Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0876122659, Hardcover)Mejda is a delightful and absorbing life portrait of this beloved world teacher. Written from the author's unique perspective as the younger brother of Paramahansa Yogananda, whom he affectionately called Mejda - the Bengali term for one's second eldest brother - it provides an intimate account of the early years of one of the great spiritual leaders of our time. For the millions of readers whose lives have been touched by Yogananda's spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, this book can open a new window on his astonishing life.
Relating many previously unpublished stories, this fascinating biography presents a fresh view of numerous incidents recounted in Autobiography of a Yogi. As Sananda Lal Ghosh explains, Paramahansaji was naturally reticent about referring to his own spiritual attainments when writing his autobiography. Mejda offers a vivid, firsthand chronicle of his remarkable years in India.
From this engrossing narrative a new portrait emerges of "the Father of Yoga in the West" - a radiant spiritual personality whose life was an inspiring testament to the ageless truth and vitality of India's universal science of God-realization.
