"Meeting the Master - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar". The Film.

"Meeting the Master - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar". The Film.


Meeting the Master Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is the new film/documentary realized by the film director Alberto Simone, following the step of one of the greatest Masters of our time. His profound teachings, his dedication to Peace and to inter-religious dialogue, have caused him to be, for over thirty years, one of the most influential figures of our present times. In this documentary, he lets himself be more intimately appreciated and understood, accepting for the first time, the presence of cameras, in situations that previously no-one had ever had the opportunity to film. An extraordinary document, not only for the richness and the beauty of it images, but most of all for a message of peace and communion.

The film:
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a great spiritual leader and humanitarian. His large Ashram in the city of Bangalore, in the south of India, is the focal point, every year, for millions of people, seeking to enhance their consciousness and spirituality, who come from every corner of the earth. His profound teachings, his dedication to Peace and to inter-religious dialogue have caused him to be, for over thirty years, one of the most influential figures of our present epoch. He is known also as the "Guru of Joy", due to his sweet and gentle humour, the irony and simplicity with which he is able to transmit deep and inspired consciousness, by means of his Yoga teachings, Indian and Universal philosophy. In this documentary film, he lets himself be more intimately appreciated and understood, accepting for the first time, the presence of cameras, in situations that previously no-one had ever had the opportunity to film. What emerges, is an extraordinary document, not only for the richness and the beauty of it images, and the testimonies which come from one of the most important centres of universal spirituality, but also for the profoundly sensitive vision given by the writer and director Alberto Simone, of one of the most fascinating and charismatic figures of our time. An exquisite and essential message of peace and communion, which goes beyond all cultural and religious affiliations, and which is directed, over and above every individual spectator, to a humanity which is once again in search of its collective identity.
