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.

    "This book ties it all together."

    I've seen the cover before, but had never read the book. So many deep questions that pushed and pulled at my psyche since I was young were easily set to equilibrium by Yogananda's brilliant account of his experiences. The narrator's voice fit the tone of the stories so well, its as if they were his own. I will be listening to this again and again.

    "A beautiful story told by a beautiful soul"

    A great guru, guide and teacher, Paramahansa Yogananda's story is truly delightful, engaging and inspiring. Ben Kingsley's superb reading was also one of the reasons I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book.

    "Wow"

    I'm not prone to picking up these kinds of books but I was inspired to do so. I'm glad I did! What a journey! What an intense experience! I'm getting a physical copy for my mom. She likes to have peeks into the lives of other people from other places.
    Beyond that, it has some great messages and perspective on Christianity that changed my view. This is some deep but easy listening.

    I HIGHLY recommend it.

    "did not catch my interest"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    may be more serious readers


    What could Paramahansa Yogananda have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    this may be a good book but i think its not for me ..


    How could the performance have been better?

    may be narrated in a better way


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no
