This acclaimed autobiography of Yogananda came out in 1999 and was an instant success all over the west. Selected as one of the 100 best spiritual books of the century, this autobiography takes the readers on an inspiring journey of his life—his innocent children full of remarkable experiences, his youthful quest for an illuminated teacher that took him through the lengths and breadths of the country and let him meet many sages and saints, his 10 years of training in an ashram under his God-realized Guru, and of the numerous years he spent as a spiritual preceptor to the seekers of truth all over the world. Apart from this, the book also records his profound meetings with Ananda Moi Ma, Ramana Maharshi, Master Mahasaya (a disciple of Ramakrishna Paramhansa), Jagadish Chandra Bose, Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi.
A beautifully written much appreciated book of an exceptional life, this book has been translated into 35 languages.

Yogananda also sheds considerable light on the subtle but definite laws behind every ordinary events of life as well as the extraordinary or the miracles.
