This book rates #1. It restores faith in God. It also talks about the importance of prayer and meditation. It is not just about him, but about all of us. It makes sense.
When his mother died,
No. I haven't had the pleasure.
God is here now. Miracles still happen!
I listened to this book after hearing about it in the Steve Jobs biography. The book contains some interesting concepts and certainly provides insight into what made Steve Jobs tick. The narration and story are a bit tedious, but worth the listen.
Yes, as a matter of fact I have already listened to this audio book no less than six times. I find it inspirational and really interesting, and I am encouraged to take on my life on a whole new level - its resulted in me really exploring other spiritual books and teachings, take up yoga as a practice, and engage in an inquiry of my purpose on earth.
No, but I think the narration here is superb - excellent really.
Definately - the book is fairly long, but I could not get enough of it. I have even gone to get the hard copy, the kindle version, and some other writings of Yogananda.
Auto Repair shop owner. I love Yoga, and playing my Fender Stratocaster. I Walk my dogs twice a day.
But after this book I did write to Paramahansa Yogananda's foundation to find out what Krya yoga is. I must say this book is very universal in its appeal.
I'm a practicing Catholic and found nothing in this book that conflicted with my faith.
I have been practicing seeing my "God eye," and I must say only for the briefest of moments and only when I practice yoga regularly do I get close to god the way the author describes.
Is it my Lord and Savior, I have no idea but the book does open up a mysterious countries' history and you should know the journey to understand why a 7000 year-old body manipulation is more popular that ever.
Oh yea, the narrator Ben Kingsley is not to be missed; Ben has made me an expert in Sanskrit pronunciations.
Ben Kingsley brings a very good quality to one of the outstanding books of the last century. His accent, pace and rhythm take you right into India and brings the story alive.
Great story rooted in the brilliant realities of a world most people cannot imagine. Most interesting are the abilities of the great yogis. The story is just a carrier for the magic of exceptional human abilities.
I loved this book. It gave me insight into the life of a man searching for the meaning of life. The book is a wonderfully told story of a man's life. I wish I could have met the yogi.
I just follow the signs!
If you are searching for answers, this gives you the right questions to ask. You can get right answers only if you have the right questions.
This is immensely helpful in not only connecting with your loved ones but with the entire humanity. Must read for all !
The narration by Ben Kingsley made the book just that much more enjoyable. A lovely story with some discussion of parallels between yoga and Christianity.
This great work, by an even greater soul, is a monumental testament to God and all of humanity can reap great rewards by reading, or in this case, listening to it. If you do listen to it, it will touch you on a very deep and meaningful level.
