Paramhansa Yogananda (1893-1952) was a great spiritual master and world teacher. His classic Autobiography of a Yogi has inspired millions throughout the world.
This latest installment in the Wisdom of Yogananda series is the perfect prescription for giving your spiritual life or meditation practice a boost of inspiration. Yogananda's trademark blend of practicality and idealism offers an achievable step forward, wherever you are in your journey. For those who don't already have a meditation practice, it includes a chapter of suggestions, including a full description of the Hong Sau technique, which Yogananda calls one of India's greatest gifts to the world." Another nice feature is that, in addition to a regular index, there's a section at the back listing all references to specific techniques, so you can jump straight to information about affirmations, intuition, overcoming particular bad qualities, etc. It works well as a reference book, as a thought-for-the-day" book, or to simply read through and discover what speaks to you at the moment. -- East West Bookshop, Mountain View, CA
