Description

This is not an ordinary audiobook. It is a spiritual treasure. To hear its message of hope to all truthseekers is to begin a great adventure.

Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to permanently live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, as he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his "spiritual campaigns", his enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls of America. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This audiobook, the print version of which was first published in 1946, helped launch, and continues to inspire, a spiritual revolution in the West.

Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda's stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humor, lively stories, and practical common sense.

This is a verbatim republication of the original 1946 edition. Although subsequent reprintings, reflecting revisions made after the author's death in 1952, have sold over a million copies and have been translated into more than 19 languages, the few thousand of the original have long since disappeared into the hands of collectors. Now, with this audiobook, the 1946 edition is again available, with all its inherent power, just as the great master of yoga first presented it.

At long last!

How thrilling to finally have the full, unabridged version available! For several years I've listened to Swami Kriyananda's abridged reading of this great classic work, wishing to have the missing chapters filled in. It is a treat to have this reading by a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda who knew him personally, and who is a great teacher in his own right.

Awful and depressing reading

Is a pity how poorly represented is Yogananda's extraordinary book with this audio. The voice sounds hypocritical, fake, falsely "spiritual". Couldn't you find honest professional performer to do this? I guess you should have started by looking for a Hindu performer to read it; or at least a real professional. But the product offered sounds like a hippie babbling under the influence. I'm returning the audio to LearnOutLoud, let's see if I can use the credit to buy something decent.
