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.

    "New ways to look at religion/spirituality"

    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.

    "Great segue to kriya yoga"

    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.

    "truth injecting"

    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

    "I couldn't wait to listen any chance I got."

    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!

    "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.
