Publisher's Summary

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.

This audio edition, featuring Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley's masterful narration, contains the complete text of Paramahansa Yogananda's life story, an absorbing account of a singular search for Truth. Yogananda describes his experiences with modern-day saints and illuminated masters of India, and presents a definitive introduction to the whole science and philosophy of Yoga.

    "One of the best books ever!"

    Well-written, well read, and filled with amazing true stories about Yogananda's travels all over India seeking Truth. Full of interesting and true adventures with both sages and scientists of the east and west. Great read for anyone seeking depth and truth in their own life.

    "A book of unparalleled beauty and value."

    I first read this book in the 60s and it has only grown in power and necessity to unravel the vicissitudes of life in the 21st-century. The reading by Sir Ben Kingsley elevates illuminates and harmonizes this treasure.

    "Fulfilling for the heart and soul"

    Gets better every time. Yogananda is a true teacher for the modern day yogi amidst a western culture that may have missed the mark.

    "Humbling, Entertaining and Instructive"

    An enjoyable book detailing Paramahansa Yogananda's life and the trials, frustrations and wisdom that was revealed to him from the likes of Sri Yukteswar and Babaji. His stories are entertaining, amusing and carry great teaching. The narrative by Sir Ben Kingsley is perfect for this book and is beautifully read by him.

    "Amazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Autobiography of a Yogi to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narration brings it to a whole new level, you can tell Ben was really enjoying this.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really enjoyed this book, it made me look at like in an entirely different way, fans of the secret would enjoy listening to this.


    Any additional comments?

    It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did I am grateful I stayed with it.
