A Documentary Film about Faith was shown at the annual British Association for the Study of Religions (BASR) conference, which was held at Winchester University on Thursday evening 6th September. The screening of the film, which explores the devotional world of ISKCON, with a particular focus on the lives of His Holiness Radhanath Swami and his Finnish disciple Keshava Madhava das, was enthusiastically received by all who attended the event.

The audience of some 60 conference participants, many of whom were distinguished and highly celebrated British and international religious studies scholars, commented that the film was both inspirational and a helpful resource for use on academic courses of study. Dr Graham Dwyer and Dr Anna King (Winchester University) introduced the film and responded to questions about it. As they were both central in the making of “Leap”, especially in terms of the research they carried out for it and in their role as advisers to the award winning Finnish film director Jouko Aaltonen, they offered informative and welcome comment about the film.

    Dear Graham I’m so happy to see how wonderful was the program. Thank you very much for your fantastic service to Srila Prabhupada and all our previous acharyas. They surely are very happy with you and they are giving you all blessings. Why? Because you are presenting ISKCON practices ‘as it is’. Now all these academics have a bonafide source to research about the purposes of the Sankirtan movement.

    But how you could interpreted in a true way? How you could have this vision, sometimes difficult even for an initiated devotee? We only can say that you approached Lord Krishna and Srila Prabhupada in a very sincere and honest way! Congratulations, you are a very rare and very intelligent person.

    Looking forward to see you in Sri Mayapur,

    your friend,
    Nitya Kishor dd
