PUBLISHER’S NOTEParamhansa Yogananda was born on January 5, 1893 in Gorakhpur innortheastern India near the Himalaya Mountains. From the earliest years of hislife, he longed to know God, to taste the thirst-quenching waters of Spirit.His search for the Infinite led him to Sri Yukteswar, his Preceptor. Under the guidance of this God-realized teacher, he attained Supreme Realization andwas given the revered title of Paramhansa
by his Preceptor in 1935.Paramhansa Yogananda
later brought the special Techniques of Concentrationand Meditation to the Western World, including Kriya Yoga which is thescientific method to accelerate the devotee’s spiritual unfoldment.In addition to bringing the Techniques of Concentration and Meditation tothe West, Paramhansaji’s great spiritual mission included imparting hisintuitively-perceived interpretations of the Christian Bible. Throughout the text of 
The Second Coming of Christ 
, Paramhansa Yogananda uses capitalization toplace emphasis on a specific truth to aid the reader. In the instances wherethere is redundancy of material, he includes it because it relates and clarifiesthe new material introduced.
Paramhansa – literally, param, highest; hansa, swan. The hansa is represented in scripturallore as the vehicle of Brahma, Supreme Spirit; as the symbol of discrimination, the white hansaswan is thought of as able to separate the true soma nectar from a mixture of milk and water.
Yogananda means “Bliss (ananda) through divine union (yoga)”.
