The deep yearnings for divine love and joy that are within each of us found many-faceted expression in the life of Paramahansa Yogananda - recognized as one of the preeminent spiritual figures of our time, and author of the acclaimed classic Autobiography of a Yogi.

Songs of the Soul is an outpouring of his direct perceptions of God - God in nature, in man, in everyday experiences, and in the spiritually awakened state of samadhi meditation.

Most of these poems were written during Yogananda's early years in the United States. His writings are not the considered renderings of a poet's fancies, but a revelation of the interior expereinces of a soul ever awake in Spirit, responding to the wonders of nature; to the memories of his beloved motherland; to the deep impressions made by new friends and acquaintances; above all, to the divine realizations born of that soul's intimate communions with God.

About the Author:

Born in India on January 5, 1893, Paramahansa Yogananda devoted his life to helping people of all races and creeds to realize and express more fully in their lives the true beauty, nobility, and divinity of the human spirit. After graduating from Calcutta University in 1915, Sri Yogananda took formal vows as a monk of India's venerable monastic Swami Order. Two years later, he began his life's work with the founding of a how-to-live school since grown to twenty-one educational institutions throughout India where traditional academic subjects were offered together with yoga training and instruction in spiritual ideals. In 1920, he was invited to serve as India's delegate to an International Congress of Religious Liberals in Boston. His address to the Congress and subsequent lectures on the East Coast were enthusiastically received, and in 1924 he embarked on a cross-continental speaking tour. Over the next three decades, Paramahansa Yogananda contributed in far-reaching ways to a greater awareness and appreciation in the West of the spiritual wisdom of the East. In Los Angeles, he established an international headquarters for Self-Realization Fellowship, the nonsectarian religious society he had founded in 1920. Through his writings, extensive lecture tours, and the creation of Self-Realization Fellowship temples and meditation centers, he introduced hundreds of thousands of truth-seekers to the ancient science and philosophy of Yoga and its universally applicable methods of meditation. Today, the spiritual and humanitarian work begun by Paramahansa Yogananda continues under the direction of Sri Mrinalini Mata, one of his closest disciples and president of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India since 2011. In addition to publishing his writings, lectures and informal talks (including a comprehensive series of Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons for home study), the society also oversees temples, retreats, and centers around the world.

Review:

The poems set forth experiences of the soul in touch with the Great Reality, God Everywhere. A sense of the constant, enveloping presence of the Almighty Spirit is the first and most notable impression...The underlying nobility of spirit that pervades the whole work should appeal to all. --Frederick B. Robinson, Ph.D., President, College of the City of New York
