One of the Top 100 Spiritual Books of the Twentieth CenturyNew Bonus Materials added to this edition include The last chapter that Yogananda wrote covering the years 1946-1951 that wasnot available in the original edition. The eulogy that Yogananda wrote for Gandhi. A new afterword by Swami Kriyananda, one of Yogananda's closest disciples.This is a new edition, featuring previously unavailable material, of true spiritualclassic, Autobiography of a Yogi one of the best-selling eastern philosophytitles of all-time, with millions of copies sold, named one of the best and mostinfluential books of the 20th century.This highly prized verbatim reprinting of the original 1946 edition is theONLY one available free from textual changes made after Yoganandas death.This updated edition contains bonus materials, including a last chapter thatYogananda himself wrote in 1951, five years after the publication of the firstedition. It is the only version of this chapter available without posthumouschanges.Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to liveand teach in the West. His first-hand account of his life experiences includes childhoodrevelations, stories of his visits to saints and masters in India, and long-secretteachings of Self-realization that he made available to the Western reader.

Swami Yogananda, a young Hindu monk, delivered his first address, "The Science of Religion," to the International Congress of Religious Liberals meeting in Boston on October 6, 1920. He remained in America and began to attract thousands to his public lectures. In 1925, Yogananda established the headquarters of his organization, the Self-Realization Fellowship, on Mount Washington in Los Angeles. (One of his most distinguished disciples was the horticulturist Luther Burbank.) His Autobiography of a Yogi Autobiography of a Yogi was published in 1946 and has been translated into 18 languages. Yogananda and the Self-Realization Fellowship have been the means by which many Americans have been introduced to and have adopted Hindu modes of thought and religious practice. Yogananda taught that Hindu mysticism was compatible with and similar to Western and Christian mysticism. In 1935 his guru gave Yogananda the title Paramahansa, which means "supreme swan" and is a title indicating the highest spiritual attainment. His disciples regard the manner of Yogananda's death---he expired immediately after addressing a banquet in honor of the ambassador from India---as a demonstration of his supreme yogic bodily control. The Self-Realization Fellowship continues to be an important alternative religion in America, and it has a strong institutional presence in and around the Los Angeles area.
