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. They are what I travel with and what I share with others when authentic spiritual guidance is sought.

These timeless teachings are practical, but wholly genuine. Dear Paramahansa Yogananda is forthright, but lovi

This is really simple yet effective information that is esential to all seekers of eastern meditation, yoga and mysticism. But there are also western concepts as well. Yogananda recognized jesus and worshiped god as the emanation behind all souls. Pracitial tips like avoiding meat and drugs are key to mankinds developmens. Next to mohammad, yogananda was one of the greatest to ever live.

I like many books on Eastern spiritual/wisdom traditions like Buddhism and Taoism, but not this one. I'd recently watched a documentary on Yogananda, and this is the first book of his I tried to read. Maybe it wasn't the right one to start with, because I didn't make it through the first chapter. Read like a mad libs of Judeo-Christian terminology.

A simple and quick read which consolidates the best practices of the East and West on life's universal truths to achieve a life of abundant material riches through humble service.

“Many ask, "Shall we first acquire material success to fulfill our worldly obligations, and then seek God? Or should we have God first and then go after success?" By all means, God first. Never begin or end your day without communion with Him in deep meditation. We should remember that we could not perform any duties without the power borrowed from God. So it is to Him we owe our first allegiance. If you do your other duties but forget God, He doesn't like that at all. The ideal is to perform all duties with the sole desire to please God.” 5 likes
