The Ashram Children: I Am No Body, I Have No Body
For 20 years, Jonathan, the filmmaker grew up in Jerusalem and in an Ashram in India, which he had to keep secret. In the Ashram he was taught to dedicate his life to the Guru, to always think of him. That way, one could finally reach their goal in life, awaken from the illusion, realize the “truth”, and become enlightened.
20 years (and a lot of therapy) later, the director sets on a journey to understand the secret he was forced to keep, the effect it has on him even now, to find out what happened to the other Ashram children, and to finally understand: had he been raised in a cult?
