Paramahansa Yogananda was a spiritual giant living in the first half of the 20th century. He was one of the first spiritual masters to bring the teachings of India's spiritual heritage to America.
Can you imagine leaving your home country of India, barely able to speak English and being able to deliver lectures in English on the boat on the cruise to America. That is so inspiring to me.
Now, about this collection - we are treated to 58 essays focussing on applying spiritual ideals to everyday living, rather than promoting particular practices from organized religion. These are not ordinary essays either, they are truly uplifting and inspiring because they are coming from a virtuous man; one who daily lived the greatest spiritual ideals.
I have to admit, this is my favorite collection of Paramahansa Yogananda's lectures; day by day they inspire me to live the best way I can, and when I need a spiritual question answered, it seems to be there, no matter what page I open.
This book opened my eyes to another dimension of life I thought was reserved for residence in heaven, only. And the best part was it inspires on how to reach that exulted state right now, living in the world.
I highly recommend this volume, an inspiring spiritual handbook, to all who wish to improve their understanding of how to live in line with the highest ideals!
