In an ashram in southern India, life is built around spiritual reflection. A new documentary, "Gurukulam," dives deep into that world by following a Hindu teacher and his students. Their rituals, set against the backdrop of a beautiful remote forest, complement the fundamental questions they raise about the nature of existence and identity.
The Huffington Post has an exclusive trailer for the film, directed by religious scholars Neil Dalal and Jillian Elizabeth. Exploring the rich textures of its setting, the trailer signals a documentary that offers rare insight into a corner of the world ripe with sacred contemplation. "Gurukulam" opens in limited release on June 3.
