A young man journeys to India & has to choose between the miracles he sees & life as he knew it

American Yogi is a film about events that sound like science fiction to the average Westerner, as it explores the spiritual wisdom of India which is now flowing westward. Many believe that the wisdom of the east is a key if our planet is to continue being a healthy ecosystem for all earthly habitation.
The wisdom traditions need to be appealing to Westerners for them to pay attention. This film is inspiring, entertaining and FUN, and embodies the love which the movie is all about.

People who have not made the trip to India or met a guru like Maharaj-ji will find ‘American Yogi’ an inspiration for their spiritual journey.
