Paramhansa Swami Yogananda: Life-portrait and Reminiscences Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sri Sailendra Bejoy Dasgupta had the great good fortune to be accepted at the age of 19 as a disciple by Swami Sriyukteshvar Giriji Maharaj. He sat at the great Swami's feet as an eminent and beloved student for the next six years, until Swamiji's passing in 1935. Sri Dasguptaji had written this very manuscript near the end of his life during the months of October 1983 through January 1984. He closed his eyes to this world shortly afterwards, in March 1984. Yoga Niketan translated the manuscript into English and first published it in the year 2006. Swami Satyananda Giriji Maharaj, eminent and revered disciple of Swami Sriyukteshvar has written the following: "During the time that Yoganandaji was in India [after returning from America], Sailendra Bejoy was with him practically all day every day and attended to him in many different ways. Swamiji had a great wish that he would take Sailendra Bejoy to America. Even after [Yoganandaji] went back to America, he wrote to me about this many times. But at that time, Sailendra Bejoy did not particularly have much interest in that direction." And also: "With him was Bishnu Charan, nephew Ajit-da, Bijoy Mullick, Ananda Lahiri, Sailen Dasgupta and another one or two people. Because of my illness, I had written to Swamiji that Sailendra should work as his attendant in my place. Swamiji had also received Sailen with truly great affection." ~ YOGANANDA SANGA (The Company of Yogananda): As I have seen and understood Paramahansa Swami Sri Yogananda by Swami Satyananda

Synopsis:

'The writer of this book gathered most of the material for this book directly from his personal talks with Swami Yoganandaji himself, as well as from personal talks with Yoganandaji's childhood companion Satyanandaji and Swamiji's relatives, friends and students. But most importantly, this writer was made aware of many hitherto unknown things via three particularly essential ways. First: this writer was blessed with Yoganandaji's affection and trust. Second: this writer was directly initiated by Swamiji's guru Sriyukteshvarji and he was regularly in Sriyukteshvarji's physical company. During this time, this writer was privileged to hear his Gurudev speak descriptively about Yoganandaji carrying out his duties when he was still living in India, as well as Sriyukteshvarji's own feelings at the time and the Divine Grace around such activities. And third: this writer was the exceptional recipient of Swami Satyanandaji's great affection and trust. At an incalculably precious moment in a time when the secret methods of Kriya Yoga sadhana were being spread in India and subsequently in the world, the goddess of fate placed upon this writer this undertaking.'-From the Dedication
