"A superb audio translation....Extraordinary work." (Library Journal)
"Ben Kingsley's smooth, articulate performance makes the formal writing style accessible to the listener." (AudioFile)
I really enjoyed this book. It forced me to reconsider a lot of how I viewed spirituality by making me look through a perspective so different from my own.
I had started Reading the Kindle format several times but found it difficult to get beyond a few chapters. Ben Kingsley's narration brings the book alive keeping the reader engaged through to the end of this important work.
anyone on a spiritual path can only profit from this book, read or listen to it often. Anyone not on a spiritual path should not see reading or listening to this book as an accident encouter. The truths expressed in this book are more valuable than gold or diamonds
First, Ben Kingsley is an absolute pleasure and joy to listen to and for a work as long as this, delivers a flawless performance. I never tired of hearing him, nor this story. Following that, I looked forward to every moment of 'down time' (folding laundry, doing dishes, driving, walking my dogs) where I could absorb more of this incredible autobiography! It is so well written and inspiring on so many levels!
This is a classic! Anyone interested in spiritual development this book is a must. Ben Kingsley, who narrates the book is brilliant.
"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.
"A golden insight into the spiritual world"
An wonderful account of how the teachings of the world's religions fuse and interconnect into a singular spiritual message and truth
