The reason.

Upon opening the book, she found the following written in the center of the blank page:

 

 

There is a reason you have this book. There is a reason it found its way to you, now.

 

 

 

She borrowed it from the library.

 

Years later, a classmate asked her, ‘Have you read Autobigraphy of a Yogi?’ Such was the intensity of the urge to read it in those few moments, that she downloaded the book on her computer in class itself. Staring at the cover, she could think of only one thing.

There is a reason I have this book. There is a reason I’m reading it now.

Paramahansa Yogananda was a yogi and a guru who introduced Kriya Yoga to the world through his above mentioned autobiography. He talks about how he met his guru, life’s lessons, blessings, and experiences.

She was not a professional writer, but would sometimes vent her feelings on paper. Now she could write about her guru.
