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!

...taken bit by bit, this can be clarifying and life-changing. I am finding this book easy to read and full of things that cause me to think deeply.

In her memoir of her father, Margaret Salinger notes that had it not been for Autobiography of a Yogi, she would never have been born. Her father, J.D. Salinger, had already begun his reclusive lifestyle. He wanted to divorce himself from the duties of domesticity and family life in order to achieve a higher spiritual consciousness. However, Paramhansa Yogananda 's book revealed to him that -in his understanding - salvation can also come to those who live a family life yet still practice his science of Kriya Yoga. Autobiography of a Yogi details the stories of Hindu asetics, manifesting themselves in any space and any time they so choose; yogis healing the sick of infirmities and taking the burdens upon themselves; the ordinary man and his insistence on logic as the only tool possible for understanding the world around him, and being overcome by events which pass understanding. What is also fascinating about this book is that it details the wonder-workers of other faiths: a Muslim able to manifest any physical thing at will; a Catholic nun who does not eat and lives solely on the light of Christ, suffering the stigmata frequently in her German country hermitage; a Unitarian Universalist botanist who found God in the plants around him. In that way, this was a fun read.Yet, these varieties of religious experience are endemic of late 19th-century religious pluralism and its holdovers like Yogananda. While it was interesting to see these different quests for God, one thing that kept coming up throughout the text were these individuals who, through extensive intellectual or physical rigor, were coming closer to God. They were working really hard to reach God. Yet, the Christian gospel says that God will reach out to us, no matter how hard we work or how well we do. Because He is that good.

According to Crystal Clarity, the publisher of this edition, the revisions made in the Self-Realisation Fellowship editions since Yogananda's death in 1952 placed progressively more emphasis on the organisation than on the spirit of his work.

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.
