For the month of October, I would like to share with you some quotes and passages from the book Autobiography of a Yogi which shares the life of Paramahansa Yogananda ( January 5, 1893 – March 7, 1952). It was written by Paramahansa Yogananda and details his life long search of the Divine from childhood. As I type this, I’m only about slightly more than half done but felt it would be nice to share some of the passages which caught my attention (and that of my highlighter) 😉
I’m planning to go through the parts to share in order of their appearance in the book.
As the closing post for this series, I wanted to share with you a story. This story describes the Astral planes which is beyond the physical plane we know of. In the book, Paramahansa Yogananda’s guru, Sri Yuketeswara has passed on. While sitting in a hotel room in the US, feeling very desolate about his passing, Sri Yuketeswara pays him a visit! During the conversation between the student and his beloved guru, the story of what is beyond is unfolded.
I’m sharing this because it’s beautiful. The description is as if from a fairy tale or science fiction, and you may take it as that.
I do hope you enjoy the little excerpt. There was more, but thought I’d just record a part of it.
And…that’s it for my little series of quotes, passages and some thoughts from Autobiography of a Yogi.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you 🙂
