About

A chronicle of 7 days in the life of Kalidas in LA, who has had the unique experience of spending over a decade in spiritual communities.  We are invited to see Kalidas as he intends to embark on his own personal kind of spiritual test where he tries to reach his highest potential through a series of marathon-type walks, a strict diet, specific mantra and kirtan chants, and Seva (selfless service). There will be a heavy emphasis on translating less well-known points of yogic philosophy and the "sadhu" way of life (one who relies on the grace of God rather than material comforts). This combined with Kalidas' unconventional point of view and friends will make it an entertaining and humorous account of a guy who is caught living like a spiritual dinosaur in the grind of modern day high-tech society that for the most part could care less. Also Kalidas' life as a sacred Kirtan chant musician will be revealed. Kalidas remains strangely optimistic and driven, and we're all wondering why!
