"Darshan - The Embrace" chronicles her journey throughout India and traveling with her inner circle to visit with her disciples. This intimate documentary captures her charisma and loving spirit by talking with her and those close to her.

This is further illustrated as the people of India wait for hours on line just to hear her captivating speeches, and upon the conclusion line up again to get a hug from her. She is an absolute inspiration to all, and a comfort to those who have little hope to cling to.
