Awake: The Life of Yogananda Trailer

Just stumbled across this beautiful trailer of an upcoming documentary on Paramahsama Yogananda, famously know for his book, “The Autobiography of a Yogi“. Autobiography of a Yogi describes Yogananda’s spiritual search for enlightenment, in addition to encounters with notable spiritual figures such as Therese Neumann, Anandamayi Ma, Mohandas Gandhi, Nobel laureate in literature Rabindranath Tagore, noted plant scientist Luther Burbank (the book is ‘Dedicated to the Memory of Luther Burbank, An American Saint’), famous Indian scientist Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose and Nobel laureate in physicis Sir C. V. Raman. One notable chapter of this book is “The Law of Miracles”, where he gives scientific explanations for seemingly miraculous feats. He writes: “the word ‘impossible’ is becoming less prominent in man’s vocabulary.”

Considering the fact that there isn’t much video footage on him, this trailer is really well edited. Let’s hope the documentary will be available soon for viewing, perhaps on some Video on Demand channel on the web?

In the mean time, enjoy this trailer.
