The Book that Changed Steve Jobs and Shaped Apple Inc!

Steve Jobs with Autobiography of a Yogi in Hand

In 1974 Steve Jobs traveled to India with a friend after reading Paramhansa Yogananda’s “Autobiography of a Yogi”. The trip turned out to be a disappointment but it also influenced him to take bigger risks in his life. He left Atari, a rather stable job for him and actually funded his trip. On return he was motivated to form what became Apple with Steve Wozniak. The trip and the book helped him believe he could invent things that no one had ever dreamed of.

Marc Benioff, one of Steve’s closer friends said “Steve Jobs’s keys to success were the spiritual qualities he had developed, He went to India, and he had this incredible realization that his intuition was his greatest gift, and that he needed to look at the world from the inside out.”
I have found over the years some of the most successful people in business know Autobiography of a Yogi. I also found some of the most successful scientists in the world read the book, I found a copy listed as one of Albert Einstein’s books at the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. I was told he read to book more than a few times.
Over 500 copies of Yogananda’s classic autobiography were handed out at Steve’s memorial, it was part of his explicit instructions he left behind.
The book is a compilation of all the experiences of an ordinary human being on the path of enlightenment. It's one of the most beautiful books in spiritual space. Those experiences if absorbed from the core of your heart in a genuine search, seeker will also experience a gradual/sudden transformations themselves :)
Even looking at the eyes of Paramhansa Yogananda at the cover and inside the book, you can feel the penetrating gaze piercing through you.
The excerpts about his Guru, and many mystics that the world will remain oblivious to, are abundant with gratitude and it also flows through you if the reading is sincere :)… However not getting stuck with the experiences but living through his life by the book, one must carve out their own path!
