Paramahamsa Yogananda – Autobiography of a Yogi

Paramahamsa Yogananda

Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahamsa YoganandaUnaltered Version

This is the first time that an authentic Hindu yogi has written his life story for a Western audience. Describing in vivid detail his many years of spiritual training under a Christlike master – Sri Yukteswar of Serampore, Bengal – Yogananda has here revealed a fascinating and little-known phase of modern India. The subtle but definite laws by which yogis perform miracles and attain complete self-mastery are explained with a scientific clarity.


There are colorful chapters on the author’s visits to Mahatma Gandhi, Sir Jagadis Chandra Bose, and Rabindranath Tagore. The section dealing with Yogananda’s Western experiences includes a chapter on his great friend, Luther Burbank, and an account of the author’s pilgrimage to Bavaria in 1935 to meet Therese Neumann, the amazing Catholic stigmatist.


After establishing a high school with yoga training at Ranchi, India, Yogananda came to America in 1920 as the Indian delegate to the International Congress of Religious Liberals. He has lectured extensively in the United States and abroad, and is the founder of a Yoga Institute at Encinitas, California.

Yogananda is a graduate of Calcutta University; he writes not only with unforgettable sincerity but with an incisive wit.


It is a special English unaltered version on the occasion of Paramahamsa Yogananda’s 100 years since coming to the West. All over the world we are celebrating Uniting East and West – Paramahamsa Yoganandaji’s vision in action.

Now, as we are facing the world-wide spread of Covid-19 the great Gurus message and vision becomes even more meaningful.

Lahiri Mahashaya predicted: „The message of Yoga will encircle the globe. It will aid in establishing the brotherhood of man.“

This book is the message of the warmth of brotherhood of man to overcome the present crisis and to realize peace on earth.
