MOVING THROUGH ETERNAL REALMS OF INDIAN PILGRIMAGE TO DEEPEN LIFE’S JOURNEY.

WITH APPEARANCES BY

  • KRISHNA DAS
  • DEVA PREMAL
  • JAI UTTAL
  • RAM DASS

Moving through a vast spiritual landscape, this feature-length documentary travels over 2000 miles to legendary places from India’s steamy southern tip to the snows of the Himalayas. This is a cinematic voyage into the 5000-year-old tradition of pilgrimage to inspire one’s own life journey.

New practices from India like hatha yoga, meditation and bhakti yoga chant are having a transformative effect in the West. This non-sectarian film returns to the source as India’s ancient culture of pilgrimage deepens the spiritual path.

Found in every Hindu temple, Om is a symbol of spiritual perfection.

In 1970 John Bush left war-time America to travel to India in search of inner peace. Over three years he lived in the pilgrimage sites of India guided by his guru Neem Karoli Baba. Now four decades later he returns as a filmmaker to rediscover this ancient world still surviving within modern India. On pilgrimage with his Indian crew, John shows an informed respect for this tradition while making it meaningful for a world-wide audience. A sudden tragedy on location deepens his personal journey.

Ram Dass and Friends

Insights of spiritual India by the filmmaker’s longtime friend Ram Dass (formerly Richard Alpert) are heard in the film. The author of Be Here Now and spiritual guide to millions shares how the journey travels from ego to the open heart. The chanting of Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Jai Uttal and others imbue the film with inspired reverie. They share their experiences of Indian pilgrimage and bhakti yoga that resonate with a westerner’s spiritual path. Renowned Indian musicians and vocalists create an atmosphere of serenity, devotional longing and transformation.
