About the Book :
Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. It shares the profound insights of Paramhansa Yogananda as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.
This revelation of India’s best-loved scripture approaches Sri Krishna’s message from an entirely fresh perspective, showing its deep allegorical meaning and also its down-to-earth practicality. This commentary makes these deep teachings so accessible that it truly has the potential to bring millions to God, as Yogananda predicted.
Unbelievably, Kriyananda finished this work—comprising as it did well over six hundred pages—in less than two months! To everyone, himself included, it seemed a miracle. “Master’s thoughts poured effortlessly into my mind,” Swami Kriyananda related, “helping me to fill page after page with deep insights and inspiration. I have a very clear memory, and can recall vividly the days I spent in my Master’s company, reading his entire manuscript, and helping him with its editing. I said to him at the time, ‘Sir, this is the most wonderful thing I have ever read!’”
