The year was 1979. I was living in Israel and had just begun meditating (Transcendental Meditation) and a fellow TM meditator and friend lent me Autobiography of a Yogi that had been lent to her by a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
I put it away for a few months and, at the beginning of November of 1979, I went on a weekend TM meditation retreat. Shortly after I got back from the retreat I started reading the book. I was shaken to the very core of my being and at various places in the book …found myself…sobbing uncontrollably. I was not only absolutely convinced that every single word in this book was true but that it was “bringing to my remembrance” truths that I had once known but long forgotten. – Nathen G.
