Storyline

11-year old Neelkanth has long dreamed of being a Yogi, and in the darkness of the rainy evening of June 29, 1792 he secretly leaves his family behind in the Northern India city of Ayodhya by plunging himself into the Saryu river at flood stage. Landing downstream, he begins a 7 year barefoot trek that will cover 8,000 miles through much of India. The young Yogi impresses everyone he meets, providing spiritual inspiration, but declines offers to remain in the villages he visits. He tames a fearsome lion terrorizing one village. Heading into the Himalayas barefoot, and wearing little clothing, he survives freezing temperatures using Yoga and meditation. He crosses a pass at 18,000 feet and treks through the deepest gorge in the world before transversing rain forests, jungles and following coastlines.

Excellent documentary/movie for everyone
3 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie shows full breath and depth of India's vast culture on the backdrop of life story of Neelkanth, a young yogi. As an Indian, I walk away with pride and feeling confidence of my heritage and myself. My kids also liked the movie a lot. I assume, non-Indian, will find it very informative, interesting, and of course mystic. After watching the movie, one may feel like experiencing the parts of India, as the Neelkanth did. So, this movie can be bing boon to India's tourism industry.

I wish there is a web-site to follow up, so the viewers can further dive into the mysticism of India.
