The Seekers

Partibhan

Sometimes the worst situations in life can draw the best out of people. A young man who hates all forms of spirituality because his father, now a world renowned guru had abandoned his mother and him to pursue spirituality. He is chased by goons to repay a huge debt he had taken to treat his mother unsuccessfully from cancer. Partibhan is forced by his circumstances to take up being a Guru at the ashram of his father after he takes Samadhi. Not a believer, he flaunts all rules of the ashram while whiling away the two year clause of guruship imposed on him. One day, repulsed by his gluttony he decides to take up his role seriously. While studying the ways of the disciples at his ashram, Partibhan comes to the conclusion that the whole approach is bookish and the spirituality of his seekers stops the moment the discourses are over. To test if the spiritual laws are even practical, he sets out on a 600 km journey on foot without any money and belongings with his seekers. The path breaking journey is transformational not only for him but his followers as well who discover amazing insights.
