ABOUT ’AWAKE: THE LIFE OF YOGANANDA'
DOCUMENTARY - 87min - PG
An enlightening documentary, AWAKE: THE LIFE OF YOGANANDA is about Hindu mystic Paramahansa Yogananda who brought yoga and meditation to the West in 1920.
Yogananda was the author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, which became the go-to book for seekers and yoga enthusiasts 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.
Filmed over three years in over 30 countries, AWAKE examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West, and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards in pursuit of Self-Realisation.
By evoking the journey of the soul as it pushes its way through the oppression of the ego and delusion of the material world, the film creates an experiential immersion into the unseen realms.
AWAKE is ultimately the story of mankind itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.
