Beautilly made, honest and modest film. Definitely worth seeing.
2 December 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This truly a beautiful movie depicting all human aspects of a contemporary guru. It is a great pleasure to see and to listen to Dr.Chopra no matter where he is, no matter what he is doing.

And this movie is truly an honest and a modest film depicting all human side of Dr.Chopra. I was also very curious about his journey to Thailand and the time he spent with the monks. Now my curiosity has been satisfied. How even an enlightened guru like Chopra can still learn new things from such experiences like these, worth seeing.

Highly recommended.

In fact some parts are very funny too.

This is a not only a great opportunity to get to know more about Dr.Choora but also how he is living his own truth within himself. In my opinion his integrity is also beyond any words of praise. He knows the truth, he tells about it but more importantly he lives it. His life alone may be a lesson for many.
