Awake dvd
The Life of Yogananda

This is an unconventional biography about the Hindu swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Yogananda authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi – a best-selling go-to book for seekers, philosophers, and yoga enthusiasts today. He made Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience. Filmed over three years in 30 countries around the planet, this documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west, and explores why millions have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.
