Rejuvenation by Paramhansa Yogananda

Questions and Answers: Rejuvenation

Inner Culture, March 1939

Question: How can I rejuvenate myself?–T.E.

Answer: There is no effect in your body without a cause. If you know the cause, you can remove the effect. Rejuvenation means to live fully and to prolong youth to the end of your days. Some people have good bodies to start with, while others have always been sickly. This is due to past karma, or action.

You must know how to rejuvenate the body not only through proper diet, but through electric energy, by developing will power. You can bring energy into the body by will power. Each one of you can rejuvenate yourself. When your body becomes recharged from the Infinite Source, then you will learn to smile from your soul. You can’t smile with a headache or a broken back.

Diet gives partial rejuvenation, but how to tap the energy from God is the point. A time comes in your life when, no matter what you eat, nothing helps you. You grow old and nothing can stop it. Why not learn some of the energizing methods of India? You cannot rejuvenate yourself by diet alone. There is always an inner and an outer method of rejuvenation. When a battery is dead, if you put distilled water in it, that doesn’t help. The energy must be there to convert the water into energy. It is the same with the body. There comes a time when outer aids–food, air, and oxygen–will not help the body. The inner source of energy from God is then necessary.

Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Everything you eat is vibration. The air that you breathe is vibration. When you are in tune with God, you can subsist on very little food.

Behind your body wave is the vast ocean of God; behind your soul is the wisdom of God; behind your mind is the great intelligence of God; and tuning yourself in with Him, you will know that you are the child of God. Nothing shall ever destroy you. India has specialized methods of rejuvenation of body, mind, and soul. Learn from India’s masters the scientific technique of inner rejuvenation.
