From 1935 to 1950, a number of visitors to Sri Ramanasramam shot films of the Maharshi and his environs. Taken mostly by his devotees, these films give us a remarkable opportunity to view a fully-enlightened sage who, in the 20th century, lived like an ancient rishi of yore.
In 1990, the complete collection of archival films were brought to the U.S.A. for restoration, preservation and editing. Two of these films were professionally produced as newsreels with a soundtrack by the Indian Information Bureau and shown throughout India in cinema houses.
This sixty-five minute video is a visual document of a man made perfect by virtue of a unique destiny. Spiritual freedom, eternal peace and joy can be realized by those devoted seekers whose destinies are linked to the Sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi.
