Hi Rajeev,
The Swaminarayan group (Akshardam temple) are followers of the saint Swaminarayan who was in turn a follower of Sri Ramanuja Acharya the great Vaishnavite saint who advocated the Vasishtadwaita philosophy. Hence, all Swaminarayan group members follow the Vasishtadwaita philosphy and are Vaishnavites. Interestingly, Swaminarayan members who are mainly Gujratis sing teh Divya Prabhandam which is a Tamil collection of hymns for Lord Vishnu.

SEE THE TRAILER.

This film is absolutely awe-inspiring. It will move you.

My God--this movie shows Hindus and Hinduism in a GOOD light. What will the English-language media in India do????

I'd like to read their review of this film!

I have seen this film here in Omnimax in Singapore. It was screened here in conjunction with the India tourism promotion. The film is good - but of course there should have been a disclaimer that it focuses on the Swaminarayan group.

Why is a disclaimer required? Why is it so important to note that ths film originates with the Swaminarayan group?
