When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.
This audio edition, featuring Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley's masterful narration, contains the complete text of Paramahansa Yogananda's life story, an absorbing account of a singular search for Truth. Yogananda describes his experiences with modern-day saints and illuminated masters of India, and presents a definitive introduction to the whole science and philosophy of Yoga.
One of the most life changing books of all time....
It's the fad right now to read about every spiritual guru out there from every ideology and religion possible. Read this book from a legitimate guru who came to share his knowledge of the Divine with us. Yogananda was/is one of the sweetest sounding teachers I have ever heard or read and his experiences that he shares in this book are inspirational. It is a worthy read and could very well be life changing for you.
Buy they Ben Kingsley version. Much more enjoyable to listen to. An absolute joy! Om Gurudeva!!!
You will enjoy it enough to listen to this book multiple times!
