  1. Hello. I was wondering if the movie THE ANSWER is going to have a showing in Fort Worth or Dallas Texas?
    Did Ananda make a Yogananda movie that I can purchase?

      Hi Christine,

      I’m sorry, the creators of The Answer haven’t informed us of any upcoming film festivals. Hopefully they’ll post it on their website: or their Facebook page: when one is scheduled.

      As for a Yogananda movie, Ananda started to make one, but then “Awake” came out, so we decided to put that project on hold since it seemed “Awake” had mostly fulfilled our reason for making one. “Awake” is available on iTunes if you haven’t seen it.
