"Introspection is a wonderful mirror,
but greater than that is to see your image
in the flawless mirror of a wise man's mind."
— Paramhansa Yogananda, The Master Said
Association with my Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, over a period of 27 years, during long and shorter intervals, in various locations and under the differing circumstances, is recorded here, knowing the hunger of devotees for words about their Preceptor.
I have been asked so often: "Tell about your days with Master." This is what I have endeavored to do. These pages include only that which touches directly upon my own discipleship and privileged hours with him. It is possible that some passage or pictured scene will give insight into the eternal quality of the Guru's relationship with the disciple. May this glimpse bless, as all who touched his life have been blessed.
