Dear Mansi,

Although Yogananda did not specifically write a book on education, he put into manifestation many of his ideas regarding this important topic. One of his first endeavors in India was starting a school.

However, his disciple, Swami Kriyananda, brought together Yogananda's ideas on education and presented them in the book, Education for Life. This is probably the best resource on this topic.

In divine friendship,
