Free Book On Line - Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

https://www.ananda.org/autobiography/

This is the book Apple scion Steve Jobs gave to all who attended his funeral as a going away gift.

As a seeker of truth in my youth 50+ years ago, this book opened up possibilities that made sense to that confused young brief-case carrying woman who became disillusioned with how the corporate world worked.n For that matter, how the world worked. A Pisces in a sea of faceless bureaucrats and emotionally dulled people.

I found Autobiography of a Yogi after exhausing the self-help, world religions, and philosophy sections of a three story, paper backed bookstore. Resonance and explanations appeared from within the pages.

A couple of years ago, I popped on line, searched for the title and found a free copy which I read on my iPad. Out of thankfulness to the provider, Ananda, I then purchased a copy for my grandchildren.

Enjoy.

Greatly entertaining story. Brain bleach.

2. You are welcome. I loved re-reading at this end of the life.

Definitely an outlook changer I am thankful to have encountered.

3. Similarly, I read it in my youth.

Even subscribed to the SRF course for a while. Yogananda is a wonderful teacher. I have it on my Kindle, but have not re-read it. Perhaps your post will inspire me to do so. Thanks!

Firesign Theatre had a shout out to the yogi in one of their sketches. "Paramahansa Yogananda Parlez-vous"
