Talk on “Steve Jobs’ last gift and yoga meditation”

What does yoga meditation have to do with the late Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple and one of the most creative and innovative entrepreneurs of our time? Before his passing in 2011 he made arrangements that all those attending his memorial service at Stanford University should receive a copy of “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda, a spiritual classic which he said he had read once a year since he had first become acquainted with the book. “There has been nothing before, written in English or in any other European language, like this presentation of Yoga” writes Columbia University Press, while the New York Times defines it “A rare account”.

Students and staff of Henley Business School are welcome to join an evening event dedicated to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952) an Indian yogi who in 1920 founded Self Realization Fellowship for the dissemination of definite yoga techniques to enable man to achieve his full potential (see www.yogananda-srf.org for more information.)

The event will include a video recording of a talk by Brother Anandamoy, a senior monk of Self Realization Fellowship, in which he illustrates how yoga principles are the common foundation of religions of East and West. The video will be followed by an audio recording of a chapter of Autobiography of a Yogi narrated by Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley.
