This is a short award-winning 30-minute documentary depicting a beautiful man in a beautiful place.

Find a quiet place and time and treat yourself to this work of love.

From a review I found by Jade Budowski. Link to the entire review is below along with Netflix feature trailer.

“Directed by Derek Peck, Ram Dass, Going Home doesn’t attempt to encapsulate Ram Dass’ entire life; instead, we meet him right where he is, patiently experiencing his world and understanding the value of living in the present. There’s no conflict to resolve, no dramatic stakes at play. We are here to learn from a man who continues to show an extraordinary amount of grace and joy despite what’s been thrown at him. Nearing the end of his life and having experienced a stroke some 20 years ago, Ram Dass is cared for by many, but this doesn’t halt his spiritual practice and contended existence. We see the world through his eyes, and the film makes you more acutely aware of your surroundings and the life that is hiding in even the most surprising of places.”
