Hi Everyone,
Thank you for the continued prescence of this message board. I have been reading lots here but not participating much. I so appreciate this community.
I have a question about the astrological bangles Sri Yukeswar mentions in Autobiography of a Yogi. Does the ea school or anyone here have any experience on this? Are they recommended by Jeffrey or ea teachings?

Thank you,
Heather

Hi Heather, below are some different sites about the bangle that Yogananda wrote about in Autobiography of a Yogi. At least two of these three sites are dated back to 2008, so I'm sure pricing would be different today. I remember asking Jeffrey about them years ago, and he did support what Yogananda had said about them. Hope this info helps:

Hi Ari,
Thanks for your reply. I searched the mb and didn't get that thread, so thank you for that. I was hoping to hear about the three metal arm bangle that is still being made based on Sri Yukeswar's specifications rather than the crystals, although the crystals are also fascinating to me.  What I've read so far is the arm bangle is to aid in reducing harmful cosmic influences...my words, but probably someone could explain it more eloquently/specifically.  I am wondering if they are good for all individuals or if they are for specific circumstances.  The crystals seem pretty specific based on the nature of each one, and the wearer. Any how, thanks for the thread link, and congratulations on being part of the ea conference!
Blessings, Heather

Heather, in addition to the info I listed above, and Jeffrey's support of Master's teachings on the bangles, below is additional information from Yogananda himself. I've been working on editing the original message board, and I don't remember any indepth discussion about the bangles.

Astrological Bangles: Letter from Yogananda to Rajarsi Janakananda
From a letter written by Paramhansa Yogananda to his closest disciple, Rajarsi Janakananda:

"According to astrological laws to do away with all bad influences of planets, there is nothing better than a bangle. Each two bodies of the universe attract. When this adhesive power of the bodily cells becomes lax with the advance of age, the planetary pull becomes stronger, causing more laxity of cells, inviting disease and the mind to disturbance.

"The bangle and its combination of metal as fixed by the Rishis emanate electronic ray (unseen to human eyes) which counteracts all planetary vibrations. Just as a lightning rod is affixed to a house to absorb the falling thunder and lightning, so the bangle is a lightning rod to absorb the ferocity of bad planetary rays falling on the body, when disease attacks as bad karma.

"Besides, I heard Master say many times that satan creates in the mind of the bangle wearer the impulse to take the bangle off, so uninterruptedly he could punish them through the instrument of bad karma of past lives. I remember definite instances of cases who almost could not wear the bangle as the arm rotted under it.

"One person had to change the position of the bangle three or four times. He was cured of paralysis and some kind of fits. The bangle will also modify and lessen any wrong influence on business. Sometimes to take the bangle off when one needs to, even in that moment, it is also dangerous. I write this only to emphasize the laws of electronic vibrations which God created and the Rishis discovered to counteract the eveil planetary influence on the human body."http://www.astrological-bangles.com/bangles/html/b_book.html

More information is availabe in the Astrologlical Bangles Booklet by the Ananda member who makes them, and which you can read here: http://www.astrological-bangles.com/bangles/html/b_book.html  Hope this helps.
