LIFE OF YOGANANDA by Philip Goldberg

by: Philip Goldberg

Through his extremely popular book Autobiography of a Yogi – a staple on the backpacking trail and gateway for many into the life of spirit – Paramahansa Yogananda is one of the world’s best-known Indian teachers. We know much about his life from the book, but it tends to gloss over his career and mission once he came to America and started to set up the Self-Realization Fellowship. This new title thoroughly and entertainingly fills the gaps and acts as a tribute to this remarkable man. More than a compelling biography, it also works as a guidebook for how we too can live, based on Yogananda’s experiences. We can glimpse aspects of Yogananda’s interior life and see some of the struggles and controversies he was involved in. Reading it, though, I was more than ever convinced of his greatness.
