A Book that made an impression
Autobiography of a Yogi -Being of a family that is highly spiritual in nature, I read this book first when I was a teen at my Dad’s recommendation. I didn’t appreciate it or understand it much at that point in time.
I was strangely drawn to read it again when I was in my late 30s and going through a difficult patch in life. This re-focused my thoughts towards the larger picture in life – spiritual evolution. It made me pause and realise that if I could ‘control my mind’ I could find happiness that went beyond the day to day pettiness that fills our lives. This book helped re-establish my faith in my Guru – and the fact that spiritual growth is available to all – and that ultimately it is upto you to make it happen – whilst continuing to live in a material world and living upto our worldly obligations.
