Spiritual Relationships

The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda, Volume 3
by Paramhansa Yogananda

Dear Reader,

What a wonderful vision of life Paramhansa Yogananda describes in these pages, as he examines all relationships and their divine potential. Always realistic, practical, and entertaining, Yogananda is not afraid to express the all-too-obvious challenges we face, and also to share clear and powerful solutions and directions.

Parmhansa Yogananda came to the United States from India in 1920, bring to the West the teachings and techniques of yoga, the ancient science of soul awakening. He was the first master of yoga to make his home in the West, and his Autobiography of a Yogi has become the bestselling autobiography of all time, awakening fascination in Westerners with the spiritual teachings of the East.

Yoga is the ancient science of redirecting one's energies inward to produce spiritual awakening. In addition to bringing Americans the most practical and effective techniques of meditation, Yogananda showed how these principles can be applied to all areas of life. He was a prolific writer, lecturer, and composer. He lived in America 32 years, until his death in 1952.

The articles included in this book are taken from several sources: the lessons he wrote in the 1920s and 1030s; articles of his that appeared in Inner Culture and East West magazines, published before 1943; the 1949 edition of Whispers from Eternity; and notes taken by Swami Kriyananda during the years he lived with Yogananda as a close disciple.

Our goal in this book is to let the Master's spirit come clearly through, with a minimum of editing. Sometimes sentences, redundant in the present context, have been deleted. Sometimes words or punctuation have been changed to clarify the meaning. Most of what is included here is not available elsewhere.

May Yogananda's words on spiritual relationships infuse your life with greater clarity, inspiration, and divine love.
