Autobiography of a Yogi Released in 34th Translated Edition
July 12, 2013
Translations of Paramahansa Yogananda's remarkable life story, Autobiography of a Yogi
, now include a Bulgarian-language edition
. In an article announcing the book’s release, the Bulgarian newspaper Maritsa
ran the following:
“The world best seller Autobiography of a Yogi has conquered Bulgaria, too!.... The best seller Autobiography of a Yogi has become a classic and a constant companion for those who are interested in Self-realization and spiritual unfoldment. It happens very rarely that one of Paramahansa Yogananda’s stature ever gives a personally written account of his own life experiences….
“Today the name of Paramahansa Yogananda is well-known to all who are interested in Eastern teachings and Yoga. Yogananda can be said to be the Father of Yoga in the West…. In his teachings Paramahansa Yogananda stresses the need for direct personal experience of God, not just blind belief. According to him, the true foundation of every religion is not belief but the intuitive experience of God. In order to understand what religion actually is, one must know God.”
This brings to thirty-four the number of languages into which this spiritual classic has been translated.
New Portuguese Edition of The Divine Romance
The Portuguese translation of Paramahansa Yogananda’s The Divine Romance was released in São Paulo, Brazil, in April, becoming the eighteenth book published by Self-Realization Fellowship in the Portuguese language. Brother Satyananda introduced the new title to the public during a public lecture series in São Paulo, attended by over 800 members and participants, many new to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda.
The Divine Romance includes over fifty talks and essays by Paramahansaji. In this powerful anthology, the great master reveals how we can meet the daily challenges to our physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being — by awakening our divine nature, the neglected reality at the core of our being: “The greatest romance you can have is the romance with God.... He is the Lover and our souls are the beloved, and when the soul meets the greatest Lover of the universe, then the eternal romance begins. The love that you have been seeking for incarnations through all human loves is at last yours.”
Other new translations include two titles released in French:
