Paramhansa Yogananda Classic Now Available Online

Autobiography of a Yogi
If you have never read the classic text, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda, I am delighted to share that it has been made available, in it’s original 1946 edition text, online at this site:
I just skimmed through a few pages and gathered gems in just that few, as I reminded myself again of this book I read long ago……
For example, I loved the admonition not to confuse spiritual tools with the goal, which is greater communion with and connection to God.
We can get so attached to meditation that we forget it has a purpose beyond itself.
I also loved the response of the Saint that lived in his home and rarely ventured past his own sidewalk. He said:
“God plants his saints sometimes in unexpected soil, lest we think we may reduce Him to a rule!”
Wonderful text. I’m so glad it’s available online now, free for the reading.
