Autobiography of a Yogi
Paramahansa Yogananda was the first great master of India to live in the West for an extended period. Sent by his guru, Sri Yukteswar, to America in 1920, he was to introduce tens of thousands of students to the science of yoga. Since its first publication in 1950, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI has been translated into many languages round the world and has become an undisputed classic in its field. Paramahansa Yogananda's story is interwoven with scholarly reflections on the religious and scientific foundations of both Eastern and Western culture, and with descriptions of his meetings with such spiritual leaders as Mahatma Gandhi, Babaji, Therese Neumann and Rabinranath Tagore. A man who explored and taught about the most subtle mysteries of reality, Paramahansa Yogananda continues to inspire readers all over the world.
