Yogananda documentary

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.

Here is the full New York Times review of AWAKE

    • Hey Marie – yes I hope to be able to see the film while I’m in northern california next week! I hope you enjoy the book. It’s a classic. hugs and busses to you!!


    • I’ve made an approach to the filmmakers to meet. Perhaps if I do, I’ll see if they want distribution in Australia. The film could do quite well here I think…


      • So I have to learn yet another aspect of this modern world we live in, eh?! 🙂
        I sort of like to sit back in the cinema or my sofa to take it all in in comfort – what happened to that world, I want to know!!
