In 1946  Paramahansa Yogananda (January 5, 1893-March 7, 1952) held in his hand the first copy of his Autobiography of a Yogi and said to his then small group of disciples that this book would  bring millions to this path.

As of today Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi has sold more than four million copies in 34 languages. We have no idea how many people have read loaned copies, nor how many uncountable public domain digital first edition numbers have been read. There is an audio version narrated by Ben Kingsley.

Sales of Autobiography of a Yogi are expected to accelerate along with interest in Yogananda’s life and teachings with the theatrical release this month of the documentary Awake: The Life of Yogananda Movie.   Screenings.  Blog.

Here is the short two and a half minute movie trailer.

Here are three reasons you might be interested in knowing more about Yogananda, his teachings, and his Self-Realization Fellowship organization.

Paramahansa Yogananda teaches us that,

1. Whether we realize it or not, the purpose of this life is God-Realization.

2. His path is not the only way since all paths lead to God, because there is nowhere else to go.

3. His Raja Yoga/Self-Realization Fellowship path (Meditation, Devotion, Service) is the scientific, fastest way to God.

I hear from a lot of people who are inspired by “Awake: The Life of Yogananda Movie.” Currently, it is available on Netflix in the USA, and in theaters worldwide.
Thank you for your comment,
Jai Guru,
