Named one of the "Hundred Best Spiritual Books of the Century," Autobiography of a Yogi has become recognized by followers of many religious traditions as a masterpiece of spiritual literature.
Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda's stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Describing in vivid detail his many years of spiritual training under his Christ-like master, Sri Yukteswar, Yoganandaji has here revealed, with scientific clarity, a fascinating and little-understood aspect of modern India: the subtle but definite laws by which yogis perform miracles and attain complete self-mastery.
This current, edited version is available in Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Tamil, and Telugu.
The original 1946 edition is available in English and Hindi.
What Others Are Saying:
This renewed contact with the Yogisphere, its mental superiority to material reality, and its spiritual discipline, was very instructive for me, and I am grateful to you for granting me some insight into this fascinating world. –Thomas Mann, Nobel Prize Winner
Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information–much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency–come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years. –Amelita Galli-Curci
As an eyewitness recountal of the extraordinary lives and powers of modern Hindu saints, the book has importance both timely and timeless. Yogananda’s unusual life-document is certainly one of the most revealing of the Hindu mind and heart, and of the spiritual wealth of India, ever to be published in the West. —W. Y. Evans-Wentz, Jesus College, Oxford University; author of The Tibetan Book of the Dead
