‘The Descendants,’ based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings starring George Clooney is filming on Kauai and Oahu. The second unit film crew spent a couple hours in the rudraksha forest to capture a nature scene for the movie. There will actually only be 10 seconds in the movie, but the crew set up early and waited patiently all afternoon until the setting sun was just perfect. The director, confirms the lighting is now perfect.
Yoginathaswami looks through the camera. He said later that he never saw the forest looking so beautiful as it did through the camera.

Amazing… 10 people and all this equipment for what will be ten seconds in the final movie
The footage is part of the nature scenes which depict the beauty and sacredness of some land inherited by the star of the show.
The main actor has an awakening of sorts in his journey through life and comes to see the land of his fore-fathers as more than just a piece of real-estate to cash in on. Indeed, this Rudraksha grove fits that description! If the rest of the movie bears the beauty of these 10 seconds it should be a great show!
One Response to “"Descendants" Film Crew Uses Rudraksha Forest”
Unless kundalini is active, the deepest meditative states are not available to us. But to activate kundalini, Gurudeva tells us we must invoke the grace of Lord Ganesha and Lord Murugan. "Yoga is internalized worship which leads to union with God." Experience the inside of you in a profound way. This requires dispassion. The popular term "kriya yoga" usual refers to a form of pranayama, but the original kriya yoga is defined by Sage Patanajli as the practice of three of the niyamas: tapas, svadhyaya and Isvarapranidhana. To achieve samadhi we practice yoga, steady restraint of mental activities, austerity, meditation, detachment, self study and worship of God. Communion with the Ishta Devata, the chosen God is a key and also Gurudeva tells us: the Deity chooses you.
