Paramahansa Yogananda (person)
Return to Paramahansa Yogananda (person)
Paramahansa Yogananda. A yogi (think "OM", not health club faddism). Came to US from India, early 20th century, and established an organization/ashram in California (which has continued since his death, under the auspices of Self-Realization Fellowship). Was one of the "magic people" on the cover of Sgt Pepper, and quite popular during the Guru Boom of the 60s/70s. Gary Wright (of "Dream Weaver" fame) was a devotee. He was on Carlos Santana's shortlist, losing out to Sri Chinmoy.
