Paramahansa Yogananda was the first great master of India to live in the West for an extended period. Sent by his guru, Sri Yukteswar, to America in 1920, he was to introduce tens of thousands of students to the science of yoga. Since its first publication in 1950, Autobiography of a Yogi has been translated into many languages round the world and has become an undisputed classic in its field. Paramahansa Yogananda's story is interwoven with scholarly reflections on the religious and scientific foundations of both Eastern and Western culture, and with descriptions of his meetings with such spiritual leaders as Mahatma Gandhi, Babaji, Therese Neumann and Rabinranath Tagore. A man who explored and taught about the most subtle mysteries of reality, Paramahansa Yogananda continues to inspire readers all over the world.
This is a very spiritual book, I enjoyed it! Would recommend it to anyone.

Paramahansa Yogananda has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. This book outlines the story of his incredible life. At a young age this man was possessed with the divine quest of realizing God within. He was guided there through the wisdom of his guru, Sri Yukteshwar (who wrote an amazing book linking the similarities of Hindu and Christian scripture - "The Holy Science), who foresaw the boy's important role in humanity and introduced him to the esoteric art of Kriya Yoga (as passed on through the Lahiri Mahasaya lineage).
This book is an absolute must-read for any spiritual aspirant. The events that take place in this book are nothing short of a miracle...a miracle that is very alive and well today, within us, waiting to be unleashed. Through reading these pages you gain a new-found respect for life and are filled with inspiration through the kind, wise words of this master.

A stunning re-collection on a truly evolved being. Pramahansa Yogananda tells us of his life in detail, at times with a wonderful cheeky humour, and at times with such passion and surrender to the Divine. A must read for anyone who is seeking answers on a spiritual level.
Set in India, Pramahansa takes us back in time to the teachings of Yoga that are thousands of years old that are relevant today, and gives insight into a culture rich in Spirituallity.
A book that must be read over and over again as something different "jumps out" every time it is read.
