The Brindavan Chronicle – Genesis
Author: John Thompson
In a remote valley in the Devonshire hills lies a peaceful haven – a monastic refuge of peace and tranquillity. Led by the charismatic guru Govinda, Brindavan seems to offer a perfect opportunity for those looking for spiritual enlightenment, as well as a temporary respite for those seeking to escape the cares of the outside world.
Brindavan. A place of sanctuary. A Godly place.
Anthony – world weary and disillusioned seeks just what Brindavan offers. Sheila has no inclination towards a monastic life but, compelled to abandon her studies due to an unplanned pregnancy, is offered sanctuary by Govinda. Dr. Chaudhury, a devout Hindu, seeks the guru’s spiritual intercession in an endeavour to resolve the very different problems posed by his daughters.
All of them believe that Govinda has the answers – but are they right? Is Govinda all that they believe him to be? And what will be the price that he demands?
