On more than 420 pages, you will discover the story of the greatest spiritual master of the 20th century, through which you will learn about the ancient science of yoga and meditation.
It is very rare that a prophet of the greatness of Paramhansa Yogananda writes an account of his life experiences in his own hand. His childhood discoveries, his visits to saints and Indian masters, his years of study in his teacher’s ashram, and the long-hidden teaching of self-realization, all became accessible to the Western reader through his writings. Followers of various spiritual paths have recognized Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Despite all its depth, the book is full of gentle humor, lively stories and practical common sense.
This is no ordinary book, but a spiritual treasure. For all seekers of truth, reading her hope-filled message is the beginning of a great adventure.
Paramhansa Yogananda was the first Indian yoga master whose mission was to live and teach in the West. In 1920, when he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his spiritual tour, his listeners filled America’s largest halls.
His start was truly impressive, and his lasting impact even greater. First published in the original in 1946, this book helped spark and inspire a spiritual revolution in the West.
In the book, Yogananda clearly explains the subtle laws of life that lie behind both the ordinary events of everyday life and the extraordinary events that we call miracles. His unusual life story thus becomes a source with the help of which we can discover the secrets of human existence.
The value of this book is greatly enhanced by the fact that it is one of the few books on the wise men of India written in English. It was not written by a journalist or some foreigner, but by someone of their race and learning, so it is a book about yogis written by a Yogi.
This extraordinary document of his life reveals the depth of the Hindu mind and heart and the spiritual richness of India. It is an eyewitness account of the extraordinary life and power of modern Hindu saints, so the book has both time and timeless value.
Autobiography of a Yogi is a modern spiritual classic that has been translated into more than 20 languages and has changed the lives of millions of spiritual followers worldwide.
Yogananda’s vivid words transported me to his encounters with spiritual giants. At the same time, some crumbs from the richly covered spiritual table also fell on me. This grace taught and healed me on all levels. I invite all of you who are hungry for spiritual knowledge to join this mystical, healing journey with Yogananda.
