Summary of the Book 'A Series Of Lessons In Gnani Yoga':

William Walker Atkinson (December 5 1862 ? November 22 1932) was an attorney merchant publisher and author as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement. He is also known to have been the author of the pseudonymous works attributed to Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka. Due in part to Atkinsons intense personal secrecy and extensive use of pseudonyms he is now largely forgotten despite having obtained mention in past editions of Whos Who in America Religious Leaders of America and several similar publications?and having written more than 100 books in the last 30 years of his life. His works have remained in print more or less continuously since 1900. http://worldcat. org/identities/lccn-n88-661832http://worldcat. org/identities/lccn-n87-863357
