Autobiography of a Yogi
by Paramahansa Yogananda
The autobiography of Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952) details his search for a guru, during which he encountered many spiritual leaders and world-renowned scientists. When it was published in 1946 it was the first introduction of many westerners to yoga and meditation.The famous opera singer Amelita Galli-Curci said about the book:"Amazing, true stories of saints and masters of India, blended with priceless superphysical information-much needed to balance the Western material efficiency with Eastern spiritual efficiency-come from the vigorous pen of Paramhansa Yogananda, whose teachings my husband and myself have had the pleasure of studying for twenty years."

I suppose at the time that I was reading it, one of the more impactful books for me when I was living down in the jungle and experiencing more of the deeper reflections through the medicine space was Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda.
