" AWAKE - The Life of Yogananda "

Filmen är en biografi om Swamin Paramahamsa Yogananda (1893-1952).Han lärde ut meditation och Kriya yoga till miljontals västerlänningar under 1920-talet och 30-talet och än idag inspirerar yogisar världen över. Han är författare till en av de mest kända yogaböckerna: ”Autobiography of a Yogi” som har sålts i mer än fyra miljoner exemplar och översatts till 34 olika språk.

Yogananda hade ett stort inflytande på spridandet av yogan i väst. Han kom till USA 1922 där han lärde ut yoga och byggde upp The Self Realization Fellowship. 1946 skrev han boken En Yogis Självbiografi vilken räknas som en klassiker i den moderna yogiska litteraturen.

I filmen förekommer intervjuer med bland annat: Ravi Shankar, Deepak Chopra, Krishna Das, Bikram Choudhury, Russel Simmons, George Harrison och många fler.

”Autobiography of a Yogi” sägs vara den enda bok som Steve Jobs hade nedladdad på sin iPad.


AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about an Indian Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. This feature documentary explores the life and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who 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.

It was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad, and he arranged to give away 800 copies of it to the dignitaries who attended his memorial service. It was also a point of entry into Eastern mysticism for George Harrison, Russell Simmons and countless yogis. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and ultimately helping millions of seekers today to turn their attention inwards, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization..

Awake explores the life and teachings of Swami Paramahansa Yogananda, the author of the influential Autobiography of a Yogi and the founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship. Featuring interviews with scientists, yoga teachers, and direct students of Yogananda, the film becomes a kind of who’s who of celebrities, including Deepak Chopra, Krishna Das, the late George Harrison and Ravi Shankar.

Composed of seamlessly interlocked stock footage, old photos, and dramatic re-enactments, the film traces Yogananda's life from childhood (when mystics foretold his spiritual powers and path) and hisapprenticeship with his own guru to his triumphant introduction of Hindu spirituality to America, thescandal that almost destroyed him, and the final burst of spiritual and creative energy that resulted inhis classic memoir, The Autobiography of a Yogi (reportedly the only book Steve Jobs had on his iPad). While celebrity devotees turn up throughout (George Harrison, Russell Simmons), what's most fascinating here are the physicists and neuroscientists discussing how the yogi's insights on the workings of the world and the brain were decades ahead of science. They suggest that science still hasn't caught up to him.

Awake also captures intimate—and at times heartbreaking—moments of the guru’s life. Through slow-mo, sepia-toned reenactments, archival video footage, newspaper clippings, audio recordings, photos, and a narrative spun in Yogananda’s own words.

Filmed over three years in over 30 countries, AWAKE examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West, and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards in pursuit of Self-Realization. By evoking the journey of the soul as it pushes its way through the oppression of the ego and delusion of the material world, the film creates an experiential immersion into the unseen realms.

AWAKE is ultimately the story of mankind itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.
