Getting Ahimsa back into action! Help us spread the message and finish the film.
“The Land of Ahimsa” is a feature length documentary that follows Dolly Vyas-Ahuja on her journey to veganism. Dolly narrates and produces the film, alongside Bollywood actor Aryeman, who directs.
“The Land of Ahimsa” will strive to inspire and encourage the people of India to reclaim their true role as keepers of the spiritual heart of Mother Earth, India. Ahimsa is the most beautiful word written in any language in any time, according to Phillip Wollen, featured in the documentary. True Ahimsa is embodied in a vegan lifestyle.
The world is waking up to the truth that all animals are intelligent beings and deserve a chance to live. Veganism is steadily growing all around the world as people are recognizing the impact of animal exploitation on climate and health.
Throughout the film, we interview plant-based doctors, athletes, animal activists, entrepreneurs, and visit sanctuaries to illustrate the importance of “Ahimsa” in action in India with the intention this will resonate across the globe. We demonstrate how by rising to the true meaning of the word, we are able to create a non-violent world which will relieve suffering of all living beings, improve our health and wellness, and allow us to live in a clean environment.
The film follows Dolly as she returns to her homeland after having discovered the power of “Ahimsa” through her transition to a vegan lifestyle. She relates her experience to that of her grandfather, who was a freedom fighter who marched alongside Gandhi to liberate India from British rule. Similarly, the film shows her strength in fighting for justice of all beings through the Animal Liberation March. She uses her own voice to expose the truth about the cruelty of the Dairy industry by educating others through her presentations at various events throughout India and the US.
We will show viewers how accessible it is to put “Ahimsa” into action in their daily lives. After watching the film, we believe viewers will feel motivated to choose peace over violence and fight against injustices.
