| One of the most impressive and influential documentaries ever !!
This is the most impressive and influential documentaries I have ever watched! It is powerful, emotional, and thought provoking. It brings to light the importance and the universal truth that every human being should try to figure out in his/her current life. Very much enjoyed watching the actual story behind Hare Krishnas. Swamiji was indeed trying to make this world a better place to live for all!
