About the cover:

This is a watercolor I did in December 1953, of a devotee aspiring to merge into the spiritual eye. Paramhansa Yogananda explained that the golden outer ring of the spiritual eye vibrates with the astral universe; the blue field within the ring, with the causal universe and the Christ Consciousness; and the five-pointed star, with cosmic consciousness, or God the Father beyond all vibratory creation.

Joy to You!
