LAWS OF LIFE / AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI

Our book summary endorses the theory that every being is a devotee of God, even though some of us are atheists. “Autobiography of a Yogi” is a transparent book which covers the life-journey of Paramahansa Yogananda, also known as Mukunda Groh.
An adventurous and spirited boy, guided by the deeper sense of “I” into the mysteries of the unknown. Young Mukunda at the time didn’t seem to fit the Indian society.
Paramahansa talks about the supernatural and the events that shaped his remarkable revelation as an enlightened being. This book acknowledges some basic principles known to Westerners as well.
One of them is to maintain the highest level of integrity, to speak the truth and to witness it with your behavior.
Yogananda brought joy to this world; his words are indeed a true wisdom. Destined to accomplish magnificent things, he established himself as a righteous person – above all. The gentle and kind approach was his method of teaching not only the Indians, but also his words reached the West.
One more reason to start reading it right away: Autobiography of a Yogi is about the gray line between the ordinary and the extraordinary. It's about the laws of life that create the miracles we tend to call coincidences.
Paramahansa Yogananda proves once again that the power of words is above any other, turning the impossible into possible.
