Paramahansa Yogananda and Self-Realization Fellowship

Journey to Self-Realization: Collected Talks and Essays on Realizing God in Daily Life: Volume 3

Journey to Self-Realization includes over fifty talks and essays by Paramahansa Yogananda. It is the third book in a trilogy, which includes, Man's Eternal Quest and The Divine Romance, each of which are packed with information covering a vast range of spiritual topics.

While each talk is unique and powerful, the books in this trilogy can best be described as being about God: about God's place in man's life; in his hopes, will, aspirations, accomplishments. Life, man, achievement—all are but manifestations of the one omnipresent Creator, as inseparably dependent on Him as the wave is dependent on the ocean. Paramahansa Yogananda explains why and how man was created by God, and how he is immutably a part of God, and what this means to each one personally. Realization of the oneness of man and his Creator is the whole essence of Yoga. An understanding of man's inescapable need for God, in every aspect of living, removes the otherworldliness from religion and makes knowing God the basis of a scientific and practical approach to life.

Yogananda said, "Meditation upon the soul is the method by which the mind can be made to work its wonders under your control. When you find your true Self, the soul, you shall see that the body is nothing but an emanation of God."
