Awake: The Life of Yogananda by Paola Di Florio, Lisa Leman & Peter Rader
Awake 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. He made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today. Stylized interviews, metaphoric imagery and recreations evoke the journey of the soul creating an experiential immersion into the unseen realms. Awake is ultimately the story of humanity itself: the universal
struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.
