Re: hari9896 on the Masters & "the existence of the Personal God"

I only noticed your post today as I don't have a pc and only use the 
ones in internet shops. I don't know what else you've written.

Perhaps if you read Yogananda'a "Autobiography of a Yogi" and 
studied the philosophy behind his views you might find it 
illuminating. I remember reading in Prabhavananda's book on Hindu 
Philosophy (towards the end of the book) that man can become Brahman 
but he can never become Ishvara. Sorry I can't enlarge on it more 
now as I hope to get home early enough to see Dawkins explaining 
his "God Delusion" on TV although I might fall asleep watching it. 
Best of luck.
