Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Karma, death, and reincarnation are fascinating subjects for many of us. The more we understand them, the richer and more meaningful life becomes for us. In this book you'll read the words of Paramhansa Yogananda, a great master of yoga who wrote not from speculation, but from his inner perception of truth.

Yogananda offered teachings that can fill your life with inspiration and clarify your spiritual direction.

Paramhansa Yogananda came to the United States from India in 1920, bringing to the West the teachings and techniques of yoga, the ancient science of soul awakening. He was the first master of yoga to make his home in the West, and his Autobiography of a Yogi has become the bestselling autobiography of all time, awakening fascination in Westerners with the spiritual teachings of the East.

Yoga is the ancient science of redirecting one's energies inward to produce spiritual awakening. In addition to bringing Americans the most practical and effective techniques of meditation, Yogananda showed how these principles can be applied to all areas of life. He was a prolific writer, lecturer, and composer. He lived in America 32 years, until his death in 1952.

The articles included in this book are taken from several sources: the lessons he wrote in the 1920s and 1930s; articles of his that appeared in Inner Culture and East West magazines, published before 1943; the 1946 edition of Autobiography of a Yogi; Yogananda's original interpretation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, edited by Swami Kriyananda; and notes taken by Swami Kriyananda during the years he lived with Yogananda as a close disciple.

Our goal in this book is to let the Master's spirit come clearly through, with a minimum of editing. Sometimes sentences, redundant in the present context, have been deleted. Sometimes words or punctuation have been changed to clarify the meaning. Most of what is included here is not available elsewhere.

May Yogananda's words on this important subject bring you understanding, comfort, and inspiration.

From the Inside Flap

As you explore the subjects of karma, death, and reincarnation in the pages of this book, you discover that each subject has much to teach you about how to approach every day of your life. Beyond that, as you delve into these pages, you will find a greater sense of direction and inner joy filling your life.

Paramhansa Yogananda (1893-1952), one of the most renowned and beloved yoga masters of the 20th century, is the author of the spiritual classis, Autobiography of a Yogi. One of the first teachers to bring yoga to the West, Yogananda emphasized direct inner experience of the Divine, which he called "Self-realization." His teachings are universal and offer a practical approach to inner awakening.

In his early years in America (1920-1942) Yogananda wrote several series of lessons and many articles that are no longer widely available. The writings in the Wisdom of Yogananda series are drawn from these sources.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Richard Salva VINE VOICE on January 6, 2008
Format: Paperback
As someone who has studied karma and reincarnation in depth for more than thirty years (see my book: Soul Journey from Lincoln to Lindbergh), I found this to be a remarkable study of a much misunderstood subject.

Paramhansa Yogananda shows once again why he is universally regarded as a spiritual master. He brings clarity to the whys and hows of reincarnation--covering not only the questions that usually arise in our minds when considering the possibility of past lives, but taking us beyond to a deeper understanding of life itself.

It becomes clear after reading this book that there is a definite and profound purpose and reason for everything that happens in our lives. We being to comprehend the all-encompassing nature of karma and how to apply it for our highest welfare.

I teach classes on karma and reincarnation, and when I do, I use this brief text as a guidebook. If you are interested in these subjects, you could scarcely do better than to begin or continue your search by purchasing and reading this wonderful book.

Format: Paperback
This compilation of Paramhansa Yogananda's writings on karma and reincarnation reverberates with Divine Wisdom. Such an esoteric topic can easily get bogged down when described from mere theory. However, Yogananda's words are alive and speak from the true nature of the soul and its progress toward freedom from all limitation. The reader is brought into a deeper understanding with each reading of the passages in this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a very helpful book covering an important topic. These are Yogananda's direct teachings taken from his own writings. You can almost feel his direct presence as you read these pages. It's such a gift to be able to access the great Master's teachings in this format. This is a must read for anyone into Yogananda or the yoga teachings of karma and reincarnation.

I would also recommend the first volume in this series, entitled, "How to be Happy All the Time" by Paramhansa Yogananda.

Many of Yogananda's extemporaneous talks were compiled individually then combined into books of similar topics. He often said that the concepts of karma and reincarnation go together because they, in truth, require and assume one another.
In my current book, The Eternal Religion: Glimpses of Divine Glory I utilize heartily from this book to augment and illustrate how Christian theological doctrines have no "legs" upon which to stand when they assume falsely that the 'New Testament' teaches 'one life to live and after that the judgment.'
In any case you can trust what this Avatar says on the twin intertwining truths of karma and reincarnation.
