  Hey Steve. I thought I was so smart starting this thread but I failed to state why I like the said part in the great book. The area this part is in the Materializing a Palace in the Himalayas chapter 34, the third page close to the bottom of the page.

  Tigers howled nearby, but my heart was free from fear. I suppose that I like this part because by the grace of God I became fearless when I was eighteen I think. I had a spiritual experience before I finished reading Autobiography of a Yogi the first time I was reading it (I have total read it six times, I plan on read # 7 after I reveive Kriya initiation). Years before my spiritual experience as a young boy not even ten years old I drown and saw the other side. The good place. Because of these two blessings I became fearless, I try not to be egotistical about it.

  I found the story of how Lahiri Mahasaya met his angelic guru Babaji so majical. Even as I read AY the first time the story seemed so real. The part I mentioned was one of the parts that just stood out to me. Autobiography of a Yogi is an incredible book. I never doubted any area of the book, not even once. Every time I read AY it motivated me to start back meditating. Time and time again I let the world beat me down. I thank God that nowadays because this little frog never gave up I have, in a sense, hopped out of the pail. I am starting to see the world as a dream. Without divine assistance such as my being led to AY and to actually read it I would not have begun to see the nature of human beings as holy. True union with spirit, as Yoga is, is a path that many continue to come to because of our beloved Autobiography of a Yogi.

  Now that I think about it, this forum is for me divine assistance. There are other boards, good ones, including one that is huge, but for some reason this one for me is the most comfortable. I'll still wander the Web but this isn't a bad hang out at all. It is a church in a sense. There are certainly people who frequent this board who could make a good holy person, like a priest or priestess. We all learn from each other. Even if someone doesn't learn anything for years it helps to read from or participate with friends on the same path.

  If anyone who reads this post has not read Autobiography of a Yogi I encourage you to do so. In addition to being a spiritual journey of true greatness there is adventure as well as a little humor. Taking it one step further, if one were to read Autobiography of a Yogi and then take Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons and practice then for 100 days that person would know for certain there is a God. Very rarely in todays world can a person be offered proof of the devine power. Reading the mentioned spiritual classic is the first step. I wish you the best my friends.

9 Years later I am fond of this post and thank you for your contributions! Time is a peculiar concept. I hope we are blessed with the radiance of the gold wolf again, even if he is just peeking over the hilltop or quietly roaming these fields at night.
