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.


The Wisdom of Yogananda series features writings of Paramhansa Yogananda not available elsewhere. These books capture the Master’s expansive and compassionate wisdom, his sense of fun, and his practical spiritual guidance. The books include writings from his earliest years in America, in an approachable, easy-to-read format. The words of the Master are presented with minimal editing, to capture the fresh and original voice of one of the most highly regarded spiritual teachers of the twentieth century.

What Others Are Saying

"As someone who has studied karma and reincarnation for more than thirty years, I found this to be a remarkable study of a much-misunderstood subject.

"Paramhansa Yogananda shows once again why he is universally regarded as a spiritual master. He brings clarity to the whys and hows of reincarnation—covering not only the questions that usually arise in our minds when considering the possibility of past lives, but taking us beyond to a deeper understanding of life itself.

"It becomes clear after reading this book that there is a definite and profound purpose and reason for everything that happens in our lives. We are being asked to comprehend the all-encompassing nature of karma and how to apply it for our highest welfare.

"I teach classes on karma and reincarnation, and when I do, I use this brief text as a guidebook. If you are interested in these subjects, you could scarcely do better than to begin or continue your search by purchasing and reading this wonderful book."

—Richard Salva, author of The Reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln: Historical Evidence of Past Lives
