Throughout history, few men have left an indelible mark on humanity as profound as Saint Francis, the humble, poor man from Assisi. After a worldly life as a youth, he gave up wealth and social position to embrace a spiritual life of poverty and service. Paramahamsa Prajnanananda explores the great Saint’s compassion, courage, and commitment to his chosen life lived in imitation of Jesus Christ.
 
Paramahamsa Prajnanananda is a world-renowned monk, teacher, and Kriya Yoga master who uses a simple, succinct, and candid style to communicate profound wisdom in a delightful manner. He established Hariharananda Balashram, a residential school for poor and orphan children in India, and has sponsored several other projects that promote spiritual education, social and health services, and philanthropic works around the world. Prajnananada has written and translated numerous books on spiritual topics, including A Transformation of the Heart: The Path of Saint Francis.
