“In his ‘how-to-live’ teachings, Paramahansa Yogananda has given to people of all cultures, races, and creeds the means to free themselves from physical, mental and spiritual inharmonies—to create for themselves a life of enduring happiness and all-around success.
The books in this series present Paramahansaji’s how-to-live wisdom on many subjects, providing readers with spiritual insight and practical keys for bringing into daily life the inner balance and harmony that is the essence of yoga. Through the practice of meditation and the universal principles of right action and right attitude highlighted in these books, one can experience every moment as an opportunity to grow in awareness of the Divine.
While each book addresses a distinct topic, one message resonates throughout the series: Seek God first. Whether speaking of creating fulfilling relationships, raising spiritual children, overcoming self-defeating habits, or any of the other myriad goals and challenges of modern living, Paramahansa Yogananda again and again refocuses our attention towards life’s highest attainment: Self-realization—knowing our true nature as divine beings. Through the inspiration and encouragement of his teachings, we learn how to live a truly victorious life—transcending limitations, fear, and suffering—by awakening to the infinite power and joy of our real Self: the soul.”

This is our third Note on one of Yogananda’s books/booklets.
As we discussed in the first two Notes on How to Be a Success and The Law of Success, I got into Yogananda and his work after getting more deeply into Michael Singer’s work. (See Notes on The Untethered Soul and Living Untethered.)
I got even *more* into Yogananda and his work after I learned that Steve Jobs re-read his Autobiography of a Yogi every year and gave a copy of it to his friends as the very last gift as they left his memorial service.
This is a tiny little booklet. As the title and sub-title suggest, it’s all about how to live fearlessly by bringing out your inner soul strength. Or, as we’d like to say: How to forge antifragile confidence by high fiving your inner daimon. It’s fantastic. Get a copy here.
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
