Spreading the Wisdom of Autobiography of a Yogi Globally

The Book that Sparked a Spiritual Revolution

Sparking a spiritual revolution with millions of copies sold, Autobiography of a Yogi is a spiritual treasure. Reading its message of hope is to begin a great adventure.

A sage of Paramhansa Yogananda’s stature rarely writes a firsthand account of his life experiences. 

Will you help us share the liberating message of Self-realization through the original Autobiography of a Yogi?

“As a bright light shining in the midst of darkness, so was Yogananda’s presence in this world. Such a great soul comes on earth only rarely, when there is a real need among men.”
—The Shankaracharya of Kanchipuram

Why the Original 1946 First Edition?

This is the only available edition that contains:

  • The original, unedited text, as written by Yogananda himself, free from posthumous changes introduced by others.
  • An appendix containing the final chapter, written five years after this edition was first published, presented free from all changes made after Yogananda’s death.
  • An all-new foreword and afterword, written by Swami Kriyananda, one of Yogananda’s best-known direct disciples.
