The book that started it all! Paramhansa Yogananda is the “patron saint” of East West, since Ananda, the spiritual community we're affiliated with, is founded on his teachings. Yogananda was the first Indian guru to make his permanent home in America, first arriving here in 1920. His mission was to unite the East and the West by demonstrating the inherent unity of all religions, and his autobiography has been a perennial bestseller and a source of inspiration to millions of truthseekers and to anyone interested in finding their own, direct experience of spirituality.
