Stunning
17 September 2017 | by garystevasonSee all my reviews

The movie was a high quality biography of a great great preacher of God. The greatest thing about him was his constant absolute love for God, which was so precious, obvious and infectious that the world was transformed and remains transformed. The movie reveals this in a heartfelt tribute endearing to anyone fortunate enough to taste the reality of God and our natural love for Him. My thanks go out to all who helped create this tribute to the man who stood up and changed the world, who made my world sublime beyond imagination.

I had asked God "I know You wrote a book two thousand years ago, but I wish You would come and tell me Yourself". A month later this saint set sail for the West bringing the Song of God with him. And a few years later as I entered a George Harrison concert one of his faithful offered me that Song of God book, The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is. Only days earlier I had decided to get the Gita. It was as though God Himself came and told me exactly everything I needed to know.

This movie does this great man justice, although I feel no one but God knows how really great he was, how great he really is.
