Ascetics with Cameras promo-teaser version092210

Uploaded on Sep 22, 2010 Ascetics with Cameras is a seva (volunteer service) organization providing multimedia services, tools and training to Shiva's Army -- the sadhus & sadhvis of Juna Akhara -- since 2004. It is our mission to not only provide multimedia tools to document and preserve the living-histories of these followers of Sanatan Dharma, but more importantly to train the members (of the oldest and largest order of Dasnaami Hindu ascetics) to document it for themselves. Giving them the skills to share with the world the stories and aspects of their culture they find important, will empower these ascetics to participate in the process of media-making to which their Akhara has been subject for centuries and enlighten audiences to the sacred, ancient paths and esoteric traditions of truth seekers. When you are on the outside looking in, it's sometimes difficult to get the story, much less get the story right... To support our mission we run various types of Community Outreach Programs & Projects geared towards both Cross-Cultural Exchange & Experiential Multimedia Education. PROJECTS & PROGRAMS: • Photo Giveaways • Multimedia Archives • Photography Training Program • "Her-story" Video Production Program • Juna Akhara Documentary Project • Seva Services Program PRODUCTION CREDITS: producer/director/editor: Nicole Jaquis photography (video & stills): Daya Bharti Devi Giri DeWitt Davis Durga Giri Ekadasi Giri Gita Giri Haridwar Giri Hem Giri Jaganani Giri Kedar Puri Kotwal Shyama Puri Mahant Durga Giri Mahant Hare Ram Giri Mahant Hari Giri Mahant Ishwar Giri Mahant Jamuna Puri Mahant Maina Giri Mahant Man Giri Mahant Meera Puri Mahant Yem Giri Mahant Yem Giri Mamarta Giri Manta Puri Maya Giri Meena Giri Narvada Giri Nicole Jaquis Om Dat Giri Oma Giri Pragya Pallavi Prem Giri Mai Radha Giri Rajrajeshwar Giri Rita Giri Santi Giri Shri Mahant Aradhana Giri Shri Mahant Hira Giri Shri Mahant Meera Puri, Shri Mahant Uma Giri Sonal Argawal Tejaswini Giri Tila Giri Music: Dream Temple from the album Jadur Madur by Dream Tree Project, w/ Adham Shaikh Sanskrit Chanting: Mahant Jamuna Puri Audio Mix: Nicole Jaquis Intern: Bleue Liverpool Category Nonprofits & Activism License Standard YouTube License
