Wonderful teachings by a great enlightened being. He is so humble and full of compassion. He indicated a good heart and kindness are key essential qualities for beings to live by. He was committed and dedicated in his spiritual practice, never wanted to accept any offerings given to him. He was a true renunciant with the heart of a Bodhisattva. Great book for spiritual seekers.

The Essence of Self-Realization, nearly 300 sayings rich with spiritual wisdom, is the fruit of that labor of love. The scope of this book is vast - it offers as complete an explanation of life's true purpose, and the way to achieve that purpose, as may be found anywhere. Filled with lessons and stories that Yogananda shared only with his closest disciples, this volume offers one of the most insightful and engaging glimpses into the life and lessons of a great sage.

Love Yogananda teachings it's full of wisdom. Advantages of audio book is that you can listen to it over and over to get the message to sink into your consciousness. I can listen while driving and let his words germinate positive seeds within.
