“The deeper the Self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.”
“You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”
Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become. ― Paramahansa Yogananda

Kriya Yoga was lost for many centuries in the dark ages. It was not until it was reintroduced in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji. The latter’s disciple Lahiri Mahasaya was the first to teach it openly in our era. This knowledge was later passed on from Lahiri Mahasaya to Swami Shri Yukteshwar Giri. Swami Shri Yukteshwar Giri later passed it on to Paramhansa Yogananda.
He went on to publish his book, “Autobiography of a Yogi” in 1946 to critical and commercial acclaim. This book has sold over four million copies with the publishers listing it as one of “the 100 best spiritual books of the 20th century. Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs had also ordered 500 copies of this book for his memorial. This book has been labeled as “the book that changed the lives of millions”.
