“AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda,” a film by Oscar-nominee Paola di Florio and Sundance winner Lisa Leeman.
Indian mystic Paramahansa Yogananda brought yoga and meditation to the West in 1920 and wrote the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” a go-to book for seekers from George Harrison to Steve Jobs. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern audience and led millions onto the path of self-realization.
