Mukunda Lal Ghosh, who later came to be known as Paramahansa Yogananda, was an Indian yogi and spiritual guru. He became one of the most influential voices in spirituality, meditation and Kriya Yoga in the world during his lifetime. Yogananda studied at Srerampore College and it was during his time at the college that he became a regular visitor to the 'Yukteshwar Ashram.' He became a monastic Swami. After relocating to the United States in 1920, he became far more influential and well-known, particularly after establishing the ‘Self Realization Fellowship.' During his time in the United States, he also became acquainted with some of the most important public figures of the time and that helped in further spreading his spiritual message. Yogananda’s most important work as a yogi is the book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi,' in which he laid down his own ideas on meditation and yoga. The book made meditation and yoga hugely popular in the Western world and started a sort of revolution that has endured to this day. His thoughts still bring solace to disturbed minds and crippled hearts.
