Description:Tired of living in the modern world, where ‘‘having’’ is more important than ‘‘being’’, Marcel decides to go to India to tap into a source of wisdom that is thousands of years old, and still alive. This inner quest begins on Mount Arunachala, in the south of India, and continues to the source of the Ganges River, at Badrinath, in the heart of the Himalayas. On this long journey, Marcel meets and listens to many gurus who give him teachings on self-knowledge.
