A NUN’S SCHEDULE

A yogini (female yogi),

a monastic at the organization

… created by Paramahansa Yogananda to spread Kriya, was asked about her schedule.  I don’t have notes, so this is her recital from memory:

She gets up at four to meditate.  She joins the other monastics at seven for meditation which ends with prayer for the world and for those who have asked.  She then has breakfast, then work starts at eight.  At twelve they gather for a repeat of the group meditation and prayer followed by lunch, then back to work at one.  At five they exercise for an hour, then they have their group meditation and prayer.  She usually skips the evening meal in favor of meditation, which lasts until about midnight.
While I was dependent on memory for her remarks above, I remember well her last sentence:
“I love the weekends because then I can meditate as much as I want.”

SATAN AND THE NUN

She was asked if Satan can take form in this realm,

… and she answered in the affirmative, saying that she had had a needed experience which proved it to her.

This is the story she told:

Many of the people who came to her for help suffered from horrible fears, and she had never been afraid, so the experience was part of her training as a counselor.

She was on her meditation seat when suddenly there was an entity behind her and a stench “like dead rats.” And — scared?  She made it very clear that now she had a very good understanding of fear.

That was the end of her story.  But someone asked her what happened next.  She replied that she simply said, “You don’t exist,” and that it was immediately as if windows had opened and a fresh spring breeze filled the room expelling all signs of negativity.

This is the same nun, a disciple of a Kriya Yogi, who was asked about her daily schedule:  https://otherearsothertongues.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/a-nuns-schedule/
