This is part of an anthology of collected talks by the beloved Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda, which includes, The Divine Romance, Man's Eternal Quest and Journey to Self-Realization. They are beyond review. They are what I keep in my own nightstand and what I open during times of trouble.

A great collection of essays by the Yogananda.
Insightful and full of genuine love and grace. This is one of the few books of teachings I have turned to and found comfort in during times of confusion or distress.
The writing is not obscure or vague in meaning at all; even a person who knows little about religion or esoteric subjects could open to a chapter, understand what is written, and put it to use in their life. :)
Highly recommended.
His love for God was unbelievable, we need to be more like this...however, I am not sure if he was Buddist or Hindu religion though.
Toss up between this book and Man's Eternal Quest in terms of greatness. This, to me, is spirituality.
