Autobiography of a Yogi (with CD)
Autobiography of a Yogi is one of the 20th century’s best-loved spiritual classics. Paramahansa Yogananda’s remarkable life story takes you on an unforgettable exploration of the world of saints and yogis, science and miracles, death and resurrection. With wisdom and endearing wit, he illuminates the deepest secrets of life and the universe – opening our hearts and minds to the joy, beauty, and unlimited spiritual potentials that exist in the lives of every human being. This complete edition – available exclusively from Self-Realization Fellowship, the organization founded by the author – is the only one that incorporates all of his wishes for the final text including extensive material he added after the original 1946 edition and a final chapter on the closing years of his life. Includes 80 quality archival photographs.
In his foreword, Walter Evans-Wentz, the co-editor and translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead observes; “The value of Yogananda’s autobiography is greatly enhanced by the fact that it is one of the few books in English about the wise men of India which has been written, not by a journalist or foreigner, but by one of their own race and training – in short, a book about yogis by a yogi. As an eyewitness account of the extraordinary lives and powers of modern Hindu saints, the book has importance both timely and timeless. To its illustrious author, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing both in India and America, may every reader render due appreciation and gratitude. His unusual life-document is certainly one of the most revealing of the depths of the Hindu mind and heart, and of the spiritual wealth of India, ever to be published in the West.”
Includes bonus CD ‘The Voice of Paramahansa Yogananda’, featuring excerpts from the Self-Realization Fellowship Collector’s Series of rare recorded talks by Paramahansa Yogananda.
