Awake! The life of Yogananda

Author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi

The mystic  who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s.

His classic book is said to be the only book Steve Jobs had on his iPad.

Archival material from Yogananda’s life (he died in 1952) creates a spine for this inspiring narrative.

 

Embedded as we are in a social media-mad world of ever-inflating trivia,

our journey to steer, still or enlighten our mind remains a daunting quest.

The gift of Exploring Consciousness to us is one of reawakening. Thank you!

Exploring Consciousness

since 1996
www.exploringconsciousness.org.za

Thought-provoking films feature humanity’s endless spiritual search.

From ancient wisdom traditions to the latest interfaith accords,

scientific investigations to philosophical ‘truths’.

The emphasis always on exploration, of looking into the mystery of life,

into the pain and suffering, the chaos and the confusion.

But always there is the little flame flickering inside each of us:

our interconnectedness to all beings, to all matter, to the whole universe.
