Few books among the many available consider self-improvement from a profound spiritual perspective. In Overcoming Character Liabilities, Sri Daya Mata provides practical guidance for applying Paramahansa Yogananda’s “how-to-live” principles to this difficult task. With insight, humor, and compassion she explains the subtle underlying causes of thoughts and behaviors we wish to avoid or change. “Never cease to keep on trying to do better, to spiritualize your life in every way. Remember, the only difference between a saint and a sinner is that the saint never gave up trying.”
Overcoming Character Liabilities is one of a series of booklets presenting inspiring and practical guidance from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, on how to live in a spiritually harmonious way—with grace, simplicity, and with an inner equanimity in the face of life’s seeming contradictions.
