An unconventional biography about the East Indian mystic which brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience. Known as the "Father of Yoga in the West," he attracted countless followers in his day. Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West, and explores why millions today have turned their attention inward, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of Self-realization.
