Phil Goldberg

The Legacy of Yogananda:
Lessons from a Miraculous Life

The author of such celebrated books as The Intuitive Edge, Roadsigns on the Spiritual Path, and American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation: How Indian Spirituality Changed the West, returns to the Inside Edge to speak about his latest project: The Life of Yogananda: The Story of the Yogi Who Became the First Modern Guru. Millions have read Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi, but that iconic memoir leaves out a tremendous amount. Phil’s book, the first definitive biography of the superstar teacher, fills the gaps with information not even devoted Yogananda disciples know. He will share those fascinating details with us, and explain the vital lessons we can take from Yogananda’s remarkable life to deepen our own.
