I like your question as it fits me extremely well.
I was at home one day in October 1982, when a book dropped onto the floor after having been pushed through the flap of my letterbox. It is called The Path: Autobiography of a Western Yogi. (31 years later, I still have it)
I picked up this book and began to read, and I did not stop until I was finished. More importantly, I felt totally different, long before I finished. 31 years later, I am still following the Path that Swami Kriyananda taught and have even written my own book: My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings.
I now meditate, am now a God-lover and servant of humanity, and I get tremendous joy in all I do. You may find my book and perhaps also Swami Kriyananda's on amazon.co.uk.
