The Highest Pass (2012)

Available worldwide

Some of the most dangerous roads in the world are atop the highest passes of the Himalayas in Northern India. Adam Schomer and his Yogi Guru, Anand Mehrotra, decide to take a motorcycle journey along these roads. A team of seven riders agree to accompany them on what will become the journey of a lifetime.

Anand reveals that he has discovered a prophecy on his birth chart foretelling of his death in an accident at the age of 27. Despite the prophecy, the team treks on, inspired by the words of wisdom dispensed by Anand. However, wisdom in words and wisdom in practice can be very different indeed. As Adam traverses these roads with his teacher, he faces the ultimate question: Is truly living worth dying for?

A movie that reminds us to breathe and face our fears, doubt and obstacles. Appreciate the life lessons that are good and bad.

I love everything about this movie. The music is fantastic. The cameras were great. And of course the story and the participants are all inspiring. I recommend this movie if you want to feel very good.

I loved it! What a journey. I've never been to the Highest Pass on a motorcycle but I've been there in my heart. I love this documentary! Thank you for sharing it.

Loved this beautiful illustrates the battle of consciousness we are all in right now...All thoughts at any moment can be either based on fear or love. Never both at the same time. Will we choose fear or love?

This shows how they became conscious of their choice...the trip was just a life we all face...who doesn't have a drama? But how you choose to see it , thru the eyes of love or fear, defines how it effects you for the rest of your living days.

I had to turn this off 20 minutes in.

Watching a bunch of white people on a pseudo-spiritual journey on motorcycles...ugh. Seriously, there's nothing spiritual about getting a bunch of inexperienced 1st world people on motorcycles and watching them fumble about on on 3rd world roads and glorify their journey as some sort of epic, spiritual adventure?

Perhaps they got down to some real spiritual practice/teachings later in the film, but I won't even fold my laundry with this in the background.

At first...I felt the same. A bunch of pretty soft boys in their pricey gear wouldn't make it an hour here in Oklahoma! much less weeks traversing the Himalayas. But I gave the film a chance and just enjoyed the gorgeous scenery and then I was pleasantly surprised that they indeed GREW and learned and moved in love. I had to suspend my judgement filter to keep only love in my bucket...and this brought me joy.

That's OK. It's just not the right time. It's all OK.

Hey bro, sounds like you're saying these guys should apologize for BEING white people. I'm sure you well know that Krishna gives us the bodies He gives us in our various incarnations to learn and develop spiritually. So shouldn't that include people with white bodies?

I'm not saying this to be chastising, just suggesting you--and all of us, myself included--come from the heart of compassion. Nowadays, and since the 1960s, it's been kinda sucky to be white, the implication being that all white folks are colonialists and self-indulgent yuppie third world wanabees at best. Are they? What I think should be kept in mind is this: play the cards in your hand to the best of your ability, do no harm, and stop wasting your time wishing you had a full house instead of a pair of aces.

Sad that you are so cynical and have no patience - part of the quick gratification society I guess. If you had stuck with the film after the first 20 minutes, you would have seen it all unfold, along with the lessons, and the beauty of the surroundings. I wish you peace, patience and non-judgement for your Yogi journey.

VajraYogi, posted on December 30, 2012

Thanks, Judith. Perhaps I'll give it another shot later, but I was pretty turned off by the first 20 minutes. Discrimination is different than judgement. We need to call things out as they are and spend our time appropriately. This is an age of rampant spiritual materialism, and there are many things posited as "spiritual" that are not worth taking the time to watch, listen to, etc.

Sorry, but 'its not fair'. How you introduce us to all these lovely titles and previews and then not make them available to us. Please,please make these titles available to the members around the rest of the world, as well USA and Canada. So that we can all benefit. Thanks and much love.

One of my favorite quotes in the movie; You can not hold fear, and love in the same bucket. A wonderful movie, and journey.

debilg, posted on December 9, 2012

very good movie, overcoming the fears of self safety, what we are truly capable of when we have the courage to step through the fear.

hongirl, posted on December 8, 2012

Very good movie, a wonderful visual reminder of our own imminent death, and how we can learn to choose to live our lives without fear, but with an openness and trust that is necessary to live fully, and the only way we can do that is to emerge beyond the fear and lies our minds tell us is the truth, when in fact, it is not.
