For the first time in a major motion picture, Yogananda, depicts the incredible life odyssey of Paramhansa Yogananda, the man who ignited a spiritual revolution by bringing yoga to America in 1920.
Yogananda is one of the most honored and influential yoga masters ever to live and teach in the West. His book, Autobiography of a Yogi, has been read by millions and is the best selling spiritual autobiography of all time.
Now in production, Yogananda, is 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.
An innovative blend of fiction and fact, of actors and real-life characters, The Ananda Movie (working title Cities of Light) is a feature film being produced in Hollywood, based on founding of one of the most relevant spiritual movements in the world today, the dramatic story of its founder, Swami Kriyananda, the challenges he faced, and the movement which is providing a map for the lifestyle of the future.
