Editorial Reviews

Columbia University Press
There has been nothing before, written in English or any other language, like this presentation of Yoga.
Noetic Sciences Review
Keeps the reader spellbound. . .A vicarious journey through the mystical path taken by Yogananda.
Newsweek
Fascinating. . . .ingenuously described in the lush style of the Orient.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The original text of Yogananda's classic introduction to Eastern mysticism.
Library Journal
The work is enduringly popular because it introduces millions of readers to Eastern spiritual thought. Yogananda's masterly storytelling epitomizes the Indian oral tradition with its wit, charm, and compassionate wisdom. The yogi begins by showing how his childhood experiences in turn-of-the-century India produced a spiritual youth in search of an enlightened teacher, continues with an account of his years of training in the hermitage of a revered master, and concludes with the highlights of a period, beginning in 1920, during which he lived and taught in America. Yogananda sensitively interprets not only his own spiritual evolution but also his relationship with elements of the West's spiritual tradition, such as the story of Adam and Eve, providing a penetrating look at the ultimate mysteries of human existence. Bibliographical footnotes, which would have interrupted Kingsley's magnificent narration, are thoughtfully included in an accompanying booklet. -- James Dudley, Copiague, New York
