About the Author
Yogananda's initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting impact has been even greater. Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi", first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution throughout the world. His message was nonsectarian and universal. Yogananda's Guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar, sent him to the West with the admonition, "The West is high in material attainments, but lacking in spiritual understanding. It is God's will that you play a role in teaching mankind the value of balancing the material with an inner, spiritual life."
Yogananda brought clarity to hundreds of thousands of people regarding the ancient teachings of India - previously shrouded in the cultural assumptions and terminology of an era long past. These teachings include the path of Kriya Yoga, which Yogananda called the 'jet-airplane' route to God, consisting of ancient yoga techniques to hasten the spiritual evolution of the student.
"The true basis of religion is not belief, but intuitive experience. Intuition is the soul's power of knowing God. To know what religion is really all about, one must know God," said Paramhansa Yogananda in the book "The Essence of Self-Realization". He further wrote that "Self- Realization is the knowing in all parts of body, mind, and soul that you are now in possession of the kingdom of God; that you do not have to pray that it come to you; that God's omnipresence is your omnipresence; and that all that you need to do is improve your knowing." --This text refers to the paperback 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❤️
It's a really thick book, but every page is filled with layers and layers of deep knowledge interspersed with interesting incidents from author's life. The style of writing is very engaging and witty, with hardly a dull moment. A word of caution though...you'll always need a dictionary while reading this book. I have read hundreds of books, but never needed to reference dictionary that often, but for this book, I did. However, it was a great experience.
