3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting teaching
I adore any of the philosophical teachings that come out of the better Indian teachers. I preferred Auto graphs of a Yogi though and i'd recommend that book before reading this one.

This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
This book is quality, not quantity. Reveals the underlying unity of Hinduism and Christianity; the 'solution manual' to the scriptures of East&West. How truthful the fact that so few recognize its value and actually follow the procedure recommended therein; considering we only recently entered Dwapara Yuga (atomic age), predominated by indifference to the mysteries of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex, 12 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
This book is small in size but the information is Mammoth, I have read this book countless times but the information is so complex it is hard to come away with all the knowledge given. This book must be read more than one time for the reader to come away with all it's enlightening information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lead to by Spirit...., 9 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
This book has so much spiritual information that it can not be absorbed in one, two or many readings. When I was contacted by my spirit guides many years ago enlightening information was passed on to me, but I did not understand one very definate "word" which could have several meanings until I was guided to this book which explained exactly the meaning and to my knowledge does not exist in any other book I have read or researched. This is one of the reasons I hold this book in such high esteem. I would recommend that people wanting to understand information in it to first try ready "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda, who was taught by Sri Yuktswar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Condensed and profound Gem of a book, 19 Jan 2006
By 
M. B. Milnes "brian_milnes" (Cambridge, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
If you want to be immersed in some profound and remarkable spiritual insight from a Jnanavatar, then you have found the right book.
Yukteswarji was commissioned with writing about the underlying unity of Hindu & Christian scriptures, and does so in particular with reference to the Revelation of St John.
But you'll also be able to read about the corrected version of the Yugas and the Great Year, determined by the precession of the Equinoxes, as well as a casual reference the Sun's binary star (which scientists are currently attempting to discover).
It is well worth the small price, and you'll probably go back to it time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 28 Feb 2004
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
This book is excellent. Sri Yukteswar's writing style is very easy to read (I think I prefer it to Yogananda's) and he manages to explain a great deal of truth in a short space. A clear account of the similarities between Hindu and Christian scriptures, this book will be useful for any spiritual seeker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should you really want to know the mysterious nature of the universe and what lies behind it, 21 Aug 2011
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
If you want to understand the mysterious power behind the creation and existence of the universe and the mysteries of spirituality then this book comes next only to "The Bhagavad Gita" in its power. The title of this book "Kaivalya Darshanam" (Sanskrit) translated to English could also be inferred as "Complete Insight" or " Complete Vision" or "Total Insight" or "Total Vision", apart from its other very apt title of "The Holy Science".

5.0 out of 5 stars A spiritual Gem for any traveler on The Journey of Life, 24 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Holy Science (Hardcover)
For a readied spiritual practitioner, reading this book may lead to a direct experience of divine love within. A sacred book indeed, although I'm not acquianted with the astrology information in one chapter, the word Holy is only proper. Reflecting the Truth in both some biblical scriptures as well as other wisdom sources, the sacredness of the world is reflected as a uniting force, a Source to be found by many methods and in many sources. This is a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only read one book this year I recommend this one., 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Holy Science (Kindle Edition)
This book will not date, it is worth referring back to as a guide for living. It is inclusive, the reader does not feel berated for having been born or brought up outside of India with it's Gurus and Yogis.
The teachings apply to all civilised societies and the dignity and respect within the pages of this short book are truly inspirational.
