July 25: Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji Smriti Divas

In bestowing Kriya initiation on his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya, Babaji said, "The Kriya Yoga that I am giving to the world through you in this nineteenth century is a revival of the same science that Krishna gave millenniums ago to Arjuna; and that was later known to Patanjali and Christ, and to St. John, St. Paul, and other disciples."

- Mahavatar Babaji (as quoted in Autobiography of a Yogi)

"After a silence, Babaji added, 'Repeat to each of your disciples this majestic promise from the Bhagavad-Gita: Swalpamapyasya dharmasya trayate mahato bhayat.' ["Even a little practice of this dharma (religious rite or righteous action) will save you from great fear (mahato bhayat) the colossal sufferings inherent in the repeated cycles of birth and death.”]

– Babaji talking to Sri Sri Lahiri Mahasaya (as quoted in the Autobiography of a Yogi)
