Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission was to live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls in America to hear him speak. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This book, first published in 1946, helped launch and continues to inspire, a spiritual revolution in the West.
Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda's stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humour, lively stories, and practical common sense. This is a verbatim reprinting of the original edition, now also including previously unreleased bonus materials. This is the only available edition that contains:
The original, unedited text, as written by Yogananda himself, free from posthumous changes introduced by others.
An appendix containing the final chapter, written five years after this edition was first published, presented free from all changes made after Yogananda’s death.
An all-new foreword and afterword, written by Swami Kriyananda, one of Yogananda’s best-known direct disciples.
What Others Are Saying
"This renewed contact with the Yogisphere, its mental superiority to material reality, and its spiritual discipline was very instructive for me, and I am grateful to you for granting me some insight into this fascinating world."
–Thomas Mann, Nobel Prize winner
"Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information—much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency—come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years."
–Amelita Galli-Curci, opera singer and direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda
