How to Be Happy All the Time
The human drive for happiness is one of our most far-reaching and fundamental needs. Yet, despite our desperate search for happiness, according to a recent Gallup Poll, only a minority of North Americans describe themselves as “very happy.” It seems that very few of us have truly unlocked the secrets of lasting joy and inner peace.
Now, in this volume of all-new, never-before-released material, Paramhansa Yogananda—who has hundreds of thousands of followers and admirers in North America—playfully and powerfully explains virtually everything needed to lead a happier, more fulfilling life.
Topics covered include: looking for happiness in the right places; choosing to be happy; tools and techniques for achieving happiness; sharing happiness with others; balancing success and happiness; and many more.
Karma and Reincarnation
Many people share theories on reincarnation, or karma, or what happens at death. Paramhansa Yogananda, a master of yoga, writes from his own true knowledge and experience.
Coming through Yogananda’s words, above all, is the deepest encouragement to every reader: the reassurance that God loves us, and that all of life is designed to help us move toward our own highest fulfillment.
Included in the book are such subjects as:
- Why do we see a world of suffering and inequality?
- How should we handle the challenges in our lives?
- What happens at death, and after death? Is there a heaven?
- What is the origin and purpose of reincarnation?
This book offers fascinating answers for life’s great mysteries, but, more importantly, it tells you how to make the most of every day of the life you’ve been given.
As Yogananda explains the operation of karma, death, and reincarnation, he also shares the deeper purpose of existence for every soul. Understanding these truths can bring clarity, confidence, and inspiration into your life.

Man Who Refused Heaven, The
Why is humor so deeply appreciated? Laughter is one of the great joys of life. Joy is fundamental to who we are.
Yogananda’s experience of life, his experience of the goal of all life, was filled with joy. He lived in joy always, and sought to awaken it in others. Though he could be intensely serious and deep as appropriate, he also could express the greatest joy, often in unexpected situations.
The humor in this book arose spontaneously from Yogananda’s deep joy. Sometimes he used humor to express an important spiritual principle. Sometimes he used it in training the disciples, to help them learn in a way that reasoned lectures could never achieve.
This book is the 8th volume in The Wisdom of Yogananda series. Most of the humor in this book was taken from Yogananda’s writings. Also included are experiences with the master that demonstrate his playful spirit. These were written by Swami Kriyananda, from his years of being trained personally by Yogananda, or from stories that were shared with him by other close disciples.
How to Face Life’s Changes
Changes come in life not to destroy us. They come, rather, to help us grow in understanding and to learn the lessons we must if we are to reach our highest potential.
But how can we embrace change rather than resist its constant presence in our lives? How can we accept and face change with courage and faith when there is so much uncertainty in our world?
This volume will help you:
- Accept change as the reality of life
- Face change in relationships, finances, and health with gratitude
- Cultivate key attitudes like fearlessness, non-attachment, and willpower
- Embrace the changes in our bodies with grace and strength
- Acknowledge death as the “supreme change” in the physical body only
Yogananda will help you tap into the changeless joy of your soul-nature, empowering you to move through life fearlessly and with an open heart.
