I have learned to look at the swaying grass, a smile, the sky, silence, in a whole new way- to not only appreciate things, but love them. Thank you Master Yogananda for great wisdom and open hands, so that we all may know and receive the goodness of all life. I would recommend this book to any looking for a greater purpose, and a truth they know is there, but may need help finding it.
I bought Autobiography of a Yogi from the audible book store but never took time to listen to the narration. However upon looking at the documentary on Netflix I immediately bought the kindle ebook and read the book in its entirety. Pausing many time to grasp the nectar prose of Yogananda and turning back the pages to read again and again.
This is one of the most inspiring and thrilling books I have ever read in my life and all the feelings that I've had for years can now be explained since the book gives great insights as to how we can live life using our physical body and yet find God.
I firmly believe that humans are capable of doing a whole lot better if only they can just believe love and a soft heart is all that is required to save this world from all the turmoil we are experiencing.
I lament that I couldn't have read this book 15 years ago but from the insights given by Sri Yukteshwar I know that I have not lost anything and that the timing was correct.
My work now is to get others to know about this great book and my only desire is to master the 1st step of Kriya Yoga.
Oh Swami Yogananda please show me the way. I beg. Help me please.
For those unfamiliar with Paramahansa Yogananda, he is credited with integrating some Hindu teachings and practices with American culture. This includes yoga and meditation. In particular, he reached American audiences during a speaking tour in 1924. He founded temples and became popular with many Christians.
Yogananda teaches us that our life's purpose is to find God. His story started out with a description of his religious family and their life in India. Yogananda lived his philosophy. The direction of his life story is in some ways the opposite of the paths society chooses for us. That's one reason it inspires.
An interesting conclusion of the author is that the world would benefit from adopting the efficiencies of America along with the spirituality of India. Along with so many others, I recommend this book.
