'This is the first time that an authentic Hindu yogi has written his life story for a Western audience. Describing in a vivid detail his many years of spiritual training under a Christ-like master - Sri Yukteswar of Serampore, Bengal - yogananda has here revealed a fascinating and little-known phase of modern India. The subtle but definite laws by which yogis perform miracles and attain complete self-mastery are explained with a scientific clarity.'
