Now back in print in paperback.
This exceptional book contains hundreds of stories of Paramhansa Yogananda and two of his closest disciples: Rajarshi Janakananda (James J. Lynn, a prominent businessman) and Durga Mata (Florina Darling, who came to Yogananda during his early years in America).
Durga moved to Mt. Washington, Yogananda’s headquarters in Los Angeles, in December 1929. Sharing with readers her twenty-two years of life with her Guru, she tells of activities at Mr. Washington during the Depression; of Yogananda’s lecture campaigns across the U.S.; of various interactions between the Master and his disciples; of Yogananda’s visions, healings, miracles, and more.
In 1936, the Master asked Durga to move to his hermitage in Encinitas to assist Rajarshi Janakananda, Yogananda’s most highly advanced disciple. For many years, Durga served Rajarshi on almost a daily basis, and from these close interactions she paints a rare portrait of this great saint and his deep meditations, his personal habits, and his contacts with Yogananda.
Finally, in this book Durga shares her own life and devotion to her Guru. Coming to Yogananda as a young woman, she remained a devoted disciple until her death in 1993. Her book-when combined with writings shared by other disciples such as Swami Kriyananda-helps to present a well-rounded picture of what life was like with the great Master and world teacher, Paramhansa Yogananda.
