AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an
unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and
meditation to the West in the 1920s. 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. (Apparently, it was the only book that Steve
Jobs had on his iPad.) 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, the documentary examines the world of yoga,
modern and ancient, east and west, and explores why millions today have
turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material
world in pursuit of self-realization.
