Paramhansa Yogananda was born on January 5, 1893 and left his body on March 7th, 1952. Yogananda came to America in 1920 to spiritualize the West, not to Indianize it. He loved both the deep spirituality of India and the tremendous energy of America. He felt the time has come for India and America to work together and to set new directions for our planet. Yogananda was an incarnation of divine love. When asked what would take his place when he was gone, he said: “Only love can take my place.”
