The autobiography of Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952) details his search for a guru, during which he encountered many spiritual leaders and world-renowned scientists. When it was published in 1946 it was the first introduction of many westerners to yoga and meditation. The famous opera singer Amelita Galli-Curci said about the book: "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."
The original text of Yogananda's classic introduction to Eastern mysticism.

Not the complete edition
There are chunks of paragraphs edited out of this edition. The edits do not take away from the content, however the reader misses out on some pearls of wisdom. The blog is such a good read I give it 4 stars, but I would have given 5 if the books description would have stated that his was an edited version.
