About Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda Paramahansa Yogananda (January 5, 1893–March 7, 1952), was an Indian yogi and guru. He was instrumental in bringing the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga to the West. His book, Autobiography of a Yogi, has introduced several generations of readers to the teachings of yoga and Hinduism. Yogananda taught his students the need for direct experience of truth, as opposed to blind belief. Echoing traditional Hindu teachings, he taught that the entire universe is God's cosmic "movie show", and that individuals are merely actors in the "divine play" who change "roles" through reincarnation. He taught certain yoga techniques that help people achieve self-realization, therefore knowing yourself is the key to understanding God because God is within.
