2018-03-08 06:00

THE premier of the new documentary Hare Krishna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami Who Started It All aired for one night only, on February 22, at Ster Kinekor at Shelly Beach.

The documentary, directed by John Greisser, Jean Greisser and Lauren Ross, was based on a 70-year-old Swami who travelled to America.

The movie is based on the Swami’s journey of a worldwide phenomenon known as the Hare Krishna Movement, teaching Vedic scriptures to those who listened.

It tells the story of how one man was able to captivate an entire generation of people seeking answers to life’s difficult questions.

People from all over the South Coast and parts of KZN were present at the one-night only screening.

Tickets were sold out within a week and movie theatres were filled with audiences eager to be a part of what some call the continuation of the Swami Sirla Prabhupada’s (spiritual teacher) teachings.
