I bought the book, and slowly read it contemplatively for months. The spiritual teachings and ancient yogic notions in the book were backed by the latest physics and nueroscience of his time. He was a spiritual genius. The words he wrote were radical, yet innately sensical notions. Yogananda's message is responsible for igniting the modern yoga movement and effecting millions of westerners since his first visit to America almost 100 years ago.
These memories of Paramahansa Yogananda and his cosmically meditative messages were shaken up in me when I had the opportunity to watch the recently released documentary, Awake: The Life of Yogananda. If you're in New York or California you're in luck! The screenings have been widely extended to November 6, 2014. Here are some of the cinemas where you can catch the screening of Awake for at least one more week.
