Autobiography of a Yogi book is Priceless and Yogananda is the "Trillion Dollar Yogi" behind the success of Steve Jobs/Apple his entire life. His Advanced Flow state (Peak Performance) Lessons are now being taught by Flow Expert Todd Denen at

SPIRITUAL vs religious dogma  .... thanks for stating YOGAnanda's teachings and book inspired Steve Jobs about actualizing ourselves, you are giving a great insight to people that just thought jobs just did whatever meditation he really invested himself in YOGAnanda's philosophy based on love kindness and understanding ...PEACE LOVE PROSPERITY KINDNESS & UNDERSTANDING TO U ALL!!!

Fantastic what Steve did! After reading this book over in 1993, I was so touched by it that I immediately sent off for the lessons from Self Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles. These beautiful teachings have changed my life, brought so much joy, love, purpose and even after 20 years of following them, the liberating truth in them resonates with my soul. I hope it does the same for everyone!

So even Steve Jobs followed Vedanta Sanatana Dharma(Hinduism). I always thought he didn't and was not interested, after his visit to India.

Divine Presence into today's technology...Cool!

beautiful...reminds me of the story of James Jesse Lynn from Utah (aka Rajarsi Janakananda) who was also practiced Self-Realization techniques taught by Paramahansa Yogananda...what an inspiring message of how balancing our lives with meditation... and our search for God can be accomplished along with incredible outward and material success...proof positive that the two are not mutually exclusive but rather indeed work in tandem with each other.

Aristotle said, "Happiness is when you are in the process of changing, your potentialities into actualities." Think of Beethoven, Einstein, Salk,! What is your Greatest Potentiality? Spiritually it is to become one with God's Love. See and hear through Christ's eyes and ears, Speak and act through Christ Conscientiousness.... Each of us are unique, with God Given Talents, Transform, Become, Realize!, and seek inner guidance. iamhe ur2

This book is an eye opener for all. The true, infinite nature of the human being emerges. I am glad that Steve Jobs acknowledged the sources of his inspiration to a community of thought leaders. The coming age should see mankind emerge and assume their true role.
