Yes I love Yogananda a lot and yes as in Yoga. He also met Ramana Mahashi and said that if he would have spent just half an hour more with him he would never have left. I think Ramana was the probably the greatest sage/saint of the 20th Century.

I believe Jesus was talking of the ego too. For if you can dissolve the ego you can be reborn as a God conscious being.

But transcending it is very difficult, because of our conditioning ,and needs upmost vigilence. Analysing your thoughts is very important I believe. As well as trying to treat and love all beings as your brother and sister, very tricky...
