Since there is very little video footage (that I’ve seen) of Paramahansa Yogananda, I guess we have to be grateful for the video footage that we do have. While I really enjoyed reading Autobiography of a Yogi, as well as many of Yogananda’s other works, I would have to agree with the comment on YouTube about this clip that said, ” Uh… Let’s just say this is a case of the book being better than the movie….” Don’t get me wrong, I actually like the clip, but I think I would prefer to be able to see it unedited. I think Yogananda was a lot more dynamic than this clip portrays. It’s kind of funny how serious he is, especially when he says, “you people do not sleep correctly…[and you] subconsciously worry about unpaid bills….” No kidding!
Thank you for posting this! I never knew there was any footage of him. My what a LARGE yogi! I had to laugh at his bulk when he laid down.
Oh to be able to sleep correctly. Where is PY when you need him?
That’s a pretty (unintented) funny clip. I really need to restrain myself not to parody that on my website.
