Who Wrote the Footnotes in Autobiography of a Yogi?


I am greatly enjoying Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi. Could you please tell me who wrote the footnotes that accompany the text? Thank you very much.

Dear Anthony,

Yes, it’s a fantastic book.

Most footnotes were probably inserted by Tara Mata, Yogananda’s editor, to clarify points. She was a very learned and scholarly lady. However, nobody can know exactly which ones were Yogananda’s and which ones were hers.

Do you read the original 1946 edition? I’d recommend it.

All the best,
