Films about Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

A profound homage to the spiritual greatness of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

Arunachala Shiva is a profound homage to the spiritual greatness of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi who is one of India’s most well-known Sages. 
    Arunachala Shiva paints an intimate picture of Sri Ramana’s life, taking us behind the scenes to moments with his closest disciples. The shocking yet compelling commentaries offer new and unexpected insights into his teachings, challenging entrenched ideas and assisting a final realisation.

Sri Ramana’s most profound questions answered by Indian Spiritual Masters

In India he is regarded as a Saint and many consider him the most important guru of recent times: Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, simply called Bhagavan, God, by his devotees.   
    John David has succeeded in coaxing sixteen important Indian Masters to speak into his microphone.
   He asks each of them the same set of questions about the teachings of their fellow Master, Sri Ramana. The result is a compendium of astonishing wisdom about the biggest secret of all times: the nature of our true Self and how to realise it.

A Unique Transmission of Sri Ramana’s Teachings to Western Seekers

This unique film presents fresh, modern dialogues about ancient truth with western spiritual Masters in interview with John David. The questions relate to major topics which we meet on the spiritual journey, such as Enlightenment, Devotion, Self-Enquiry, the Master, the Nature of the Mind and the World.
    We meet each European Master through the interview and beautiful additional film material, accompanied by touching music of Deva Premal & Miten. 

Meetings with Remarkable People

Meetings with Remarkable People has developed from the people that I have met over a long life. I feel particularly fortunate to have met so many remarkable people in my life.

Michael Barnett, who was a main therapist in Osho’s ashram, famous for his incredible energy seminars, became close when I interviewed him for my book European Masters from the Blueprints for Awakening Series. Inviting him to our community last year where he gave his brilliant talk was the last impulse for me to start put together this book. Michael passed away on November 12th 2019. 
    During my time in Lucknow with Papaji, I visited Kainchi Ashram where I came in resonance with Neem Karoli Baba. Later I met his disciple Krishna Das. I am so happy to have have had the chance to interview Krishna Das who’s music is so deeply touching. During the Interview Neem Karoli Baba’s presence was felt strongly in the room.
    I had a beautiful Meeting in Amsterdam some years ago with Gangaji. We met in a classic Dutch Hotel situated on a canal busy with small boats. Gangaji, besides being a remarkable woman, is one of the best known and loved Papaji Teachers.

Interview with Krishna Das

If we know anything about a Path at all, it’s only because of the great Beings that have gone before us. Out of their love, out of their kindness, they have left some footprints for us to follow. So in the same way that THEY which for us, we wish that all beings everywhere be safe, be happy, happy have good health and enough to eat.

I am not in control of life, I am at the service of life. I am waiting to hear what the latest instructions are, the latest demands and commands are. That for me is beautiful. It is not a burden, I am not a slave to life. I am a bride to life, and I am thrilled with that.
