we gain transformative tools for our spiritual Journey.

aspect of life. Read it with delight!
Pararnhansa Yogananda (1893-1952), one of
the first teachers to bring yoga to the West, emphasized direct inner experience of the Divine, which
he called "Self-realization." His teachings offer a
practical approach to inner awakening.
In his early years in America, Yogananda wrote
lessons and articles that are no longer widely available. The writings in the Wisdom of Yogananda series
are drawn from these sources.
Born in India in 1893, Paramhansa Yogananda
was trained from his early years to bring India's
ancient science of Self-realization to the West.
In 1920 he moved to the United States to begin what
was to develop into a worldwide work touching
millions of lives. Americans were hungry for India's
spiritual teachings, and for the liberating techniques
In 1946 he published what has become a
spiritual classic and one of the best-loved books
of the 20th century, Autobiography of a Yogi. In
addition, Yogananda established a headquarters for
a worldwide work, wrote a number of books and
study courses, gave lectures to thousands in most
major cities across the United States, wrote music
and poetry, and trained disciples. He was invited to
the White House by President Calvin Coolidge, and
he initiated Mahatma Gandhi into Kriya Yoga, his
most advanced technique of meditation.
Yogananda's message to the West highlighted
the unity of all religions, and the importance of
spiritual devotion combined with scientific techniques of meditation.
