“Good books are your best friends. Through the writings of the great ones, you can commune with them”. – Paramhansa Yogananda
We all know that spiritual books, especially those of the great Masters, are precious jewels: they are instruments not only for the intellect, but above all for receiving enlightened vibrations. Yogananda, for instance, affirmed to have consciously infused his vibrations into the Autobiography of a yogi. This is why it is such a great treasure.
Yogananda Edizioni’s mission is to publish and spread throughout Europe the books of Paramhansa Yogananda, of his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, and of other devotees and teachers of the path of Kriya Yoga. We are committed to keeping the immortal masterpieces of our Master alive, and to publishing each year new books that will reach bookshops throughout Italy, thanks to the collaboration with our distributor Giunti.
In 2022 we would like to propose five luminous new books:
Yogi Junior. Yoga e meditazioni per ragazzi felici (Yoga Junior. Yoga and meditations for happy children): teaching yoga to children with the new Cards of Light by Arathi Giannò;
Come affrontare il cambiamento (How to face change) by Yogananda: containing the power of his authentic words;
Un tocco di pace (Touch of Peace) by Nayaswami Jyotish and Devi: to help develop this quality that is much needed in today’s world;
Come manifestare i desideri dell’anima (How to manifest the desires of the soul): a book on our power of manifestation, according to the teachings of Yogananda, written by Sahaja Ellero;
Vivere Patanjali (Living Patanjali) explains how to apply the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in daily life, by Jayadev Jaerschky.
Each book will be a precious pearl for you, and our wish is that they may be useful for your inner and outer life.

Sharing part of our life with you
From an outer point of view, the birth of Yogananda Edizioni last year was an additional challenge, and it was no small feat. It took a great deal of energy, faith, superconsciousness, friendship among ourselves and also much support from all of you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your presence. You are angels to us!
In general, in order for us to maintain a luminous and efficient publishing house and to have our books reach the national market, constant effort is required, that we offer with joy, and with much creativity and determination as well. If you feel inspired to support us, you can become a “Friend of the books” and receive our publications at home.
From an inner point of view, this particular moment is propelling us all toward considerable personal growth. The central theme is always…love. If we stray from love at this time, it means we have lost. If, however, we increase the love in our hearts, we will have overcome the challenge.
Our books give us all the useful spiritual instruments needed to remain centered, inspired and to keep an open heart: meditation, breathing, Kriya Yoga, affirmations, energization exercises, asanas, the right attitudes for the yogi…Now is the time to apply them and to discover how much love we have developed inwardly.
We thank all of you for standing by us and for sharing so much joy and inspiration through our books.
United in our love for books, in Divine Friendship,
Your friends from Yogananda Edizioni
Deodan, Jayadev, Maitreyi, Manuela, Massimo, Nandini, Regi, Sahaja, Shivani, Tejindra
