Paramhansa Yogananda’s classic Autobiography of a Yogi was more about the saints Yogananda met than about himself—in spite of the fact that Yogananda was much greater than many he described.
Now, one of Yogananda’s few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda, author of award winning book The New Path, tells the untold story of this great spiritual master and world teacher: his teenage miracles, his challenges in coming to America, his national lecture campaigns, his struggles to fulfill his world-changing mission amid incomprehension and painful betrayals, and his ultimate triumphant achievement. Kriyananda’s subtle grasp of his great guru’s inner nature reveals Yogananda’s many-sided and extraordinary greatness. Includes many never-before-published anecdotes.

In The Press
I devoured Swami Kriyananada's anticipated biography of Paramhansa Yogananda like a hungry devotee in order to come closer to the great master of Kriya Yoga. I highly recommend this book to all spiritual seekers, and with heartfelt gratitude to Swami Kriyananada for sharing the life of such a Great Soul with poetic candor and factual imagery. I love the way this book is written like a historical novel, in which one who was so near and dear to our beloved Yogananda has shared with intimate detail, remembering every word of the Great Master's dialogues so that those conversations came alive for me. Ananda Moyi Ma devotees around the world, as myself, will be thrilled with this intimate portrait of Paramhansa Yogananda, who we so greatly love and regard.
