Hello all,

I'm looking for articles, essays, etc. on "Forest of Bliss", by Robert
Gardner.  Some issues I'm  interested in are movement, mysticism, material
and spiritual transformation, paths and journeys, time and timelessness, the
sacred vs. the profane, balance and Hindu belief, ritual, and Benares the

Any help is much appreciated.  I welcome opinions and insights into the
movie and Gardner's work as well.
