This little book offers definite metaphysical methods of meditation for the student who has struggled through the mobs of rowdy thoughts and is entering the portals of silence.
The meditations are of three types: prayers or demands addressed to God, affirmations about God, and affirmations arousing the divinity inherent in individual consciousness.
Beginners and experienced meditators alike can use these spiritualized thoughts to awaken the boundless joy, peace, and freedom of the soul.
Paramahansa Yogananda (1893–1952) is widely regarded as one of the preeminent spiritual figures of our time. Born in northern India, he came to the United States in 1920, where for more than thirty years he taught India’s ancient philosophy and science of yoga meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living. The first great master of Yoga to live and teach in the West for an extended period of time, he traveled and lectured extensively throughout North America and abroad, speaking to capacity audiences in major cities and revealing the underlying unity of the world’s great religions. He has inspired millions through his acclaimed life story, Autobiography of a Yogi, his groundbreaking commentaries on the scriptures of East and West, and his numerous other books. Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual and humanitarian work continues to be carried on today by Self-Realization Fellowship, the international society he founded in 1920 to disseminate his teachings worldwide.
