This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Autobiography of a Yogi is at once a beautifully written account of an exceptional life and a profound introduction to the ancient science of Yoga and its time-honored tradition of meditation. Profoundly inspiring, it is at the same time vastly entertaining, warmly humorous and filled with extraordinary personages. With engaging candor, eloquence, and wit, Paramahansa Yogananda tells the inspiring chronicle of his life: the experiences of his remarkable childhood, encounters with many saints and sages during his youthful search throughout India for an illumined teacher, ten years of training in the hermitage of a revered yoga master, and the thirty years that he lived and taught in America. Also recorded here are his meetings with Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Luther Burbank, the Catholic stigmatist Therese Neumann, and other celebrated spiritual personalities of East and West. The author clearly explains the subtle but definite laws behind both the ordinary events of everyday life and the extraordinary events commonly termed miracles. His absorbing life story becomes the background for a penetrating and unforgettable look at the ultimate mysteries of human existence.
Selected as "One of the 100 Best Spiritual Books of the Twentieth Century", Autobiography of a Yogi has been translated into more than 30 languages, and is regarded worldwide as a classic of religious literature. Several million copies have been sold, and it continues to appear on best-seller lists after more than sixty consecutive years in print. Self-Realization Fellowship's editions, and none others, include extensive material added by the author after the first edition was published, including a final chapter on the closing years of his life.
My favorite Book of All Time
This book is truly life changing. It was reported to be the only book Steve Jobs had on his iPad. It has received rave reviews from all quarters since it was published in the middle of last century. This edition is the one approved of by the author.
Notwithstanding the fact that saying “it changed my life” is overused, this book absolutely changed my life. Am delighted that the authorized edition is available as an e-book.
Inspired. Beautiful. A must.
Finally the real version of an inspired work written by a man who knew truth through spirituality very personally and deeply. This book goes beyond ordinary spiritual writing and is sure to interest the novice to the constant practitioner of any spiritual path. I cannot recommend this book enough! A must read.
