Roaming India in 1939 and the early 1940s, two flawed but extraordinary men latch onto each other with shocking consequences as each follows an ill-fated quest for “enlightenment.” Moses, a Polish Jew, is fleeing both the Nazis and his own failed marriage; Sahadeva, an itinerant Hindu monk, is trying to resolve his crisis of religious belief. Both men find themselves embroiled in hardship, shame, and chaos, stumbling into scandal and ultimately tragedy. As they clutch obsessively to observance and mysticism - Moses to ancient texts of Jewish symbolism and prophesy, Sahadeva to Hindu rituals—they must confront the ultimate question of whether they are really seeking or merely hiding, and whether they can ever end the cycle of trouble they seem to bring upon themselves. To answer these questions they look first to each other, but must finally face their own shortcomings and fears and stare into the face of “Adam Kadmon,” the name the Kabbalah gives to the original soul from which all men are descended. Will they ever be able to honestly see the damage they have caused and seek forgiveness—or will they continue running from themselves? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dolph Amick.

The poet Kabîr is one of the most interesting personalities in the history of Indian mysticism. Born in or near Benares of Mohammedan parents and probably about the year 1440, be became in early life a disciple of the celebrated Hindu ascetic Râmânanda. Râmânanda had brought to Northern India the religious revival that Râmânuja, the great 12th-century reformer of Brâhmanism, had initiated in the South. This revival was in part a reaction against the increasing formalism of the orthodox cult, in part an assertion of the demands of the heart as against the intense intellectualism of the Vedânta philosophy, the exaggerated monism that that philosophy proclaimed. It took in Râmânuja's preaching the form of an ardent personal devotion to the God Vishnu, as representing the personal aspect of the divine nature: that mystical "religion of love" that everywhere makes its appearance at a certain level of spiritual culture. 1.
