This documentary takes us on a pilgrimage in the company of this disciple of Zen and a group of young monks and nuns to Bodh Gaya, the source of Buddhism. We are thus able to follow the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and his companions. The practice of mindfulness advocated by Thich Nhat Hanh is not limited to any particular religion or culture. This meditative film invites the viewer to follow these “steps of mindfulness”, and to take a journey into the self.
