NEVADA CITY, Calif. (March 6) — One of the most anticipated spiritual biographies in recent years, Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography with Personal Reflections & Reminiscences will be released in the United States this spring by Crystal Clarity Publishers through a variety of special festivals, conferences, and events.
Following a highly successful launch in India, as well as the forthcoming March 10 European launch in Rome, Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography will officially be available to bookstores and for online purchase in the United States on March 16. It will be featured at the following events, among others:
- L.A. Times Festival of Books — April 21-22, University of Southern California campus
- Book Expo of America — June 4-7, Javits Center, New York, NY
- An Afternoon with Author Swami Kriyananda — June 24, Ford Theater, Hollywood, CA
The 340-page biography, written by Swami Kriyananda, one of Yogananda’s few living direct disciples, features numerous stories and accounts of the Indian yoga master’s life not found in the classic Autobiography of a Yogi. That book, the best-selling spiritual autobiography of all time, has drawn millions of spiritual seekers toward an interest in yoga and meditation. Kriyananda considers this biography the most important of the more than 130 books he has written to date.
Now, on the 60th anniversary of Yogananda’s mahasamadhi, or conscious passing, Swami Kriyananda brings out a book that details the essence of Yogananda’s message for these times. He specifically recalls the times Yogananda spoke directly with him about his future vision—a vision that, Kriyananda writes, made Yogananda an emissary for today’s age of accelerating energy, spirit, and consciousness.
The book’s engaging, story-driven narrative offers a deep insight into the way in which Yogananda shared his teachings of yoga, first with large crowds of people in the 1920′s and 30′s, and then with his closest disciples and friends during his latter years, when he wrote his works. It also shows the deep humility and commitment to divine union in others with which Yogananda conducted his work.
“This new biography of Paramhansa Yogananda will pave the path to perfection in the spiritual journey of each individual…It is a masterpiece that serves as a guide in daily life,” said Vasant Lad, author of Ayurveda: Science of Self-Healing.
Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography will be available in bookstores throughout the United States and the world, and through all major online booksellers. It is published by Crystal Clarity Publishers, a leading publisher of books pertaining to the dissemination of the works and teachings of Yogananda.
