This book remains one of the world's most acclaimed spiritual classics.
First published in December of 1946 and revised by the author before his passing in 1952 to include extensive additional material, Paramahansa Yogananda’s life story has touched the hearts and minds of millions of readers around the globe. It has served as an ambassador for India’s ancient science of Yoga, introducing hundreds of thousands of Westerners to the methods for attaining God-realisation.
Alive with all the love, warmth, and joy that characterise Paramahansaji, this masterwork of religious literature provides an intimate account of his encounters with modern-day saints and illumined masters of India, and explains with scientific clarity the subtle but definite laws by which yogis perform miracles and attain self-mastery. It is an absorbing account of a singular search for Truth that encourages and inspires all who read its pages.
