SinopsysTHIS IS A PROJECT FOR A GREAT VISIONARY FILM that recounts the adventurous life of Paramhansa Yogananda, inspire
by his Autobiography of a Yogi, a wildly popular book with over 20 million copies sold. Yogananda touches the lives of whole generations, including Elvis Presley, Ravi Shankar, John Coltrane, George Harrison, Carlos Santana, and Steve Jobs. His image appears (alongside Yogananda’s spiritual teachers, who we’ll meet in the film) on the famous cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Autobiography of a Yogi also has the distinction of being the only book Steve Jobs put on his iPad. Jobs loved the book so much that he left a copy, enclosed in a precious, wooden box, to each guest who attended his funeral
