Paramhansa Yogananda

At Divine Blessings Academy®, we are honored to share the books and teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, as presented by Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters), a direct disciple of Yogananda.

Paramhansa Yogananda (sometimes spelled Paramahansa Yogananda), 1893-1952, was a great yoga master from India who took up permanent residence in the West, in Los Angeles, California.

Yogananda first arrived in America in 1920, traveling throughout the United States on what he called his 'spiritual campaigns'.  Many hundreds of thousands of individuals gathered at some of the largest halls in major American cities to see him and listen to his teachings.

Yogananda's inital impact on the Western culture was truly impressive, but his lasting spiritual legacy has been even greater.  His Autobiography of a Yogi, which was first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West.  Translated into more than a dozen languages, it remains a best-selling spiritual classic to date.

Yogananda's message was universal.  Before embarking upon his mission to the West, he received this admonition from his teacher, Swami Sri Yukteswar:

The West is high in material attainments, but lacking in spiritual understanding.  It is God's will that you play a role in teaching mankind the value of balancing the material with an inner, spiritual life.

"The true basis of religion is not belief, but intuitive experience.  Intuition is the soul's power of knowing God.  To know what religion is really all about, one must know God." --Paramhansa Yogananda from The Essence of Self-Realization
