A European gives his impression of Hinduism in India with this film: the great diversity of the Hindu pantheon and the variety of rituals, all based on a fundamental idea of the "Oneness" of people and nature. The film also gives information on the modern condition of Hinduism and its effects on the lives and mentality of the Hindus.


Individual scenes: river Ganges - the city of Benares - a Hindu temple - a mourning procession - chewing betel nuts - the magic eye (painting a forehead) - holy cows - flower sacrifices and the body of a child on the river - the burning grounds of Benares - a prayer to the streams.
