The Life of Yogananda – The story of the Yogi who became the first modern Guru with Phil Goldberg

This important biography by author Phil Goldberg, of “the 20th century’s first superstar guru” is long-overdue. Ninety-seven years after his arrival in the United States, and sixty-five years after his death, Paramahansa Yogananda remains the best known and most beloved of all the Indian spiritual teachers who came to the West. His influence is unsurpassed, because of the durability of his teachings and the institutions he created or inspired (more than 600 centers worldwide; 200 in the US), and mainly because of his landmark memoir, Autobiography of a Yogi. Yogananda spent more than 30 of his 59 years in America, yet that period takes up less than 10 percent of his book. Huge chunks of his life—challenges, controversies, relationships, formative experiences—are unknown to even his most ardent devotees. This book fills those gaps.
