    Description

    Autobiography Of A Yogi is one of the most well-known works on yoga and meditation, and provides a detailed look into Indian spirituality through the narration of Paramahamsa Yogananda.


    Summary Of The Book

    Autobiography Of A Yogi by Paramahamsa Yogananda is not just his life’s history, but an account of his spiritual journey and his trysts with people who inspired and influenced his life.


    The author’s spiritual quest started early in life, as he was always curious about what lay beyond mere bodily existence. His interest in spirituality and his pursuits down this path introduced him to a number of Indian saints and gurus, and even famous international personalities, the details of which he has put down quite candidly in this book.


    In this text, Paramahamsa Yogananda has written about one such guru, Lahiri Mahasaya, in detail. He has also written about his quest to find his own guru, which culminated in his meeting Sri Yukteshwar, who, in turn, was himself a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya. Yogananda later spent many years in the ashram of his guru, and was trained in Yoga and spiritual knowledge. He spent years mastering a branch of Yoga called Kriya Yoga. Yogananda later taught this practice to the western world.


    He explains his relationship with his guru, and his experiences at the hermitage in detail. Many chapters in the book are devoted to explaining the phenomenon of miracles that are recorded in all regions, across the world. He also attempts to explain the underlying science behind these events. Yogananda later moved to the United States of  America (USA) and he lived there, teaching yoga and meditation to the people there.


    In the book Autobiography of a Yogi, the author also recounts his interesting encounters with renowned people like Mahatma Gandhi, Luther Burbank, Rabindranath Tagore, Therese Neumann, Jagadish Chandra Bose, Sir C.V. Raman, and Ramana Maharishi. The book is an absorbing read, and it is written in his unique and candid style.

    This is who you are

    The first time I read this book, I could not go beyond 4 pages. It felt so bloody dry. Then some years later I picked it up and finished it within days!

    If feel that books like this come into your life when they want to and not the other way round. Each time I have read it, I get something else for my life.

    Its a book that doesnt tell you what the people in the book have done, but its a short collection of stories to tell each and everyone of us about all that we are capable of.

    Very great book by Yogananda

    Hi,
    This book was introduced to me by one of my faculties in my college, He has given me the book and said "It is the end of your troubles and sufferings". I was shocked at that time, and read the book. Really it is a great book who have been searching for the TRUTH.
    At the end of the book, we will find one card which we can send to YSS ashram, Ranchi if we are intested to join the YSS path, We will get the lessons and techniques of meditation.

    Read it and spread it.

    High Level English

    Book is good but English of the book is of very high level. So go for it if you are beginner or at medium level because in that case you have to search every fifth word of line in dictionary.
