This short documentary features the story and teachings of Indian Saint Pujya Swamiji. At eight years old he experienced enlightenment after his spiritual teacher sent him into the jungle to practice an arduous sadhana: an 11-hour meditation standing on one foot. Swamiji briefly tells of his experience alone in the jungle as the starting point to further discussions on obtaining eternal happiness, bliss and peace. This wise and gentle guru clearly speaks from his heart with grace and passion. His message is simple yet profound: open your heart, be present in this moment, let go of your attachments, and give to others. Overall this DVD provides an authentic Indian spiritual experience, full of vivid images of India and the Himalayan mountains, and accompanied by an exotic soundtrack of renowned musicians.
