Quotes of our special guests and our audience:
“Many times I see people on their spiritual paths and they do a lot of effort trying to transform themselves and are very absorbed in this and I see Paramjyoti has always been longing to unite cultures and to bring people together. She put the focus not on transforming something inside herself as much, she is giving a blossoming to her life by bringing people together. She is giving and the result is here. This is a different approach than what I see in most people on their spiritual path, who get stuck in their own transformation. I know Paramjyoti more than 20 years and she has never changed that. It has always been her ambition and it is exactly that which I love. MANDALA movie is at least the third expression of this intention and I am looking forward to the next.” Darta Molitor
“Ich wünsche Dir künstlerische Herzens-Kraft für die Projekte die Du in eine Welt gibst die in Not ist und in der viel Orientierungslosigkeit ist, da es nicht klar ist, wie wir mit diesen großen Umwerfungen umgehen sollen. Es ist ausgesprochen wichtig positive Energie in die Welt zu setzen und den Friedensgedanken ganz sicher nicht aufzugeben. Wir können gute Energie in die Welt hinausgeben, Friedensenergie und Engagement weil wir im Kontakt sind mit unseren eigenen inneren Herzgeist-Ressourcen. Es ist ganz wichtig, dass wir den inneren Reichtum kontaktieren können und dass wir auf der Basis davon, vernetzt mit anderen in die Welt, diesen hinausgeben und Impulse setzen. Viel Mut, Kraft und Inspiration!” Lama Irene
The movie is so beautiful, it’s really heart opening. The colours, the music the joy is very incredible. I fully agree with dance, we can uplift the heart of so many people suffering. Here is what I found Shri Ma speaking about dance: “The eternal Dance is always happening. From the waves of the ocean to the tiniest movement of the body is a dance. Divine itself is in the form of Dance. When you let Dance happen, then all the sorrows and sufferings are removed.“ Swami Gurusharanananda
