As a young man, Devi Mukherjee worked with Mahatma Gandhi in the Indian resistance movement against British rule and was eventually jailed for five months. After his release from prison in 1945, Devi began a spiritual quest throughout India and into the arms of one of the great sages of our time.

This beautifully written book takes you on a deeply inspiring pilgrimage to visit the saints and realized masters of modern-day India. Devi invites you to walk in his footsteps and experience India's spiritual richness, preserved in forest ashrams, mountain caves, and in holy places and shrines.

Throughout his many years of travel, Devi meditated with India's great souls and felt their transforming spiritual power. Here, Devi shares the many insights and lessons that he learned from these great ones-including those of his famous spiritual teacher, Paramhansa Yogananda.

In Shaped by Saints, Devi shares many previously unpublished stories of Yogananda's early life and 1935 visit to India that give the reader inspiring new glimpses of Yogananda's generosity, courage, loyalty to friends, and spiritual power.

From 1955 until 1966, Devi was part of Yogoda Satsanga Society, Self-Realization Fellowship's sister organization in India. It was during this period that Devi formed a life-long friendship with Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda and founder of Ananda World Brotherhood Village in northern California.
