's review

really liked it
bookshelves: yoga, autobio

Yogananda confided with Tagore and Gandhi and many other world great names. It's a beautiful auto-biography, recalling childhood, amazing stories of India, a troubled school-learning (the Humanities, and English...), and above all: the Master Teachings.

Yogananda brought Kriya Yoga to the USA and wrote many books; some on parallels between Christianity and Yoga. One of the key points of the book: his love for his Master Yuketswar.

A must-read book, especially in these days when Gandhi-inspired, social activist Anna Hazare draws millions in India against political corruption [review of 2011].
