Very cool. Looking at the picture here on your page I thought it was an African journey. I will seek the whole movie when I get a chance. I am fascinated with India and its spiritual heritage. My book in the first half looks at who we are and have been as a culture then it compares it to who we could be as better expressions of human beings. My chapter on Jesus shows him as a highly developed human being who travels to India and Tibet as a young man to further his "education" studying with highly developed teachers. Paramahansa Yogananda brings it to light in one of his books and others have also. I love his writings. I also cite his teacher Sri Yuketeswara form his book Holy Science about cleansing the heart and allowing the natural love to flow for God is love or love is God. As my grandfather taught me he also taught , "God is All in All". Please visit my webpage and watch my youtube videos they are poor and boring but please explain to me how my brother and I got the last scene in "Learning What our Hearts are For" we do not know and neither did the techy's who loaned us the camera. I was meant to say good bye and wlak over the hill but instead I vaporized, very strange. We did not do it intentionally. I apologize for my unexcited way of speaking thats just me.
Peace and love,
