About The Author:
Paramahansa Yogananda was born in India on January 5, 1893. He dedicated his life to assisting individuals of all races and creeds in realizing and fully expressing the inherent beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human soul. Sri Yogananda took solemn vows as a monk of India’s historic monastic Swami Order in 1915, following his graduation from Calcutta University. Two years later, he founded a how-to-live school that has grown to twenty-one educational institutions around India, offering traditional academic topics alongside yoga training and instruction in spiritual principles. He was invited to represent India in the International Congress of Religious Liberals in Boston in 1920. His presentation to Congress and subsequent talks on the East Coast were well-received, and he began on a cross-continental speaking tour in 1924. Over the next three decades, Paramahansa Yogananda made significant contributions to the West’s increased knowledge and appreciation of Eastern spiritual wisdom. He created a global headquarters for Self-Realization Fellowship, the nonsectarian religious organization he founded in 1920, in Los Angeles. He exposed hundreds of thousands of truth-seekers to the ancient science and philosophy of Yoga and its globally applicable methods of meditation through his writings, lengthy lecture tours, and the establishment of Self-Realization Fellowship temples and meditation centers. Today, Sri Mrinalini Mata, one of Paramahansa Yogananda’s closest pupils and president of the Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India since 2011, continues Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual and humanitarian work. Along with publishing his writings, lectures, and informal talks (which include a thorough set of Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons for self-study), the society also manages temples, retreats, and centers worldwide. — The following text is from the hardback edition.
