Awaken – The life of Jogananda / Film screening at Urania
Awaken – The Life of Jogananda is not your typical biography of the Hindu swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, has sold millions of copies worldwide. It is an ideal read for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts alike. (Interestingly, it was the only book on Steve Jobs’ iPad.) By bringing his teachings on enlightenment to the people and sharing the struggles of his own journey, Yogananda has made the ancient Vedic teachings understandable to a modern audience. As a result, he has gained many followers and inspires millions who practice yoga today.

“This clean documentary is entertaining and compelling, using real footage to take viewers through the life of a saint from the moment she experienced the first impressions of her life in the womb to the moment she left her body in 1952 at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, reciting a poem in front of an audience. Between these two life events, this saint changed the Western world.” (From the Maui Film Festival website)
Filmed over three years with participants from 30 countries around the world, the documentary explores the worlds of modern and ancient, Eastern and Western yoga. It reveals why millions of people today are turning their attention inward, breaking through the barriers of the material world in their search for self-realisation.
