How to Be a Success: The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda, Volume 4
Is there a power that can reveal hidden veins of riches and uncover treasures of which we never dreamed? Is there a force that we can call upon to give success, health, happiness, and spiritual enlightenment? The saints and sages of India taught that there is such a power.
Now, in this volume of all-new, never-before-released material, Paramhansa Yogananda—who has millions of followers around the world—shares how we can achieve the highest success with material and spiritual efficiency.
This is the fourth volume in The Wisdom of Yogananda series. The series features writings not available elsewhere. They capture the Master's expansive and compassionate wisdom, his sense of fun, and his practical spiritual guidance.

How Awaken Your True Potential: The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda, Volume 7
Are you ready to take serious steps to discover the hidden resources of divine joy, love, and power within you? Paramhansa Yogananda, one of the best-loved spiritual teachers of modern times, offers step-by-step guidance to help you awaken your true potential. You will discover that hidden within you is untold power, and you will learn how to take steps daily to live life with greater joy and meaning.
Yogananda rouses you to awaken your true nature, beginning by looking at the habits that hold you back and how best to change them. He gives practical steps to prepare you for the inner journey of awakening. The book includes not only the meditation technique that he calls “one of India’s greatest gifts to the world,” but many other techniques for achieving inner stillness and realization. Yogananda also shows you how, once you begin to discover the power of your soul nature, to use higher consciousness to live more productively and successfully.
This priceless handbook is drawn from courses and articles he wrote in the 1920s and 1930s, and most of the material is not published elsewhere. The book is organized in a potent, easy-to-absorb format. (regular price: $11.95)
The Man Who Refused Heaven: The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda, Volume 4
Why is humor so deeply appreciated? Laughter is one of the great joys of life. Joy is fundamental to who we are.
Yogananda translated the classic definition of God given by Swami Shankarananda, “Sat-chid-ananda,” as, “Ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new joy.” Yogananda added the concept of “new” to the ancient definition. Yogananda explained that God became His creation, which means that all of life exists, is conscious, and has the quality of joy innately within it. This is why human beings universally seek happiness. It is our nature to be happy, and the search for happiness motivates everyone.
A master is one who has united his consciousness with Satchidananda, and so you see in the masters profound joy. Some share this joy outwardly through their personalities; others may be more serious outwardly, but great joy sparkles in their eyes and is felt in their presence. In Yogananda's magnificent poem, “Samadhi,” he describes his experience in the highest state of consciousness, ending with the lines:
Eternity and I, one united ray.
A tiny bubble of laughter, I
Am become the Sea of Mirth Itself.
Yogananda’s experience of life, his experience of the goal of all life, was filled with joy. He lived in joy always, and sought to awaken it in others. Though he could be intensely serious and deep as appropriate, he also could express the greatest joy, often in unexpected situations.
The humor in this book arose spontaneously from Yogananda’s deep joy. Sometimes he used humor to express an important spiritual principle. Sometimes he used it in training the disciples, to help them learn in a way that reasoned lectures could never achieve.
Most of the humor in this book was taken from Yogananda’s writings. Also included are experiences with the master that demonstrate his playful spirit. These were written by Swami Kriyananda, from his years of being trained personally by Yogananda, or from stories that were shared with him by other close disciples.
The message of this book is both playful and serious. The serious message is that joy can be found within us always. We should look for it there and share it with others. (regular price: $12.95)
