Inspiringly beautiful
7 January 2008 | by theandriaSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful documentary that not only reveals the differences between the western and eastern medicines, but the mentality, spirit and wisdom rooted in ancients sciences versus the modern, instant gratifying, mechanistic paradigm. Being myself a nurse for more than decade with European and North American experiences, this movie helped me to realize, how barbaric the western medical science can be. Both sides are represented in the movie and the explanations and reasonings are accurate and relevant. I'm actually surprised to see some of the practices revealed in such an open and detailed way. Of course, Ayurveda is not a secret science, but I had the feeling that I'm being initiated into something sacred and very precious. This movie is highly recommended for everyone interested in alternative medicines, devotees of the Indian culture and spirituality and for those who are looking for greater Truth in life.
