Publisher's Summary

Paramhansa Yogananda’s classic Autobiography of a Yogi was more about the saints Yogananda met than about himself - in spite of the fact that Yogananda was much greater than many he described. Now, one of Yogananda’s few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda, author of award winning book The New Path, tells the untold story of this great spiritual master and world teacher: his teenage miracles, his challenges in coming to America, his national lecture campaigns, his struggles to fulfill his world-changing mission amid incomprehension and painful betrayals, and his ultimate triumphant achievement.

Kriyananda’s subtle grasp of his great guru’s inner nature reveals Yogananda’s many-sided and extraordinary greatness. Includes many never-before-published anecdotes.

What the Critics Say

"This new biography of Paramhansa Yogananda will pave the path to perfection in the spiritual journey of each individual. I like this book. It is a masterpiece that serves as a guide in daily life. Through the stories of his life and the unfolding of his destiny, Yogananda’s life story will inspire the reader and flower a spiritual awakening in every heart.” (Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, author of Ayurveda: Science of Self-Healing, Textbook of Ayurveda series, and more)

“Where did we come from, why are we here, and where does this life lead to? Swami Kriyananda is the most experienced philosopher that could help us understand how his guru answers these questions. Through this biography of Paramhansa Yogananda, people will discover their divine nature and potential." (Bikram Choudhury, Founder of Bikram’s Yoga College of India, author of Bikram Yoga)

"A deeply insightful look into the life of one of the greatest spiritual figures of our time, by one of his most accomplished, yet last-remaining living disciples. Like the life it depicts, this book is a gem!" (Walter Cruttenden, author of Lost Star of Myth and Time)

    "Kriyananda's Memoirs"
    If you could sum up Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography in three words, what would they be?

    Almost good,but


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography?

    Yogananda's early years before he was a teaching master show him to be extraordinary in a way that the Autobiography does not. He could be humorous as well as humble. And yes, there were 'miracles' I had not heard about.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Kriyananda's voice is scratchy (God bless him) and not pleasant to listen to. He should dictate it to someone else to read


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely not. The information is good coming from a man who knew him personally, and is well worth hearing, so i did soldier through it, and would recommend doing so. A little at a time


    Any additional comments?

    Good listen
