There’s a new film out – playing in selected theatres in America at the moment. It’s called AWAKE, about the life of Yogananda, the bloke who wrote Autobiography of a Yogi.
The New York Times says:
…the story itself is compelling, as is the testimony of devotees. It’s not surprising to see interviews with Ravi Shankar, Deepak Chopra and George Harrison (who died in 2001). It’s a bit more so to hear contemporary scientists marvel at Yogananda’s understanding of neuroplasticity decades before Western science considered it. Much is made of a report that the only book on Steve Jobs’s iPad was Yogananda’s “Autobiography of a Yogi.” That’s enough to make a modern soul look inward.
