Obama isn’t Lincoln, Lindbergh Was, says Lincoln Author


San Jose, CA January 18, 2007 — One American author takes particular and unusual exception to the many comparisons of Senator Barack Obama with Abraham Lincoln.

“Nothing against Obama,” says Richard Salva, who is considering voting for the Illinois senator if nominated, “but Abraham Lincoln was reborn as Charles Lindbergh. Since Lindbergh died 13 years after Obama was born, I strongly disagree with these news reports that announce ‘Obama IS Lincoln.’”

Salva’s controversial and critically acclaimed book, Soul Journey from Lincoln to Lindbergh, is based on a statement by Paramhansa Yogananda—the great master of yoga, and author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi—who said that President Lincoln had been an advanced Himalayan yogi in a past life, and that he was reborn as the famous aviator, Charles Lindbergh.

Soul Journey highlights nearly 500 astonishing and significant connections between the two great Americans. These connections span every aspect of human life—from the physical to the psychological, interpersonal and spiritual—and provide convincing evidence that Lincoln came back as Lindbergh.

By drawing parallels to the life and words of Lincoln, the author explains how past-life experiences influenced Lindbergh—thus answering questions about the aviator that have puzzled historians: such as why Lindbergh fought so hard to prevent America from entering WW II.

Two out of five Americans today believe in reincarnation or consider it a possibility—yet few are aware of how past-life patterns affect them. Through clear and persuasive parallels between the lives of Lincoln and Lindbergh, Soul Journey’s readers discover how the hidden laws of karma and reincarnation impact their daily lives.

Soul Journey has received praise from the critics, including Five Stars from Foreword Clarion Reviews and Midwest Book Review. And Swami Kriyananda, disciple of Yogananda, has stated that Soul Journey “deserves to become a classic.”

Soul Journey from Lincoln to Lindbergh (ISBN: 0977238105, 344 pages w/photographs and illustrations, 5.5“ x 8.5” quality paperback) is available for $16.95 in bookstores, through, or by contacting Crystar Press at
