Swami Sri Yukteswar (1855-1936), whose westernly-known disciple was Paramahansa Yogananda, was a teacher of Kriya Yoga, the advanced form of raja (meditative) yoga that Paramahansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi) has made so popular in the west. This slender volume is nevertheless to be highly recommended to the serious student of yoga philosophy or raja practice, and especially to students of Kriya Yoga, for whom Sri Yukteswar's penetrating insights will fit together important puzzle-pieces of the yoga spiritual path. (Beginners to yoga philosophy and practice would be well advised first to read Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi", before Sri Yukteswar's "The Holy Science.")
Yukteswar Giri's only book stands alone in that it was commissioned by the great Babaji for a specific purpose.(see Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda).
The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved; and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures.
Autobiography of a Yogi introduces the reader to the life of Paramahansa Yogananda and his encounters with spiritual figures of both the East and West.
The book is an introduction to the methods of attaining God-realization and to the spiritual thought of the East, which had only been available to a few in 1946. The author claims that the writing of the book was prophesied long ago by the nineteenth-century master Lahiri Mahasaya.
Considered a modern spiritual classic, the book, one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century," has been translated into more than twenty languages and is widely used as a text and reference work in colleges and universities.
