Book Review: Sri Sri Paramhansa Yogananda

Sri Sri Paramhansa Yogananda is widely regarded as one of the prominent spiritual figures of our times. He has many books to his credit, and his book: Autobiography of a Yogi has an eternal place in the hearts of readers who value peace and harmony.


In The Sanctuary of The Soul – a guide to effective prayer is drawn from the direct experiences of the author. He guides the reader to the wisdom and insight he gained from his long years of learning on the art of self-realization. The book is about establishing our own personal relationship with God.


Every chapter of the book is inter-linked with other chapters, and yet each chapter has an independent seat in the book. The Preface by Sri Sri Daya Mata, written from Los Angeles in January 1998 is also an informative link.


Paramhansa Yogananda’s lectures and books have attracted huge audiences, worldwide. The style of his communication is simple and convincing. He talks about true happiness, inner peace, and the impact of the lasting connectivity with God.


“I tell you truthfully that all my questions have been answered, not through man but through God. He is. He is. It is His spirit that talks to you through me. It is His love I speak of. Thrill after thrill! Like gentle zephyrs His love comes to every soul…”


The book is an actual guide, purposeful to readers of both eastern and western religious traditions. The lines are the true reflections of the author who believes that our soul and God are One. The author in his book says: ‘Your trouble in meditation is that you don’t preserve long enough to get results.’
