Wow
10 March 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Quick! Name 5 activities you would consider are proper to a spiritual master living in today's world: Meditation... check, Chanting... check, Exercise... check, Devotional service.... check... weight lifting.... really?

After watching this film, your idea of what "spirituality" and "devotional work" is will have to be rewritten. Sri Chinmoy shows that being a spiritual master is not about sitting down and contemplating all day long, or being hidden in a cave somewhere in the Himalayas, but it's actually a modern day to day reality; and just how spiritual would you consider weight lifters to be? Aren't they the most superficial of beings? Well... some of them are the opposite.

This movie changed my perception and impressed me out of bounds.
