Through The Eastern Gate is a documentary film about the aspirations, practices and beliefs of three young Westerners who follow three different eastern spiritual traditions. Filmed in the gorgeous countryside and ancient cities of India and Turkey, this intimate and compelling film delves into the worlds of people who have turned their backs on the material to find new transcendent meaning in their lives.

Format: DVD
highly recommended - just at the right level: the filmmakers are interested in showing spiritual practice in action, as a daily reality. the film is accessible yet addresses points that will be useful to both the initiate & the more seasoned spiritual traveler, all delivered in an unsentimental, highly personal manner. it is a hard clear look, rare to find in this genre of film which usually sinks into romanticized idealism, superficiality & confusion between spirituality, new-age & liberal politics. this is the real thing!!!

Format: DVD
This film takes you on an intimate journey into the lives of three young people who chose to make their spiritual practice their biggest commitment in life. It lets you discover their worlds through poignant and personal interviews and videos that reveal passionate portraits of rare spiritual seekers. There is no one today looking at Eastern traditions through the eyes of such young and sincere people, and showing that these paths are viable in today's crazy world. Faith is rewarded with fulfillment. If you wondered whether a fully spiritual life is truly possible in the modern era, the answer is yes and these beautiful souls will show you the way.

Format: DVD
This documentary follows three young individuals on their spiritual journey, through various paths. What I liked most, though, were the interviews with the spiritual leaders of these highlighted individuals in the Special Features. Each of the interviews was candid, very informative, and heartwarming. I enjoyed this film very much!
