The Essence of Self-Realization
Filled with stories that Paramhansa Yogananda shared with his close disciples, this book is an insightful and engaging glimpse into the life and lessons of a great modern master of yoga.

Scientific Healing Affirmations
Scientific Healing Affirmations is a beloved 1924 classic by the great yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. This pioneering work of self-healing and self-transformation empowers you to create a new reality by shifting the dynamic thought patterns of your mind.
Many poetic works can inspire, but few, like this one, have the power to change your life. These verses rank with the greatest mystical poetry of all time: the works of St. John of the Cross, Rumi, Kabir, Mirabai, and Omar Khayyam. In this book Paramhansa Yogananda—the great master of yoga and author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi—shares his exquisitely beautiful thoughts and words filled with longing for the divine. Yogananda was not only a spiritual master, but a master poet, whose poems revealed the hidden divine presence behind even everyday things.
A great spiritual master of ancient times, Patanjali, presented humanity through his Yoga Sutras with a step-by-step outline of how all spiritual aspirants achieve union with God. He called this universal inner experience and process “yoga” or “union.” His collection of profound aphorisms—a true world scripture—has been dubbed Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
The great modern yoga master—Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi—has cut through the scholarly debris of several scholarly translations and commentaries and resurrected Patanjali’s original teachings and revelations. Now, in Demystifying Patanjali, Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda, shares his guru’s crystal clear and easy-to-grasp explanations of Patanjali’s aphorisms.
The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita
The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his close and direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.
This revelation of India's best-loved scripture approaches it from an entirely fresh perspective, showing its deep allegorical meaning and also its down-to-earth practicality. The themes presented are universal, including: how to achieve victory in life in union with the divine; how to prepare for life's "final exam," death, and what happens afterward; and how to triumph over all pain and suffering.
This book clarifies the core of Jesus's basic message, that one's true identity is not that of a sinner but a child of God indwelt by His divine presence.
