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.
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.
I've been on a spiritual journey...I live in a concrete jungle where it's difficult to get any guidance. This book has opened my eyes to something that my spirit has been searching for...it is absolutely AMAZING!
"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.
Yes, the narration brings it to a whole new level, you can tell Ben was really enjoying this.
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.
It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did I am grateful I stayed with it.
