Original 1946 Edition
Named one of the "Top 100 Spiritual Books of Last Century", now in unabridged audiobook.
Read by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda.
This is not an ordinary book. It is a spiritual treasure. To read its message of hope to all truthseekers is to begin a great adventure.
Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda's stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humor, lively stories, and practical common sense.
This is a verbatim reprinting of the original 1946 edition. Although subsequent reprintings, reflecting revisions made after the author's death in 1952, have sold over a million copies and have been translated into more than 19 languages, the few thousand of the original have long since disappeared into the hands of collectors. Now, with this reprint, the 1946 edition is again available, with all its inherent power, just as the great master of yoga first presented it.
Note: This 1946 edition is the only available version approved for publication during the author's lifetime. It does not contain substantial posthumous changes to the text unlike other editions which have thousands of changes, many of which substantially alter the original meaning of the text.) Even if you have already bought a posthumously edited version, you'll enjoy the authentic vibration of the original.

"In the original edition, published during Yogananda's life, one is more in contact with Yogananda himself. While Yogananda founded centers and organizations, his concern was more with guiding individuals to direct communion with Divinity rather than with promoting any one church as opposed to another. This spirit is easier to grasp in the original edition of this great spiritual and yogic classic."
—David Frawley, Director, American Institute of Vedic Studies
"This renewed contact with the Yogisphere, its mental superiority to material reality, and its spiritual discipline, was very instructive for me, and I am grateful to you for granting me some insight into this fascinating world."
—Thomas Mann, Nobel Prize Winner
"Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information—much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency—come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years."
