    You can read it online ! ! ****** http://www.crystalclarity.com/yogananda/1.asp

    This is the book for people who can read...it is absoloutely fascinating, an account of a saints life, and all the amazement and discoveries he beheld.

    It's not easy to read..but if you enjoy reading, then you'll favour the challenge and truly relish every word, and ounce of colour in this book.

    The content is astounding, tiger fighting, astronomy, nobel prizes, breatharians, personal friendship with ghandi, miracles and vivid descriptions of beautiful striking lands...
    highest physics, music mathematically, deep philosophy and profound transforamtions..dreamscapes, and literally so much more.

    this book is stuffed to the brim with invaluable information, from a ridiculously clear and hieghtened mind. this mans life is MIND BLOWING...


    it begins with his memory of being conciously born...

    i hope you get as much out of this book as i do...i read it over and over...there is SO MUCH detail and knowledge!!!
    pecae..enjoy!!


    **********************
    A description of the book from my friend, and grandmaster of the shen men tao...
    The Autobiography of a Yogi is the actual personal account of the training and experiences of one of the great yogis of the 20th Century. It is not a fictional work. As such, Yogananda's book sheds invaluable light on the Classical Hindu yogic methods of Self-Realization which have been taught in India traditionally for many milleniums to date. Yogananda's teaching in India and abroad was instrumental in popularizing his School of Yoga throughout the world. His own personal demonstration of the highest levels of achievement through lifelong devotion to Yoga teachings and practices were an indisputable validation of the multi-faceted benefits from Yoga Meditation and Exercises.

    This is an outstanding book by a true yogi saint. Yogananda practiced bhakti yoga, the Yoga of devotion. He was indeed the embodiment of devotion, and this book chronicles his miraculous life.

    You cannot but help being affected by his story and his passion.

    You know, I never yet heard or read anyone say a word against this book....which must say something....


    It's a true classic of spiritual literature. It's deeply affected and touched many.

    ::nods:: This is very true...I have not heard a word against it either...I remember I found it completely by accident...I was just looking around in the bookstore ...and the picture just said "read me!" ...and I remember starting it at the start of the school year last year and my German teacher going, "You are reading that book? Its one of my favourites! " :)

    I have a very nice copy of Yogananda's book somewhere; I've dipped into it, and it is very good. Must get around to reading it all through properly sometime.

    Still wading through my copy at the moment, I do find it a little hard going at times. Riveting none the less though. Its does leave one thinking we are all barking up the wrong tree, with regards to searching for material possessions instead of spiritual wealth. Boils down to a simple question really, are we more or less than the sum of are parts??

    Ahhhh Yoganada, this book for me has shown me to have true whole faith in the love of god, miracles a manifestion of our communion with this force of infinite possibilities. Like, we are the creators of our reality..

    Ive read it about 3-4 times... my copy now is completely water logged and has writting all in it, cause ive taken it traveling.. whenever i go to the woods or something, always gotta birng autobiography of a yogi ;)

    This timless tale always warms my heart, as i read i peer into the infinite reality of possibility and potentials.
