    Great documentary with excellent music. The scenery is beautiful and the camera work outstanding. Being not a yoga person myself, I found this film very fascinating and interesting. It was great to have the yogis tell us what they are willing to give up to live the way they do. A must-see film for anyone, and especially, those into yoga. A+ Full Review »

    The reviewer from the LA Weekly must have watched a different movie, been ignorant of the East and, therefore, out of touch with what is being documented in the movie or is just plain dense beyond belief. It is astounding how the film makers were so trusted by the Holy Men that they were almost able to be "in their face" without them "acting" or "perfoming" for the camera. The "interviews" seemed to be very natural and uncontrived, the documentation of events seemed to be straightforwardly presented and the movie as a whole is a great achievement that brings insight to the West.
