A Yogi Master in the West

Paramhansa Yogananda’s arrival in Boston in 1920 marked the beginning of a new wave of spiritual consciousness in America and throughout the world. Author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, the life changing wisdom of his teachings touched countless souls across the country. “Simple living and high thinking,” he said, “lead to the greatest happiness.” And further, he declared, “Kriya Yoga is the jet airplane route to God.” 100 years later we see the spiritual principles of yoga and Self-Realization spreading across the planet and awakening the yearning for God in hearts everywhere.

I am lost, Father, in the wastelands of wrong beliefs; I cannot find my home. Rise on the darkness of my mental sky and be the polestar of my groping mind. Lead me to Thyself who art my Home.
– Paramhansa Yogananda
