When I read this book 25 years ago, I fell in love with it. Imagine how excited I was when I found it here on Audible.com. THank you for providing such a foundational piece of work, dealing with many, many topics here on Earth, but above all, LOVE.
The Narrator has a wise edge to his voice without being overbearing. His Cadance allows the listener to experience the story without getting bored.
One special thing about this book is that you can begin listening anywhere and the story unfolds in a way that still engages you. Each chapter is a complete story.
I read this book about 35 years ago and it made a big impression on me. My daughter read it about 10 years ago and she says it changed her life. It has the feeling of truth to it and can make one believe in miracles even if you haven't experienced one.
Ben Kingsly does a great job reading it and Yogananda's words have inspired me all over again. I give it the highest rating!
I've seen the cover before, but had never read the book. So many deep questions that pushed and pulled at my psyche since I was young were easily set to equilibrium by Yogananda's brilliant account of his experiences. The narrator's voice fit the tone of the stories so well, its as if they were his own. I will be listening to this again and again.
A great guru, guide and teacher, Paramahansa Yogananda's story is truly delightful, engaging and inspiring. Ben Kingsley's superb reading was also one of the reasons I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book.
I'm not prone to picking up these kinds of books but I was inspired to do so. I'm glad I did! What a journey! What an intense experience! I'm getting a physical copy for my mom. She likes to have peeks into the lives of other people from other places.
Beyond that, it has some great messages and perspective on Christianity that changed my view. This is some deep but easy listening.
I HIGHLY recommend it.
may be more serious readers
this may be a good book but i think its not for me ..
may be narrated in a better way
Beautifully narrated by Ben Kingsley and well written by the great Yoganada. This book brings a magical light and invokes a hopeful element for the possibilities of the human heart and mind.
