A unique handbook of insight and inspiration for daily life, Where There Is Light, offers spiritual insights drawn from the writings and lectures of renowned mystic Paramahansa Yogananda author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi. A world teacher who brought the ancient science of yoga meditation to the West in 1920, he dedicated his life to uniting East and West in the lasting ties of spiritual understanding, and to helping others towards realization of the infinite sources of peace, love, and joy that exist within every human being. This warmly engaging anthology contains but a small sample of his teachings. The diverse flavor of its contents reflects the wide spectrum of sources from which they are drawn: Some passages are taken from public lectures or classes; others come from informal talks to small groups of disciples and friends; additional selections are from his writings. Topics include:
* Finding wisdom and strength to make life s decisions
* The antidote for stress, worry, and fear
* transforming our failures into successes
* Security in an uncertain world
* Perfecting human relationships
* The power of affirmation and prayer
* Understanding death
* Developing a personal relationship 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.
