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.

Interesting back story: A practitioner I met once some time last year suggested that I get this book as she intuited some connection between this Yogi and myself…something to do with life lines…ahem, I’ve forgotten the exact information obviously..hehe. So, my sister kindly ordered the book for me via the Violet Flame where she works and it arrived promptly with no hassles what-so-ever, that is to say the hassles sort of began when the book reached my hands. Excitedly flipping through the book I was full of expectations to have this great DING moment multiplied a gazillion times because well….I was CONNECTED with this guy, right?!?

As usual…nothing of that sort happened. I couldn’t get through the first 3 chapters without falling asleep and try as I could I found it boring and the language! Oh! The English language of the 1940’s …it was not very friendly to me. So, sadly and secretly quite gladly I just left it sitting on my bookshelf …occasionally my eyes would sweep past it and I’d wonder….

Until a few weeks ago when an invitation knocked on my door…that door called “Let’s read about the Yogi”. So…I took it out of the cupboard, dusted it off, looked at it heaving a large sigh and settled on reading the book…hoping I wouldn’t hit that sleep inducing wall again. And you know what??!!?? That’s right! I flew past the first 3 chapters, I flew past a few more chapters and I could UNDERSTAND what I read!! And I didn’t fall asleep either!! In fact, I’m enjoying the book! So yea, guess it was just time for me to read it now…instead of before 😀

I’m planning to go through the parts to share in order of their appearance in the book.
