The below short video is of a clip from “River of Silence” (English subtitles) – which is a documentary project about the search for silence, truth and spiritual awakening.
The film accompanies a small group of travellers from Germany and Switzerland to North India. The group is led by two spiritual teachers Padma Wolff and Torsten Brügge -- who are well known in the growing Satsang-Movement in Germany. Padma received her spiritual name from her teacher H.W.L. Poonja (1910-1997) – also called Papaji.
Papaji was an awakened Master, who lived in the city of Luknow and liked to spend his time in the forested area near Rishikesh. The cooler area in the hills close to the Ganges served as his summer resort.
In the interview at “Papaji’s Cave” Padma and Torsten answer questions about the relevance and importance of visiting spiritual places, contemplation, and of nature as teacher.
Padma Wolff and Torsten Brugge regularly bring Retreat groups to India.
