Throughout the decades, one title that continues to appear on best-seller lists is Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. This timeless book remains a seminal work in the field of Eastern religion -- the definitive introduction to the science and philosophy of yoga meditation that draws more readers with each passing year. All our editions of the Autobiography include extensive material added by the author after the first edition was published, including a final chapter on the closing years of his life. Also included are numerous high-quality photographs and a complete subject index.
An autobiographical journey of a man whose only interest lies in discovering the divine. A well written book, that at times seems utter fantasy but still manages to convey the subjects utter determination and confirms his belief in the unseen world.

Best book I've ever read!!!
A fascinating journey into "paranormal" realms with an affable yogi as a tour guide, this is the story of a disallusioned Calcutta schoolboy who, after his mother's sudden death, embarks on a life-long quest to find meaning in life. The "detective of divinity" travels as far as Germany to meet Catholic stigmatist Therese Neumann, and candidly investigates swamis of various spiritual stature within India. Dispatched to America during the Roaring Twenties by his line of swamis to introduce the "science of religion" to sceptical westerners, Yogananda spoke to capacity crowds at Carnegie Hall (Celebrity fans have included Elvis, Ravi Shanka, and George Harrison. Humour nad Humanity without humbug. Loved it!
