Directed by Jeremy Frindel (One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das), THE DOCTOR FROM INDIA is the fascinating story of Vasant Lad’s mission to bring the ancient healthcare system of wellness called Ayurveda from India to the West in the late 1970s..

Screening at 8pm, Saturday July 6th in Shays’ Lounge at The Stagecoach Tavern. Free Admission.

In this meditative, immersive portrait, with interviewees including Dr. Deepak Chopra, Frindel documents the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad who, fulfilling his destiny as foretold by his family guru, became a holistic health pioneer. Although Ayurveda was almost unknown when he first arrived from India, Dr. Lad helped to bring Ayurveda to the west, where it is becoming one of the most prominent alternative health systems in the world.
