Publisher's Summary

The Path is a fascinating story of one man's search for the truth. J. Donald Walters (also known as Swami Kriyananda) recounts how, as a young man, he examined and discarded as false many of the promises offered by modern society. Gradually he realized that lasting human happiness comes not from outer success but from deepening spiritual awareness. Eventually, his searching brought him to the door of one of the spiritual giants of this century, Paramhansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi).

What ensued was Donald Walter's spiritual training under Yogananda, who showed him a clear path to the attainment of spiritual ideals through the practice of the science of deep yoga meditation. The yoga philosophy and way of life are explained vividly through over 400 stories and sayings from Walters' experience of living with Yogananda.

Living the spiritual life, as a close disciple of Yogananda eventually inspired Walters to found a spiritual community and worldwide movement, so as to better share with others Yogananda's principles and teachings. The Path offers a wealth of practical and inspirational wisdom. Indeed, it holds for those seeking it the transforming power of a true spiritual classic.

    Story
    "40 minutes in, and still in his childhood . . ."

    Spiritual-, metaphysical-, and consciousness-related books interest me. I'd read some negative reviews on this book, so held off. But, thought I'd give it a try now.

    I have no idea who this man is, but also have no idea who most of the authors whose books I read. So, I thought I'd ignore the negative comments and see for myself.

    40 minutes into this audiobook we are *still* in his childhood and I have no idea WHATSOEVER what this man has accomplished and has to contribute to the edification of me or anybody else.

    Perhaps he has a brilliant observation that I would be interested in. But how long will I have to wait to get to it? Maybe he should have started with that and then gone into his detailed personal history afterwards for anyone who is interested. As a footnote. Or an Appendix. Maybe the linear approach is not the best for all books. We all have a childhood and most childhoods can be summed up in 30 seconds.

    I skipped forward a bit to see if it gets better, but gave up. Nothing interesting.

    At the same time I bought a couple audiobooks with Alan Watts speaking. The total opposite. Alan Watts talks about ideas, life, and makes brilliant observations that make for "light bulb" moments as I listen. I feel enlightened and expanded listening to Alan Watts share his thoughts.

    After 40 minutes of this audiobook I was wondering when I was going to find out what this man has to share - any Insights?, Observations?, Experiences?

    Perhaps they are in this audiobook, but I prefer books that GET TO THE POINT. Maybe this book is one where I should be enjoying the journey and not focus on the destination, but so far it's a boring trip, and I'm going no further.
