Filming of Arun Gandhi and Tao Porchon-Lynch

96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch and 81-year-old Arun Gandhi, July 9, 2015

On Thursday, July 9th, 2015, I had the honor of interviewing Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, 81-year-old Arun Gandhi, alongside my dear teacher 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be in the presence of two people who had first-hand experiences with the “great soul”, Mohandas Gandhi. Both Arun and Tao have a philosophical lineage that is similar–influenced by Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo and Mohandas Gandhi. Yet, they grew up in very different environments.
