Autobiographie d'un Yogi. Paramahansa Yogananda

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 begins with his childhood family life, to finding his guru, to becoming a monk and establishing his teachings of Kriya Yoga meditation. The book continues in 1920 when Yogananda accepts an invitation to speak in a religious congress in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. He then travels across America lecturing and establishing his teachings in Los Angeles, California. In 1935 he returns to India for a yearlong visit. When he returns to America, he continues to establish his teachings, including writing this book.

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.

It has been in print for over sixty-five years and translated into at least thirty-four languages by Self-Realization Fellowship. It has been highly acclaimed as a spiritual classic including being designated by Philip Zaleski, while he was under the auspices of HarperCollins Publishers, as one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century."[2] According to Project Gutenberg, the first edition is in public domain and at least five publishers are reprinting it and four post it free for online reading.

Le Messie Récalcitrant

Donald Shimoda est un messie qui quitte son rôle (ainsi que son travail de mécanicien dans un garage) après s'être aperçu que les gens préfèraient être divertis par ses miracles plutôt que d'en comprendre le message. Il rencontre Richard, un pilote également, et commence à lui transmettre ses connaissances et lui apprendre à réaliser des "miracles".
De nombreuses citations sont tirés du Manuel du Messie dont la particularité est qu'il n'a pas de numéro de pages. La raison est que ce livre va s'ouvrir à la page où le lecteur trouvera conseil ou les réponses aux doutes ou aux questions qu'il se pose.

Oversoul Seven Trilogy, Jane Roberts

Read this and you will never be the same again! Unlike anything else I have ever read, the Oversoul 7 trilogy stands alone, and in my top 5 books of all time. Cosmic truths presented in fictional format, but NOT cheesy or contrived like most 'New Age fiction.' You know what I mean - those books that have a story just to provide an excuse for New Age preaching. blech. It's great when it works, but it rarely works. Well this time it works! Jane Roberts pulls it off, and pulls it off quite well! Read Oversoul and your dreams will come alive. You will look at every sunflake with new appreciation. Your sense of time and space will be forever altered. You will grasp at last the paradox of nonlinear time (ie, 'time travel'). You will meet unforgettable characters and remember them fondly many years later (the hallmark of a great book). And, you'll have fun reading it.
