A new 37-minute documentary entitled “Seeking Shelter: The Life & Legacy of Bhakti Charu Swami” is set to premiere on ISKCON News and Youtube on July 24th, as part of the global celebration on the beloved ISKCON guru’s disappearance day.
“The pandemic has claimed millions of lives — ordinary humans, celebrities and saintly people alike — leaving loved ones grappling with the tragic loss and burning existential questions such as ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’ and ‘Where do we find shelter from the tragedies of human life?’” reads the film’s official summary. “Among the lost treasures is the world-renowned spiritual teacher Bhakti Charu Swami from Bengal, India, who passed away due to complications from Covid-19 on July 4th, 2020, in Orlando, Florida, at the age of 74. This documentary captures his major life events and achievements while providing a glimpse into his inner journey seeking ultimate shelter (‘saranagati’), through his own words, music and art.”
