Very modern philosophy for such an ancient religion. Very fast read for first half. Alittle slower in the middle, but stick with it, extremely interesting man to read about. I enjoyed this book very much!

This book also reveals, for the first time to Westerners the lost science of Kriya Yoga (which means, "Divine Union"), which is a scientific technique to develop direct experience of God. Yogananda explains this technique, its history, and why it is so effective.I was so mesmerized by it that I had a hard time to put down the book until I had finished reading it. Since then I have reread it a few times. The book, you may say, touched my very soul. After reading the book, I signed up with Self-Realization Fellowship, Yogananda's Los Angeles based spiritual organization, to receive the weekly Lessons that the great saint had left for us before he left his body. What those lessons have done for me, there are no words to express. Whether you are religious or not, you will find this masterfully well-written work touch you in ways that you've not dreamed of. Yogananda orchestrates chapters about the astral realms, great scientists, poets, saints (in India as well as in the West), masters, Gandhi, and others which are both moving and inspirational. highly recommended read.

Wonderfully written. This book is the original without all the changes made in other editions years after the author's passing. It's thrilling!

Complete fabrication. Nothing enlightening here, just a bunch of fairy tales.

This is a fascinating supposedly true story of the man who brought yoga to the U.S. Although recently I watched the film "Kumare" on Netflix and so now I wonder . . . and also I am a Christian and believe we are to look only to God for everything, but this is a good read.
