Touch of Light is taken from the popular blog entries of the same title. Like the facets of a beautiful diamond, each chapter’s topic is a small reflection of the brilliance of one of the great spiritual figures of our time. Paramhansa Yogananda came to the West in 1920, bringing a new vision of how to live.
What revolutionary teachings did Yogananda bring? He taught that meditation is not an archaic ritual relegated to monasteries, but a practice that can greatly improve our lives. When he came to the United States virtually no one here meditated. Now millions do. He taught practical techniques to control and strengthen will power and to draw energy from universal sources. And Yogananda taught that making God central to daily life can enhance and uplift everything we do.
The authors were fortunate to have Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda, as a friend and guide. They were also founding members of many of these communities. They know from experience that these teachings can improve all aspects of life—health, business, success, creativity, marriage, family, education, and spiritual development.
