Autobiography of a Yogi

I would just like to ask you, if you have read this wonderful book Autobiography of a Yogi- and if you know if it’s actually true, and if all those events did actually happen… or was it written as a teaching book…or both?

In one chapter of the book Yogananda explains that Light is the only thing that is infinite, therefore, is Light and the Unified Field the same thing, or is Light still a manifestation of the Unified Field?
It also bothered me that the Yogis seem more interested with the teaching of boys – surely having experienced the “God Force” as themselves, they wouldn’t make the distinction between male and female?

This book is an amazing book, and am about to read it again!
