Yogananda was a prolific writer. Divine inspiration found expression in his numerous books, five original sets of Yogoda lessons, hundreds of articles for the magazines, two volumes of poetry in addition to those written for the magazines and lessons, and more than a thousand pages of commentaries on the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. One of the main characteristics of Yogananda’s writings is their delightful freshness. We can feel the inspiration that was flowing from the divine, through his consciousness, through his pen and directly on to the paper. They are alive! They scintillate with power, wisdom and often with marvelous humor.
Sadly, most of the original editions of his writings have long since disappeared into the vaults of Self-Realization Fellowship. Some have been reissued in highly edited form. Others have recently become available, ironically, as a result of SRF’s attempt to maintain a monopoly on them. Yet many remain sealed away and perhaps will never again be available to Yogananda’s devotees.New! Download all of these out-of-print writings as a free 101-page PDF
