Description

Encore: Bringing back some of the hottest documentaries for an encore presentation.

Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. Awake: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today. Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, this intriguing documentary looks at the world of yoga (modern and ancient, east and west) and explores why so many people have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.
