Summary, etc.:
India is a great land full of mysteries and a myriad of religious practices that span the course of millennia. A young westerner, Marcel Poulin, undertakes the journey of a lifetime as he travels through India, seeking answers to the great questions of his life. He is in need of discovering who he really is and what his life is all about. To find these answers, he seeks to learn the spiritual path of Sadhana, a sacred ascetic path. He travels from sacred site to sacred site, such as the Kumbha Mela and the Valley of the Gods, taking in the beauty of the landscape. Along the way he learns from Swamis and Gurus, eventually becoming an apprentice Sadhu. What he discovers on his quest will change his life, and the lives of many others. Join him and gain insight into India's legacy and the living spirit of Hinduism.
