Magic, Miracles, Spiritual Rapture and Yogananda's gifts and journeys to the USA’s spiritually hungry citizens waiting to experience authentic spirituality fill the pages of Autobiography of a Yogi which changed millions of lives.  But what happened during the many years Yogananda did not write?  Racism, financial complications, western vs. eastern cultural traditions, internal feuds?  What transpired in his life that led to his ability to teach so many in the USA about meditation, spiritual transcendence, or humane generosity?  Philip Goldberg’s latest book The Life of Yogananda captures every essence of this beautiful soul’s struggles and delights and provides a most profound portrait of this miracle worker.  Explore the history of Yogananda, other gurus and swamis from the East as such impacted Western involvement with spirituality, soulfulness, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and the definition of Christ-consciousness with author and researcher Philip Golberg at philipgoldberg.com.
