"Jordan uses a bagful of camera and editing techniques that bring multi-limbed deities into bone-rattling motion; the sacred art images are intercut with views of lotus blossoms, skies and other features of the natural landscape, which enhance the lush, sumptuous quality of the visual effects .... [S]ynchronized masterfully to a sound track of chanted mantras and ritual music." - Thomas Albright, San Francisco Chronicle

"A monumental effort that is laced with brilliant artistry, moments of deep impact." - San Francisco Chronicle
