Review by A reader from Canada
Paramahansa Yogananda, a modern 20th century Yoga Master, who is living example of all that he wrote about, shows the reader a new and balanced approach to the spiritual life. He makes it clear, practical and sensible as well as appealing. You won't be able to put it down till it's finished. The recent editions with the orange covers, are His most up to date editions, which also includes the 49th chapter, and enhancemets made by Him and his appointed editors in chief before and after 1952. These most recent editions also give the reader a very complete view to Yogananda's final meanings.
This truly remarkable autobiography will help the reader understand the purpose of life and how to reach true fulfillment.
This work gives the reader an excellent overview of comparative religion and how to appreciate all true prophets and creeds.
Paramahansa Yogananda established the Self-Realization Fellowship to represent Babaji's line of Masters and disseminate his teachings and Kriya Yoga world-wide.

Autobiography of a Yogi has forever changed my life. I have never in my life read a book that had the peaceful effect that this book had on my spirit. It actually took me 3 or 4 years of seeing the book before I picked it up and bought it. And when I open it up and began reading I felt as if Yoganandaji was with me. His words seem to come alive and his presence is so strong. I felt my chakras opening and it was the most wonderful book reading I have ever experienced.
I do think that Yoganandaji beautifully brings together christianity and Hinduism. I agree that for centuries people have mis interpreted the bible. And what is different is that he communed with God for his interpretations, other's seem to just insert their own beliefs. Guruji's writings are truly masterful. I am forever grateful for him bringing east and west together. I have finally found a teaching that will take me home....To God.
After reading this book I got in touch with SRF and began to receive the lessons. My life will forever be changed and I am glad that God lead me to Paramahansaji.
I also began reading one of his other books "Man's Eternal Quest". And you have no Idea how these writings helped me. My father was sick when I began reading this book (Man's eternal Quest) and there were so many practical things in the way of guidance. I called and spoke with the spiritual counselors at SRF and they were so wonderful and helpful. 6 weeks later when my dad died, I was able to mourn but also to see his death as a transition in life, and I was so comforted by common sense messages in Yoganandaji's writings half a century after his writing them. Anyway I encourage anyone to read this book and his other's with an open heart and mind. and if you really want to know yourself and know God in a way that you never thought possible consider taking the SRF Lessons, you'll be blessed beyond your imagination.
