“Beyond” Varanasi, India. . . . . . Sadhu Documentary

I love when this happens on WordPress.  A  very talented  blogger, Seta Rasa,http://sitarasa.com/ sent me this amazing video of three young photographers in Varanasi filming Sadhus. I know it is long, but for those of you who are interested, here it is.  I am not trying to trick you into watching it, but I did really like the last part as the photographers said goodbye to their Sadhu friends. Oh, I would love to have an  extended time in Varanasi!

This Is Incredible India! 

Just a closing memory. . .  I had the same reaction of utter silence and no words to speak on my first visit  to this compelling city, as did the photographer on his first day. I noticed the students did, too.  It is so foreign and memorizing ,all that is possible is silent observation. Varanasi  is  total immersion into  life, faith, and death. . . . three very personal and powerful life experiences.

    Thank you, this film made my day. While watching it at sunrise, there was a double rainbow out my window.

  3. Wow, what a poignant film. I loved how it not only introduces the viewer to Varanassi, but also highlights their creative process. I am so glad that I took the time to watch it, and even more grateful that you shared it, Annet. Thank you.
