Recently, the Indian skipper shared a photo on his official Instagram account where he revealed the source that changed his life. In the photo, Kohli showed a book the ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ written by Paramhansa Yogananda.

In the caption he wrote, “I love this book. A must read for all those who are brave enough to let their thoughts and ideologies be challenged.

Autobiography of a Yogi is an autobiography of Paramahansa Yogananda which was first published in 1946. The book is an introduction to the methods of attaining God-realization and it showcases the life of Paramahansa Yogananda and his encounters with spiritual figures of both the East and West.
