    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    Peter A. says: "One of the finest books on Spirituality ever"
    "Magical, Enchanting, and true."

    Story

    OK so you want to better understand the thinking of the other side of the world. Not so long ago America welcomed these divergent ideas in a spirit of naive discovery and wonder. The Chattauqua lectures were happening on the east coast and Big Sur was a colony of artistic thinkers and lifestyle experiments. And P. Yogananda , having discovered the discipline/ritual/extacy of an enlightened life brought it to America and we loved it. This is the story of how one person developed to become a spiritual leader for millions. It makes sense to see his life unfold.
    I found this to be a wonderful story of his experience. Not preachy, not pushy. just where he came from what he saw and how it affected him. How it changed his thinking. If you are a devout Christian or Catholic this will not sway your faith but it may expand your idea of what a saint is.
