Paramahansa Yogananda’s Books Win Prestigious Latino Literary Awards

October 18, 2016


In the largest Latino literary and cultural awards event in the U.S., two books by Paramahansa Yogananda recently won acclaim at the annual International Latino Book Awards (ILBA) held on September 8 in Los Angeles. These books are the Spanish edition of Paramahansa Yogananda’s God Talks With Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita, Vol. I, which took first place for “Best Religious Book” and second place for “Best Spiritual/New Age Book”; and the Portuguese edition of Paramahansaji’s The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You, Vol. I, which received first place for “Best Nonfiction Book (originally in another language).”

Since the inception of these international awards eighteen years ago, Self-Realization Fellowship has received twenty‑four honors—seventeen awards for works in Spanish, and seven for works in Portuguese. These books were singled out from among numerous other titles from leading publishers around the world.

This year’s event marks the first time that Paramahansaji’s two seminal commentaries on the scriptures of East and West have been honored at the same ILBA ceremony—a fitting tribute to the relevance of the great guru’s mission of revealing the underlying unity of the world’s religions.
