“Meditative in it’s rhythms” – Frank Scheck, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“‘Gurukulam’ offers sights and sounds of a spiritual awakening” = Helen T. Verongos, THE NEW YORK TIMES 

Set at an ashram in a remote forest in Tamil Nadu, India, Gurukulam (meaning: family of the teacher; traditional place of study) follows a French Muslim businessman, an American psychology professor, a Japanese Yoga teacher, and a young South Indian Brahmin, as they study the ancient practice of Advaita Vedānta, the Hindu tradition of non-duality and one of the philosophical roots of the Yoga movement, as taught by Swami Dayananda Saraswati, spiritual Guru of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and one of the few remaining traditional teachers of Vedānta.

Widely sought after for both his command of Hindu spiritual texts, such as the Upaniṣads and the Bhagavad Gītā, as well as his capacity to communicate ancient wisdom into living experience, Dayananda weaves together daily chores, meditation, ritual, and rigorous study to impart his knowledge and experience to his pupils and connect the natural and spiritual worlds in moments of surprising revelation and comic contradiction. Deeply observational and experiential, Gurukulam evokes the presence of the place and a tactile sense of the sacred.
