Swamiji said this when I spoke about the book and the people who asked
how they could get it...
'Transcendent Journey', the Autobiography of Swami Jnanananda Giri
may be had now only by Swamiji Himself when meeting him, as a prasad,
this too, at His own discretion. ~*~
Swamiji also said, "As a child I used to read the family Bible that had been in
our house for generations. It was over 200 yrs. old and was the first printing
in Europe in German. It weighed 15 kgs! It said that God first made the whole
creation of earth, plants, animals, etc. and then He made the Human beings.
When He made the Human Beings He put His own breath in them.
This astonished me very much. I asked my mother why God didn't put His
breath in the animals and everything else also, why only in the human beings?
My mother said, 'Because He knew that the Humans would forget it!'
We would forget that the breath is God's, that all have the same breath, and
that it is God's property."
