The practice of affirmation is very ancient and includes the discipline of Sanskrit Mantra. This classic on the power and uses of affirmation explains the laws for harnessing the power of focused thought. The first part reveals the relationship between matter/energy and mind and how one can set in motion the healing power of spirit. It also explains consciousness and matter/energy as vibratory expressions of spirit. This section on the theory of healing includes the chapters: Why Affirmations Work; Life Energy Causes the Cure; Healing Body, Mind and Soul; and, Nature of Creation. It is emphasized that thought needs soul conviction in order to yield the best results. Part Two is titled Methods Of Practice with the chapters Technique of Affirmation (with two photographs – one demonstrating the posture for affirmation and the other for that of meditation, and Scientific Healing Affirmations, which includes specific affirmations for various physical, mental or spiritual needs. Some of the purposes/conditions for which affirmations are provided include general healing, guidance, wisdom, material success, spiritual success and eyesight, stomach, teeth, purity, curing bad habits, freedom. There is an index, plus a short biography of the author plus a portrait. This title has been in print for many decades and it’s easy to see why – it is a very authoritative but easily understood guide to this ancient practice. Free of esoteric jargon, it explains all aspects of the discipline clearly and comprehensively. For a very different approach to the subject, I recommend Stuart Wilde’s book Affirmations. Reading both Yogananda and Wilde will tell you all you need to know about the power of affirmation and how it can improve your life.

The book is interesting, but of very small size. But recommended. Reflect other reviews that first part is more interestingly

The Book is Good, but this Kindle edition is very poor, images seem to be missing and paragraphs spread Over multiple pages (one sentence per page). No table of contents either.

The book itself is very good, but this digital version is incredibly bad. It spreads out over way too many pages wich makes it ubreadable.

I read the readers'comments which were praising the book and I bought it. This is a very small book. The first part is interesting but I could not relate at all to the second part, the affirmations. The language is either stilted or flowery, at times truly difficult and just about impossible to remember by heart. I doubt very much that it ever was written by Yogananda as it is so different from his autobiography, but his name was used to help selling it. There are plenty of much better books of affirmations on the market.

An interesting little book that inspires you to think well of yourself, as well as, others. Definitly worth the read.

Superbly written, easy to read and digest, and worth reading and re-reading many times.
