Watch Awake: The Life of Yogananda - Alternative Versions.
I'll make it clear from the start, that I am not fully objective. I've
been a devoted follower of the Self-Realization path for 34 years now.
But I'm deeply impressed at the care of the filmmakers and the courage
of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) in opening up to a film project in
which they desired an outside, award-wining team of documentarians to
tell Yogananda's story with objective journalism.
Yogananda's life is full of miracles, which a reading of his
Autobiography of a Yogi will reveal. The movie did not emphasize the
miracles at all. When it referred to a few, it was with such a light
touch that you could miss it if you weren't paying close attention.
Some members were disappointed in this. One omission was the fact that
a month after Yogananda's death, his body still did not show any signs
of decay. The morticians at Forest Lawn signed a letter attesting to
the incorruptibility of the yogi's body. In Yogananda's humility, I
believe he himself would be very pleased with the film. The heart of
his message was crystal clear: the purpose of SRF is to help sincere
souls awaken to God's presence within by forming a personal
relationship with God through meditation on His/Her peace, love and
As a devotee, I had never heard the detailed stories of betrayal and
threats on his life that the film revealed. It impressed me that a
number of times, the tests and trials tempted Yogananda to give up his
mission and return to his beloved Guru in India. However, his sincere,
intimate relationship with God always helped him return to his work,
and at one point rebuild his organization from the ground up after one
very close friend/brother disciple betrayed him in a number of ways.
This deeply touched me. I respect that Yogananda himself, and SRF as a
whole did not waste time bemoaning difficulties or gossiping about the
weaknesses of others. They kept their focus on the mission. The
information only came out once journalists determined it was important
information about Yogananda, putting him in the context of a life of
challenges, and an American culture with its racism and fear of new
ideas and foreign persons.
The movie will come out in select theaters in October 2014. Watch for
it in your city. I think you will find it inspiring, interesting,
unique. It was created with a wisdom and a devotion that is rare in
filmmaking. Congratulations to the filmmakers! I think it is worthy of
an Academy Award Nomination for Best Documentary.
