Secret bible of all new age Gurus

The book has all the secrets of life and spirituality which you were looking for. Think and grow rich, power of thought, mind control, manifestation, Kriya Yoga and so on


The Book Autobiography of A Yogi was not written for the purpose of creating hundreds of fake new age gurus, but actual experiences of a an enlightened person and his travel around India. Steve Jobs loved it and apparently read once every year. Autobiography of A Yogi is a book that the youtube gurus wouldn’t want you to read. Autobiography of A Yogi also is a starting point of Kriya Yoga, about which you cant find in detail on the internet, because no one tells it openly.

Here are some of the secrets revealed in the book. This book is not a one time read, but you may have to read it every year, like Steve Jobs.

  • Maya  Maya is the force that creates limitations and divisions in the immeasurable and inseparable (Ram – Sita)
  • Prana – Sensory stimuli are produced by vibratory vibrations in electrons and protons. The vibrations are in turn regulated by prana, or the subtle life-forces or finer than atomic energies. If you can master prana, you may master the 5 senses.
    • Prana is an expression of the Aum vibration of the omnipresent soul. Man’s attachment to the body is due to the reflection of soul on to the fleshly cells. Man mistakes the effect for a cause and imagines the body to have a life of its own. Breath is the link between body and the soul
  • Power of thought – Thought is a force, even as electricity or gravitation. Whatever mind believes in intensely, it would instantly come to pass. 
    • All thoughts vibrate eternally in the cosmos. By deep concentration, a master is able to detect the thoughts of any man, living or dead.
  • Aryan theory – Emigrants from India settled in various parts of Europe and Asia spreading the Aryan speech and folklore for example Lithuanian tongue is in many ways similar to Sanskrit.
  • How to let go of ego – Self Scrutiny, relentless observance of one’s thoughts crumbles the fattest ego. Man finally turns to the creator and asks in pain ‘ Why Lord, why ?’
  • Kriya Yoga – breath-link between body and the soul is severed at will. It is also referred twice by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita.
  • Shiva Linga, its circumference, beginning less and endless is a symbol of the infinite. Holy shrines in Tarakeswar and elsewhere are rightly venerated as nuclear centres of spiritual power
  • How enlightenment feels like ? My ordinary frontal vision was now changed to a vast spherical sight, simultaneously all-perceptive…All objects within my panoramic gaze trembled and vibrated like quick motion pictures.
  • Astrology – It is not a question of belief; the scientific attitude one should take on any subject is whether it is true… Astrology is the study of man’s response to planetary stimuli… A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with its individual karma.
  • Human Body – The spinal cord is like an upturned tree, with man’s hair as its roots
  • Yoga – Yoga is a method for restraining the natural turbulence of thoughts. Patanjali defines yoga as neutralisation of the alternating waves of consciousness. The book then also lists eightfold path of Yoga.
  • Shastras – Shastras are four of classes – shruti, smriti, purana, and tantra. Shrutis are directly heard (vedas) , Smritis are remembered lore (mahabharata, ramayana), Puranas, 18 in number are ancient allegories, Tantras mean rites or rituals
  • Ahimsa – Ahimsa means removal of the desire to kill – Patanjali
  • Life after death – After physical death, man remains in an astral world for 500 or 1000 years, there is no invariable rule about the length of time between incarnations, which is karmically predetermined.
    • Astral world is infinitely beautiful, clean, are and orderly.
    • Subtler astral heaven of Hiranyaloka’s inhabitants have already passed through the ordinary astral spheres, where nearly all beings from earth must go at earth…
  • Nirbikalpa samadhi – the yogi dissolves the last vestiges of material or earthly karma. But he may still have astral and causal karma to work out
  • Desire – Desire keeps physical, astral and causal bodies together. The unfulfilled desires are the root cause of all of man’s slavery. The man has undergo countless births  to emerge from his 3 bodies. Karma and desire also talked about in Book Review: Lord Hanuman Immortal talks
  • Morals by Sri Yukteswara
    • Look fear in the face and it will cease to trouble you
    • Attachment is blinding, it lends an imaginary halo of attractiveness to the object of desire
    • Good and Positive suggestions should instruct the sensitive ears of children. Their early ideas long remain sharply etched.
