In 1965, a lone holy man sets out across the ocean from India to America carrying nothing but a timeless message and a vision of a world united. in a time of war and disillusionment, he inspires a generation of youth, and against all odds forms an unstoppable spiritual revolution.
“Acharya” is the true story of AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the revolutionary pioneer of bhakti yoga in the Western world.
Yadubara das and Visakha dasi have been producing a movie called “Acarya” that depicts the life or Srila Prabhupada. This project is in its final stages and has been made possible by the combined efforts of many people and their financial support.

Official letter distributed by the producers
By Krishna’s grace we have all the funds needed to complete our 90 minute documentary film *Acharya *on Srila Prabhupada’s life. Now there are funds needed to distribute the film. We have interest from a top rate distribution company, Abramorama out of New York City who recently distributed *Eight Days a Week*, a film on the Beatles by Ron Howard. Abramorama’s CEO had this to say about *Acharya*:
*I watched your film. I think it’s terrific: consistently smart and interesting. I’m certain there’s an audience for it even beyond the core. *
Funds are needed to cover all aspects of distribution starting Feb. 1 with a release in early June in movie theaters throughout the USA and Canada. Abramorama’s services will continue for up to 1 year depending on public response to the film. International distribution will start in the fall of 2017.
*This is an exceptional opportunity to reveal to the public Srila Prabhupada’s pastimes and extraordinary achievements in such a short period of time. *
Please read the attached letter of appeal and distribute it to those directly and indirectly under your spiritual care, encouraging them to support this exciting project. Your donation by example would be very much appreciated.
Through wide distribution of the *Acharya* film, every devotee and all aspects of ISKCON will be benefitted. There will be an increase in book distribution and temple and festival attendance, resulting in a greater understanding and appreciation of Srila Prabhupada and his followers.
