This super-short book by the master Paramahansa Yogananda is from 1957 (or before), so it is obviously not written in a modern style, and is thus not particularly readable.

However, this will not deter the reader interested in the book’s spiritual content.

Yogananda informs us that he receives much of his knowledge from God rather than books since he seldom reads. He tells us that in the vibration of his cosmic energy God is talking all the time. Saints hear the voice of God.

The Small Wonder!
A brief touch to touch and feel the spiritual life - GOD!

Seeing God as a "Human" is a more sensible thought!

Spirituality in a booklet.
Well, I read Autobiography of a Yogi a decade ago, I liked it then, I thought Ill like other books by the author!
I was surprised to see that book is actually a booklet and very disappointed reading its content, Its like promotional material for promoting Kriya yoga or whatever the author conducts.
Dont ever bother reading it. There is nothing here.

A truly excellent (though extremely brief) introduction to the basic ideas and approach of theurgy, a religious science which Mouni Sadhu called "the art of effective worship". Anybody interested in learning how to pray effectively can do a lot worse than to study this concise and beautiful little volume.

Every page I read is making my crown bigger; this is a very charged book. A definitely not to be missed book.
