I thought this documentary about the founding of the Hare Krishnas of the 70's, which gave birth to the modern "new age" movement, was well done and informative. I also thought the documentary was a bit slow in some parts, but I really didn't mind. I enjoyed the discussion between the historians about their ideas and how the movement became what it is today. It was a good introduction to the movement and the ideas behind it. It is a good introduction to the movement, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the movement.

In a nutshell, this is a movie about a Hindu "Hindu-Buddhist" (Hinduism and Buddhism are NOT the same thing!) guru, who, after 20 years, after decades of personal struggle and teaching, finally gets the chance to "serve" (see what I mean?) God. The movie is not what you expect it to be. The Indian government is portrayed as being very un-ambitious in their attempts to deny the true nature of this guru. In fact, the movie was released in the midst of a government-sponsored anti-Hindu propaganda campaign. What was the result? Well, the movie would be considered a "non-violent" movie if it weren't for the fact that it ends with the Guru being assassinated by a "non-violent" Indian police officer. (I suppose that a "non-violent" Sikh police officer would have killed the Guru if he'd had the chance to do so, but that's not the point here). The Indian government is depicted as being very, very evil. The Guru's actions and teachings are depicted as being "evil". This is all an attempt to deny the "true nature" of this guru. The movie is NOTHING like it would have you believe. It's not about "love" (although that's an important element) or "truth" (although it's an important element). It's about Hinduism and Buddhism. This is NOT a "real" movie. It's a movie about the Hindu-Buddhist religion. So, if you are an Indian, or a Buddhist, or Hindu or any other religion, you will NOT like the movie. It is a movie about a religion, and a religion is NOT something to be honored with a "Hollywood" ending. The fact that this movie was allowed to be released in the first place is a HUGE problem. I hope this movie will go down in history as a lesson to those who make movies about religions and/or religions. It's a movie about a religion, and that religion is Hinduism and Buddhism.

There's a lot to get into here with a bunch of different people speaking. This one is from a Swami who actually does not believe in God, and his life is spent figuring out how to "do something" with his life. If you want to find out why the word "Swami" is used so much, and why the real name is Mantra, and why the one you see in the trailer is actually the real one, you won't be disappointed. But if you're looking for a movie that's going to make you think, and to think in general, you're in for a long wait. The best part is that there's no song and dance, there's no shooting, and there's no talking. And that's because there's no talking at all. It's just about finding the person who changed the world.

Having seen a few documentaries on the subject, I am a bit surprised that this movie was not more widely known. It is a very good documentary, with some interesting interviews, and it takes the time to show the "gory" side of the Hindu religion. The "Mantra" is very good, with a few funny moments. I can't say it is a great documentary, but it is certainly not bad. The narration is good, and the interviewees are very interesting, though some of them are rather strange. The whole documentary is really entertaining, with a few funny moments. Recommended.

I was looking forward to this movie for quite a while, and I was not disappointed. I thought it was very well made, and I think that the director, Martin Scorsese, did an excellent job with the movie. It's very exciting to see his films, and the fact that it's a documentary made me feel that it wasn't over the top or anything like that. It was very professional and had some very interesting and interesting things to say. I don't know what the critics and audience have been talking about. The title of the movie was very misleading. It was never meant to be a documentary on Krishna, but rather it was a look into the life of the Swami and his movement. The story is very interesting, and it gives you a really good understanding of what life was like for him and the people who followed him. It's great to see his life and the people around him, especially when it's portrayed in a way that's so realistic. It's very exciting to see him in his heyday, and to see his philosophy and how he changed the world. This is a very well made movie, and it's an excellent way to get a glimpse into the life of a Swami, and his teachings.

This documentary is about a group of devotees who went to visit Sri Ramana Maharshi in India. It is interesting to see how the film makers tried to capture the essence of the Maharshi's philosophy and it is evident that they were very serious in the attempt. This is a well produced and well made documentary that I would recommend to anyone interested in the Maharshi's philosophy and the events surrounding his life.

I just finished watching this movie and I must say it is a great watch for anyone interested in spiritualism or kundalini or any of the related stuff. There are some hilarious moments, the girl who played Kala is great, and this is the movie that started me on my spiritual journey. I am not a teacher, but if I could recommend one thing to someone who is a teacher or interested in spiritualism, this would be it. I think it is a must watch, and you will be surprised by some of the things that you will discover.

The history of India, its history, its culture and its people is very important. The culture of India has been the most fascinating part of the world to me. I've heard of many cultures, religions, history and even religions. In India, we have a history, a culture, a language and a way of life. So when I heard of the film "The Birth of a Nation", I was very interested in seeing it. The film is based on the book by Booker T. Washington. It tells the story of Nat Turner and how he led the rebellion against slavery and helped to start the civil war in the United States. The film is very interesting because the movie is very easy to watch and understand. There are no bad acting, no bad cinematography, no bad directing, no bad effects and no bad sound. The film is very well made. The director did a great job. I think that the director is very talented. The direction was very good, especially because the movie is very easy to watch. The film is a very good film and I recommend it to everyone who is interested in history, culture, religion, or in anything. I recommend it to everyone who likes movies because it is very good. The Birth of a Nation is very good. I would give it 8.7/10. Recommended to everyone who is interested in history, culture, religion, or anything.

I have seen some of his earlier works and I must say that he is not exactly an easy person to deal with. His films are a mix of visual imagery, action and drama. He has a great ability to make people feel what he is trying to express. I have to admit that I am not a great fan of his, but this film will be a welcome addition to his resume. This film was made with the help of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and other facilities. His film is not just about one man and his journey. It is about a movement. It is about the people and their struggle to accomplish their goals. This film has some great clips and some awesome visualizations of what it takes to make a change in the world. I am so excited to see more of Mr. Hare Krishna and his family. If you are interested in learning more about this man or watching his work, I recommend the film, "The Magicians."

An interesting and informative look at the Bhagwanji movement and how it came to be. This documentary is very well put together. It is shot in a very simple fashion, using just a camera and a couple of handhelds. It's well edited, and the main actors do a great job with the material they are given. The editing does a good job of keeping the flow of the film going. The only problem with the film is that the flow is very rushed. Some of the scenes feel very rushed and don't seem to flow at all. Other than that, the film is very well put together. The interviews with the Bhagwanji movement participants are very interesting. There is a lot of information that is relayed in the interviews. It's a very interesting and thought provoking documentary.

My sincere thanks to the Director for taking up this project. I'm not really much into Ayurveda but this documentary has definitely opened my eyes. I really don't know where to begin with this documentary. It's simply so much more than what it first appears. The documentary takes a backseat to the spiritual practices of Ayurveda. There's a sense of awe and amazement in watching this documentary. There's also an insight that there are spiritual paths and different spiritual practices. The Director has beautifully captured the various styles and techniques of Ayurveda. There's the simple and simple-trying-to-improve-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a-little-thing-with-a

I've watched this documentary many times and I still find new things to learn. It was very interesting to learn about the historical background of Swami Vivekananda. I found it fascinating to learn about the people and the things they did. I also found it interesting to learn that, if they had had more money, they would have made more films. Also, it is interesting to see the people's reactions to the lifestyle that the Swami was living. To some, it was cool, but to others, it was completely unnecessary. I thought that it was very interesting to see the Swami himself in his own words. I also enjoyed the fact that the people in the village were treated as equals, and not as objects to be used or just property to be sold off to the highest bidder. I also thought that the people were treated as people and not just objects. I thought that they were treated with respect and not just used as property. I found that the documentary was very informative and very interesting to learn about.

Yes, it is that rare a case where a documentary about a movie is made and it's a good documentary. This is the story of a great Indian guru who changed the way we perceive spirituality and who became a god to millions of people. I must admit, it was good to hear from other Indians about the philosophy, beliefs and techniques of his life, his teachings and what he taught. I think that a great deal of the interest in this movie was the philosophical and spiritual content. It is true that the film had great visuals and a great story. The only real issue that I have with it was that it didn't leave a lot of room for questions, particularly about the history and origins of the guru. Maybe that was a good thing, because the focus of the movie was on him and the philosophy. It left a lot of questions unanswered. The movie is full of great quotes and great photographs. It's also a must-see for Indian movie lovers, because the stories told in the movie are based on real life events and the philosophy of his life. I think that the movie would have been a lot better if the philosophical and spiritual content was more comprehensive. I also think that the movie is full of really amazing images, from the landscapes to the moon. If you are interested in the philosophy of spirituality and are into Indian history, this movie is a must-see.

I had never seen the other movie from the Dharamsala series before, but this one was a must watch for fans of this type of movie. Not many of them make the effort to make the effort to learn how to speak the language of the country. This movie does that. The way they teach the language is very inspiring. The only way to understand the subtleties and nuances of the language is to speak it, because it is like a language of its own. The only thing I have to complain about is that the movie is a little too long. The story was well thought out and the movie was full of action. The action was not as elaborate as the last one. The movie itself was a little more intense and you don't get the full effect of the movie until you actually watch the movie. Also, this movie is not as well known as the other Dharamsala movies. So if you don't know what this movie is about, don't worry, I am sure you will find out.

This is a documentary about the RSS and what it stands for, what it has accomplished and how it does it. I like how they really show how it came about and how it became what it is today. The filmmaker, is an Indian, and is somewhat biased as he is a RSS guy. However, he does a good job of getting the story and doing a good job at describing the story of the RSS and their current movements. The films is a bit slow, but it's just one man's opinion, so it's understandable. It's a great documentary about the RSS, and the people that run it. I liked it, it's just a good documentary, that is enjoyable to watch.

I just came back from a screening of this film. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. The first half of the film is very interesting, and the second half was very strong. I highly recommend this movie. Definitely recommend seeing it on a big screen!

This is a great film to watch if you are interested in Yoga and Kundalini. If you are looking for a film with lots of action, this film is not for you. It is definitely not the type of film you want to watch while you are meditating. However, it is definitely a great film for those who are interested in Yoga. The title of this film is very misleading. It is more of a documentary on the history of Yoga. This is why I think this film is great. It is about the Yoga movement, not about a guru or even about the movement itself. The documentary does an excellent job of showing the history of Yoga. It shows how people came to practice Yoga and why some people prefer to do it, and how it evolved. It also shows the actual movements of Yoga, including the famous downward facing dog pose and the lunges. It also shows how Yoga came about and shows that it is a spiritual practice. It is not just about having a yoga teacher or even about Yoga itself. The documentary is great because it shows the history of Yoga, the history of the Yogis and how they practiced it, and the history of yoga in general. It also shows how people practice Yoga and how it has evolved over time. Overall, the documentary is very informative and well-written. It has good actors, a good script, and it is a great documentary. If you are interested in Yoga and are interested in the history of Yoga, this is the film to watch. If you want to watch a documentary on the history of Yoga, then this is not the film you want to watch.

This film is a story of how Swami Vivek went from a simple ashram leader to a modern Swami and the impact he had on the world of India.

Swami Vivek has also been credited with having helped establish the Indian Medical Association and the Indian Chess Association. All this has been done without the support of any major religion, political party or political party leader. The film shows how Swami Vivek has changed the lives of millions of people around the world. If you want to learn more about Vivek's Doctrine of Maha Yogi, then this film is definitely worth watching.

Mantra is a unique philosophy of life and an example of how a person can rise from the ashes of a life. If you would watch this documentary you would have to change your lifestyle and your way of thinking. It shows how the Mantra can be a means to a higher goal. The stories of the people who have been inspired by the Mantra are very inspiring. They have been uplifted and have changed their life for the better. The Swami who started the Mantra movement has had a phenomenal career, he is one of the most influential Swami's in the world. This documentary is a must see.
