Looking down from Paramahansa Yogananda’s house and meditation gardens there’s a point-break, Swami’s (named after his death). His gardens and home are located twenty-five miles north of downtown San Diego in Encinitas.
Paramahansa Yogananda, an Indian yogi and guru, introduced millions of westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga through his book, Autobiography of a Yogi.
Born in Bengali as Mukunda Lal Ghosh on January 5, 1893, and died as Paramahansa Yogananda on March 7, 1952, of congestive heart failure, his remains are resting at a private cemetery in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California.
Yogananda founded an ashram (a hermitage, monastic community, or another place of religious retreat) on this 23-acre estate in Encinitas, California.
Imagine sailing at Swami’s this very minute.
Or standing in one of Paramahansa Yogananda’s gardens this very moment — you can do it if you try. Namaste!
He died of congestive heart failure. His remains are resting in privately-owned, Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California.
