Publisher's Summary

Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to permanently live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, as he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his "spiritual campaigns", his enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls of America. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This audiobook, the version of which was first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West. 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. Now, with this audiobook, the 1946 edition is again available, with all its inherent power, just as the great master of yoga first presented it.

Wisdom; Knowledge; Humbling.

It didn't take long to accustom the the dialect of the narrator, then I really found his voice soothing and heart opening to listen to.
As for the book, its starts off slow, but it is worth hanging in. The second half of the book is a treasure of experiences and learning. Overall it is an amazing story. Really gives us "mere mortals" a perspective of where we are on the journey to enlightenment, and the potential that lays within all of us. Inspiring! It would appeal to a person serious about their spiritual development. It expanded my mind well beyond what it was before listening this truly amazing autobiography.
