote in full:

‘O Father, when I was blind I found not a door which led to Thee, but now that Thou hast opened my eyes, I find Thee everywhere; through the hearts of flowers, through the voice of friendship, through sweet remembrance of all lovely experiences. Every gust of my prayer opens an unentered door in the vast temple of Thy presence.'

This book should fill a long-felt want . . . and be the means of bringing definite spiritual realization to those who daily follow its instruction.
