I was surprised last Friday to see that not many people had heard of Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramhansa Yogananda. It’s an uplifting classic from 1946, which is now available for free online:
Our area has many connections to Yogananda. Steve Jobs had a copy handed to all the people attending his memorial. If you visit East West Bookstore down the road from the studio, you will see his statue as one of the organizations he founded is running it. There’s the Lake Shrine in L.A. (hat tip David W.) and numerous other Self Realization Fellowship institutions throughout California.
Anyway, if you want to know more about yoga and are feeling down, that’s the book for you!
