When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as ´´a rare account´´. Newsweek pronounced it ´´fascinating´´. The San Francisco Chronicle declared, ´´Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who ´came to scoff´ may remain ´to pray.´´ Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East. This audio edition, featuring Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley´s masterful narration, contains the complete text of Paramahansa Yogananda´s life story, an absorbing account of a singular search for Truth. Yogananda describes his experiences with modern-day saints and illuminated masters of India, and presents a definitive introduction to the whole science and philosophy of Yoga. 1. Language: English.

Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to permanently live and teach in the West. In the 1920s, as he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his ´´spiritual campaigns´´, his enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls of America. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This audiobook, the version of which was first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West. Only rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda´s stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humor, lively stories, and practical common sense. Now, with this audiobook, the 1946 edition is again available, with all its inherent power, just as the great master of yoga first presented it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Swami Kriyananda.

True religion is extremely practical; it is, indeed, based entirely upon practice and not upon theory or speculation of any kind, for religion begins only where theory ends. Its object is to mold the character, unfold the divine nature of the soul, and make it possible to live on the spiritual plane, its ideal being the realization of Absolute Truth and the manifestation of Divinity in the actions of the daily life. 1.

In The Wit and Wisdom of Yogi Berra, author Phil Pepe takes Yogi from St. Louis to New York´s Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium, including all the stops along the way - from the days he put soles on women´s shoes to his induction into the Baseball´s Hall of Fame, when he coined one of his most remembered phrases: ´´I thank everybody for making this day necessary.´´ Phil Pepe explores Yogi Berra as a boy, player, hero, coach, manager, husband, and father, a buffoon and a human being. He relates all of the Berraisms in an absorbing treatment that is simultaneously comical, thoughtful, and biographical. Who can forget what Yogi said about a popular restaurant: ´´Nobody goes there anymore. It´s too crowded.´´ Or Yogi´s take on Little League Baseball? ´´I think it´s wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Pepe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/010064/bk_adbl_010064_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
A candid and nostalgic father-son memoir by Dale Berra, providing a unique perspective on his legendary Hall of Fame dad, the inimitable and highly quotable Yogi Berra. Everyone knows Yogi Berra, the American icon. He was the backbone of the New York Yankees through ten World Series Championships, managed the National League Champion New York Mets in 1973, and had an ingenious way with words that remains an indelible part of our lexicon. But no one knew him like his family did. My Dad, Yogi is Dale Berra´s chronicle of his unshakeable bond with his father, as well as an intimate portrait of one of the great sports figures of the 20th century.When Yogi wasn´t playing or coaching, or otherwise in the public eye, he was home in the New Jersey suburbs, spending time with his beloved wife, Carmen, and his three boys, Larry, Tim, and Dale. Dale presents - as only a son could - his family´s history, his parents´ enduring relationship, and his dad´s storied career. Throughout Dale´s youth, he had a firsthand look at the Major Leagues, often by his dad´s side during Yogi´s years as a coach and manager. The Berras´ lifelong family friends included Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Whitey Ford. It´s no coincidence that all three Berra sons were inspired to play sports constantly, and that all three became professional athletes, following in their dad´s footsteps. Dale came up with the Pittsburgh Pirates, contributing to their 1979 championship season and emerging as one of baseball´s most talented young players. After three strong seasons, Dale was traded to New York, briefly united with his dad in the Yankee dugout. But there was also an extraordinary challenge developing. Dale was implicated in a major cocaine scandal involving some of the biggest names in the sport, and his promising career was ultimately cut short by his drug problem. Yogi supported his son all along, eventually staging the intervention that would save Dale´s life, and 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dale Berra.
