Overview

At once a riveting account of an extraordinary life and a remarkably accessible introduction to a little-known spiritual science, Yogananda's Autobiography is something of a publishing phenomenon.

When it first appeared in print in 1946, Newsweek called it "fascinating". The New York Times hailed it as a "rare account". Continuously in print for over fifty years, the Autobiography, remains a seminal work in the field of Eastern religion, and still appears on best-seller lists in relevant marketing categories.

An amazing book. Very inspirational. I'm a procrastinator. Regarding yoga/meditation, my approach for the last 6 or 7 years has been: I'll start next month. If 'Autobiography' doesn't light that fire under me, nothing will. I've actually reached out to the organization and requested some home lessons to start. If you're not totally into yoga, that's fine. Neither was/am I, but the book even reads like a novel quite often. The story, in itself, is fun.

I greatly enjoyed this book. It blends the life story of a great man who lived during a very interesting era, with valuable insight into the spiritual realm generally and yoga specifically. Yogananda does not try to convince the skeptic. He simply and humbly presents his story.

The book looks deeper into the soul that connects with the invisible, undestroyable power that drives the cycle of life and death.

I was deeply effected in a positive way upon my first reading of Yogananda's life in the Autobiography of a Yogi. It took me to a deeper level of understanding and motivated me to a more serious and better informed spiritual search. There is a lot of thought provoking data here for most students of comparative religion. Yogananda opens up a revelation of fresh and valid spritiual concepts that answered many of my long lived querys. The most recent editions are the most accurate, as the author later added the 49th chapter and made important changes with each new printing. He appointed and personally trained 2 editors-in-chiefs to continue this process after his passing. Their work is very much in tune with the process which he himself began. And very much appreciated. From my research into his other writings, the editions with the orange covers are clearly representing the real Paramanhansa Yogananda. This book will change your life! I know it changed mine.

Boring...

Yogananda has the personality of a politician: capable of projecting great warmth to sway others to his point of view. Nevertheless, it is odd for the autobiography of a parmamahansa to contain so many stories of authority figures acceding to the author's "superior" person.
