Paramahansa Yogananda and Self-Realization Fellowship

Man's Eternal Quest: Collected Talks and Essays on Realizing God in Daily Life: Volume I

Man's Eternal Quest includes over fifty talks and essays by Paramahansa Yogananda. It is the first book in a trilogy, which includes, The Divine Romance and Journey to Self-Realization, 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, "Mankind is engaged in an eternal quest for that 'something else' he hopes will bring him happiness, complete and unending. For those individual souls who have sought and found God, the search is over: He is that Something Else."

Topics include:

  • Who Made God?
  • Will Jesus Reincarnate?
  • How to be Happy at Will
  • Understanding the Unreality of Matter
