Acclaimed as “Father of Yoga in the West,” and known to millions as author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 – 1952) is regarded as one of the preeminent spiritual teachers of our time. But when he first came to America more than eighty years ago, alone and unrecognized, few could have foreseen the significance of his arrival. It marked a historic turning point that would forever change the religious and cultural landscape of the West—the first widespread introduction of India’s ancient science of meditation for direct experience of God and a powerful message of the underlying unity of all world religions.
This documentary—written and produced by monks of Self-Realization Fellowship (the organization Yogananda founded in 1920)—follows the great master’s footsteps during his pioneering efforts to introduce the West to the timeless spiritual heritage of the East. It features:
beautiful archival photographs of Paramahansa Yogananda and his activities, as well as rare motion picture footage of the Guru
scenes of the places where he lived and taught
poignant anecdotes of students and friends whose lives he profoundly changed.
The Early Years in America takes the viewer on an inspiring spiritual pilgrimage that captures the challenges and triumphs of one of the great religious figures of the 20th century. Travel with him through the beginnings of his God-inspired lifework of uniting East and West—as he awakened hearts and minds to a universal spirituality that speaks to the soul of our emerging global civilization.
