timeless wisdom
14 January 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed wisdom and symbolic messages to watch this film. (I have seen it 4 times up to now) I am spiritual searcher and Baba's message at the end :"If you stop searching, Music will find You", it was message to me and my search.. Watching this movie you can taste this Indian non-hurry,calm sensitive way of living.. Pallavi expressed her feelings so wonderful.It was not much needed to read subtitles. I had German subtitles and it was little hard to understand all..

There are many symbolic scenes ..like Neem tree,as holy tree,little girl with Baba,(who is she?-Goddess Saraswati?somebody of my friends said.) It is needed to know little about Indian tradition and meaning of passing traditional teaching from Guru to disciple.Here I got message ..find your own way!
