Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda


Talk about life-changing books - Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda was the one that awakened my yearning for self realization!

A friend handed me the book and suggested it was a good read. Well, I put it off for 5 months, but took it with me on a trip. As I read chapter after chapter of the amazing mind-boggling, nay, mind-opening experiences of this early 20th century sage I knew these were the kinds of spiritual experiences I wanted for myself and as soon as possible!

So, I began meditating using a mantra that came to me in a dream from Sri Yogananda - which I will share with you, because it had such a profound effect on my life. The mantra is "Om Reveal" with the emphasis on the "m" of the word Om and the 2nd syllable of Reveal. Breathing in on "Om" and out on "Reveal."

This all happened more than 20 years ago, and still today, Autobiography of a Yogi sits at the top of my stack of bedside books - no matter where my travels around the world take me.

This may seem like an unusual book review, but all 49 chapters of Yogananda's travels and visits with saints of his day are inspiring - including Rabindranath Tagore, Luther Burbank and Therese Neumann, the Catholic Stigmatist, amongst many others.

What more can I say to convince you this is my all-time top rated spiritual read!

Details: 592 page paperback; published by Self-Realization Fellowship (June 1, 1979); ISBN: 0876120796
