Indian yogi and guru
Indian yogi and guru who introduced
millions of Indians and westerners to
the teachings of meditation and Kriya
Yoga through his organization: Yogoda
Satsanga Society of India and
Guru: Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, a
disciple of Mahavatar Babaji
Name: Mukunda Lal Ghosh
According to his younger brother,
Sananda, from his earliest years
young Mukunda's awareness and
experience of the spiritual was far
beyond the ordinary.
In 1910 Yogananda's seeking after
various saints mostly ended when,
at the age of 17, he met his guru,
Swami Yukteswar Giri.
He describes his first meeting with
Yukteswar as a rekindling of a relationship
that had lasted for many lifetimes:
"We entered a oneness of silence;
words seemed the rankest
superfluities. Eloquence flowed in
soundless chant from heart of
master to disciple ..."
Yukteswar saw that Yogananda was
destined to bring their teachings
(Kriya yoga etc) into the west -
specifically USA. So he prepared
him for that.
In 1920, Yogananda went to the
United States as India's delegate
to an International Congress of
Religious Liberals convening in
Boston. That same year he founded
the Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF)
to disseminate worldwide his teachings
on India's ancient practices and
philosophy of Yoga and its
tradition of meditation.
He is well known for his book:
Autobiography of a Yogi.
In 1946, Yogananda published his
life story, Autobiography of a Yogi.
It has since been translated into
45 languages. In 1999, it was
designated one of the "100 Most
Important Spiritual Books of the
20th Century" by a panel of
Autobiography of a Yogi:
It can be found on Amazon from $2 (Kindle), $4 used, $15 (new paperback print) at:
He took up residence at the SRF hermitage in Encinitas (close to La Jolla and San Diego),
California which was a surprise gift from his disciple Rajarsi Janakananda.
It was while at this hermitage that Yogananda wrote his famous 'Autobiography of a Yogi'.
Here Yogananda travelled in India and meet some remarkable Masters before leaving for America.
We wee that Sri Ananada Mayi Ma recognized the presence of God in him!
He met also Ramana Maharashi and Gandhi.
