Dawn of the Abyss. The Spiritual Birth of Swamiji
61 minutes — To Be Announced, DCP, Fabrice Blue, Canada, 2016
The Ottawa film premiere of “Dawn of the Abyss. The Spiritual Birth of Swamiji.”
This documentary reveals an awakening inspired by the life of the Benedictine monk Henri Le
Saux. After living in a monastery in Brittany for 20 years, he left for South India with the objective of bringing the best of Christian monastic life with him. To achieve his goal, he
believed it important to first open himself to the spiritual heart of India. In doing so he
encountered Ramana Maharshi, one of the great sages of his time, at the foot of the sacred
mountain Arunachala. The impact of this meeting on him was so powerful that Le Saux’s initial
plan was turned upside down. In the presence of this mystical mountain, and its Sage, Le Saux
began a spiritual adventure that would lead to his own rebirth.
