For the first time in a narrative feature film, YOGANANDA depicts the incredible life odyssey of Paramhansa Yogananda, the man who ignited a spiritual revolution by bringing Yoga to America in 1920.
The Long-Awaited Inspirational Feature FilmWelcome to the official website of "YOGANANDA," a major motion picture that is being produced for worldwide distribution in 2013 — commemorating the 60th anniversary of the mahasamadhi, or conscious leaving of the body, of the Indian yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda.
On this website you can learn about the making of the movie and the life of Paramhansa Yogananda, through promotional trailers, photo galleries, the movie's official blog, and news and events.
"YOGANANDA" is based on the book Paramhansa Yogananda: A Biography, by Yogananda's close, direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda. For the past 63 years, Kriyananda has brought Yogananda's teachings to the world – he has authored over 100 books based on Yogananda's teachings, he has written over 400 pieces of music, and he has founded 8 cooperative communities, where about 1,000 people live. Included on the website is information about launches of the biography worldwide in Mumbai, India later in 2011 and the United States in 2012, along with book video trailers.
