From the Back Cover
Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls in America to hear him speak. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This book, first published in 1946, helped launch, and continues to inspire, 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. This is a verbatim reprinting of the original edition, nowalso with previously unreleased bonus materials. This is the only available edition that contains: *The original, unedited text, as written by Yogananda himself, free from posthumous changes introduced by others *The final chapter, written five years after this edition was first published, presented free from all changes made afterYogananda's death *An all-new foreword and afterword, written by Swami Kriyananda, one of Yogananda's best-known direct disciples --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

establishes his ashram USA.
Yogananda says if you pray to god with full devotion, god will help you. He recounts many of his own experiences, when he met with a desperate situation and how praying to god helped him. He also talks about the Hindu philosophy of soul being deathless and reincarnation.
Many of the chapters are fascinating reads. But, some of the chapters need lots of effort to read and comprehend.
Overall, If you are a spiritual person and believe in god, then this book reinforces your belief. But, if you are a non believer, then you may find it difficult to believe many of the events described in this book.
It turns you into a believer even if you dont believe in anything.
Recommended the book more often in his podcast and videos than I thought that give it a shot and if you are also buying this because of the same reason as i buy it than JUST PICK IT UP. You don't regret your decision.. So firstly i am not a good reader it took me around a month to finish a 400 pages book. But in this i know that this will gonna take more than my average time because on every page you need a dictionary with you.. And every page teaching you some lessons really I just love this book.. Give it a shot. Jada se jada kya hogaa kuch naya seek jaaye ge... Agr yaha tak padd lea h na to aap ke dil m kahi na kahi h ke aap ko ese lena cahye ya nahi to mera jabab hoga bilul lena cahye❤️
