This book will lead you from the power of personal action to the greater power of aligning all that you do with God's will.

Born in India in 1893, Paramhansa Yogananda
was trained from his early years to bring India's
ancient science of Self-realization to the West.
In 1920 he moved to the United States to begin what
was to develop into a worldwide work touch-ing
millions of lives. Americans were hungry for India's
spiritual teachings, and for the liberating techniques
In 1946 he published what has become a
spiritual classic and one of the best-loved books of
the 20th century, Autobiography of a Yogi. In addition,
Yogananda established headquarters for a worldwide
work, wrote a number of books and study courses,
gave lectures to thousands in most major cities across
the United States, wrote music and poetry, and
trained disciples. He was invited to the White House
by Calvin Coolidge, and he initiated Mahatma
Gandhi into Kriya Yoga, his most advanced technique

of spiritual devotion combined with scientific
techniques of meditation.

Paramhansa Yogananda came to the United States from
India in 1920, bringing to the West the teachings and techniques of yoga, the ancient science of soul awakening. He
was the first master of yoga to make his home in the West,
and his Autobiography of a Yogi has become the bestselling autobiography of all time, awakening fascination in Westerners with the spiritual teachings of the East.
Yoga is the ancient science of redirecting one's energies
inward to produce spiritual awakening. In addition to bringing Americans the most practical and effective techniques of meditation, Yogananda showed how these principles can
be applied to all areas of life.
The articles included in this book are taken from several sources: the lessons he wrote in the 1920s and 1930s, articles of his that appeared in Inner Culture and East West
magazines published before 1943, and the booklet The
Attributes of Success published in 1944. Most of what is
included here is not available elsewhere.
Our goal in this book is to let the Master's spirit come
clearly through, with a minimum of editing. Sometimes sentences, redundant in the present context, have been deleted.
Sometimes words or punctuation have been changed to
clarify the meaning. Great care was taken not to change any
of the original intention.
We hope you will use Yogananda's words as stepping-
stones to the success you are seeking.
