In 1988 I read for the first time, Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda.
I had begun my attendence at a Bhaki Yoga Ashram, devoted to Maha Avatar Babaji, which was to continue for nine years.
I felt a deep Love for Sri Yukteshwar, and India felt close to my heart.
Yogananda had a very special role for North Americans, although he brought Bhakti he also honoured Western Christianity.
The two volume set of comparitive Yoga/Christianity, called The Second Coming of the Resurrected Christ Within, is available now.
Yogananda taught Kriya Yoga, which is in part, a Discipline of Sacred Breath.
His timeless work lives on, in Spirit as well as in his writing.
