The film takes you on an inspirational quest of self-discovery, "following your bliss"  to a fully realized life. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think. A great prelude to our "Heroine’s Journey"  event, on January 5th! 80 minutes

In 1990 Self-Realization Fellowship sued the Ananda Church (followers of the same teachings) to prevent them from using the ancient term "Self-Realization"  as part of their church name. Soon SRF insisted that it also owned all rights to the writings, name, image, and voice of Paramhansa Yogananda—revered guru to both groups, and author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi. Tonight author Jon Parsons, Ananda’s lawyer during the lawsuit, tells the dramatic tale of a landmark David-and-Goliath struggle that set important legal precedents, preserved fundamental religious rights for everyone, and demonstrated the truth that "where there is dharma, there is victory." 
