Sri Yukteswar (1855-1935) was a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya, and Yogananda’s guru. He was an “incarnation of wisdom” with a keen intellect and discrimination.

In Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramhansa Yogananda describes his guru as follows:

He fitted the Vedic definition of a man of God. ‘Softer than the flower where kindness is concerned’ stronger than thunder, where principles are at stake.’ He taught by sublimity of example alone the true measure of a man.

Read Yoganandaji’s touching account of the last days of Sri Yukteswar, described in Autobiograhy of a Yogi.
