Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to permanently live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, as he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his spiritual campaigns, his enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls of America. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still.

This audiobook, the version of which was first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West. Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda's stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humor, lively stories, and practical common sense. Now, with this audiobook, the 1946 edition is again available, with all its inherent power, just as the great master of yoga first presented it. Download and start listening now!

    " The most life changing book I have ever read. As a follower of Yogananda's teachings for the past 30 years this book has impacted my life and the search for the truth of existence. I would recommend this book if you are a spiritual seeker of any religion. "

    " This book changed my life. I recommend everyone read it. "

    " I know I'm "suppose" to love this. Every single spiritual person I meet gushes over this book and then gives me suspicious beedy eyes when I disagree. I got this look from husband, father in law, friends. I don't tell people I've read it now to avoid the conflict. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Motta | 2/3/2014

    " excellent spiritual journey "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Venning | 12/26/2013

    " I just loved this book! Strangely, I had never even heard of it until I met Sarah, my partner, who had a copy, and I just started reading it and before I knew it I couldn't put it down. His command of the English language and eloquence which with he described his powerful, ethereal experiences moved me deeply but not quite enough to move to India and become a sadhu; but it moved me nonetheless. My favourite chapter is the one where after his guru, Yukteswar, dies and comes back for a supernatural visit and explains to Yogananda life after life. It was truly amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D'artagnan | 12/23/2013

    " Some of the stories and parables from this book have stayed close with me over years, become well worn memories, while other sections are, um, dense, or unbelievable. The book seemed to change my life, but when I listened to it on tape a couple years ago it impressed me less. Very worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaren | 12/4/2013

    " A classical masterpiece for the meaning of life and truth. A penetrating look (for the outsider) of an earthly figure's quest to find answers to: how? what? and why? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Pedersen | 12/2/2013

    " However skeptical I may be about the nature of the miracles and divinity that is throughout in this book, I was completely sucked in to the amazing life of Yogananda. This is an epic life story and quite educational too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Smith | 11/4/2013

    " Sri Yogananda gives clear analysis of the interface between science and religion. Wish Stephen Hawking would read this book, or if he has, give it more diligence. As more discoveries reveal the amazing reality of our universe, Eastern spiritual practices as well as Western are rediscovered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aman Mishra | 8/10/2013

    " Changes the thought process 360 degrees. A must read. Very honestly written about the journey of a yogi. "

    " Could not read it until I was ready to appreciate something supernatural without judgment. Glad to have read it - can't say I believe it - but gosh wouldn't it be marvelous to do that "

    " In addition to being a highly evolved person, Yogananda is also a great story teller so you can read this book from many different angles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 10/30/2012

    " This book, and consequently Paramahansa Yogananda, helped to begin my look at the Metaphysical Meanings of Jesus the Christ. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/28/2011

    " I really shouldn't be giving this a rating because I only finished 67 pages (oops, since it was required reading for yoga teacher training). I just could not make myself get into it, although it wasn't as heavy as I originally feared. I will try it again someday. "

    " My husband and I went across country for a job and we listened to this during our trip. Insightful, wonderful and pleasing. The story of this Yogi teacher who died here in the United States where his followers helped him create his institute in Los Angeles. A very good read or listen. "
