In addition to that, Harijan Maharaj has also co-produced a movie about the search for the guru, called Guru. Director of the movie is Tamas Toth. It has been shot in February 2010, during the Kumbha Mela in Vrindavan and the premier exhibition took place last december. According to Maharaj the movie has participated in international festivals.
In the film, the aging traveling-salesman Ramdas after a long life of hard work retires and returns to his homeland together with his wife. But after his wife's sudden death, Ramdas finds himself all alone. He turns to an astrologer for advice on whose recommendation he sets out on a pilgrimage to a holy place in search of a guru.
And least but not last, Harijan Maharaj is currently organizing a world photo exhibition. Juhasz Balazs's photo-exhibition "India – My Dream" started its journey around the globe from its opening at the Urania National Film theater in Budapest. The final intended stop for this suggestive photo-exhibition will be in India.
This journeying showing of the photos intends to draw attention to the mutual values inherent in all the ancient traditions throughout the world, thus expressing the spiritual oneness of the world's many lands and countries.
Leaving the European continent it will move to North and South America.
The world – uniting exhibit will arrive in India in the spring of 2013 for the festivities of "holi". Holi is an ancient festival in India to greet the spring. It is the celebration of colors and togetherness; the victory of good over evil.
