RASA YATRA evokes the beauty of pilgrimage and explores the essence of devotion in Hindu culture through non-linear narrative. Rasa is Sanskrit for "juice" or "taste". Yatra means "journey", suggesting a joyful inner expedition, beyond the confines of routine and conceptual conventions. Photographed over a period of four years, RASA YATRA takes the audience on a meditative journey from the majestic Himalayan mountains into Vrindavana, the spiritual heart of India. For the receptive viewer, RASA YATRA becomes a pilgrimage rather than a mere depiction of one. Written by

Rasa Yatra is a film very well worth watching several times - each time more details and layers of meaning come to the forefront. The timely - and timeless - message about the contrast between living a traditional life, connected with nature and moving at nature's pace, and the hectic modern life style, disconnected from our environments, is presented through beautiful imagery of tranquil people and places on one hand, fast-paced shots of restless city life and the concrete jungle on the other. The photography is exquisite, the messages are profound. When we watched the film in Denver CO with a large group, the response was amazing. Every single person was totally absorbed in watching and mesmerized; nobody was moving or fidgeting. We all felt enriched by the opportunity to watch this piece of art.
