Very inspirational and well made movie
16 August 2017 | by sudhirgcSee all my reviews

This is a very authentic documentary on ISKCON movement and success of Prabhupad in bringing Vaishnava philosophy to the west. The movie depicts how a pure devotee of the lord can transform lives through love and compassion. Mahatma Gandhi's achievements at social- political level are well documented and known, but the spiritual revolution which Prabhupad started in not yet fully appreciated. For Mahatma Gandhi it is said that 'Greatness of this man was his simplicity', but for Prabhupad, we can say that 'Greatness of this devotee is his purity'. The movie depicts how Krishna Consciousness movement is for anybody, who considers himself a spiritual seeker irrespective of his current material situation and conditioning. Its a must watch for anyone who wants to understand the tradition of Bhakti Yoga in the most simplest and complete form. The producers of the movie are successful in presenting a concise but moving narrative of the challenges (including health) faced by Prabhupad and how he was able to overcome all of them by his devotion towards his spiritual master and Krishna.
