yen Guru Wai

Yen Guru Wai (Calling Upon the Guru) portrays the life and legacy of the late Pujari Basdeo Mangal, and documents his spiritual voyage over several decades. Through the film, we bare witness to the realization of Pujar’s dream of spreading the sacred Mariamman spiritual tradition across the Americas. Award-winning director, Manauvaskar Kublall, documents the impact of this vibrant and innovative leader and his Karagam Pujas—sacred rituals—where the Divine Mother Goddess, Mariamma, is summoned from the ocean to bestow healing to devotees amongst a backdrop of drumming and singing.

Indo-Caribbeans were brought to British colonies such as Guyana, starting in 1838, as Indentured laborers after the abolition of African slavery. In the face of an oppressive system that threatened cultural continuity, physical abuse and ailments, emotional and psychological trauma, spiritual traditions such as the one documented in Yen Guru Wai were resurrected as a form of healing. Through the courageous journey of Basdeo Mangal, this film imparts an inspiring story of a people's power to heal themselves spiritually.
