A Personal Encounter
DVD, 2013, 60 minutes
Hundreds of thousands of people meet him every year. Braco, the man from Zagreb (Croatia), is famous for his “giving gaze”, which causes wondrous things to happen. Countless reports speak of experiences and emotions like peace, harmony, love and a new optimistic outlook. Many people talk about a new zest for life, improvements within their family and job situations or even about improvements in the area of health.
This deeply moving film, directed by Thomas Eich, depicts the life and mission of Josip Grbavac, better known as Braco, with intuitive understanding. His everyday life becomes a spiritual life in the service of humankind after he has met his mentor, friend and kind teacher, Ivica Prokic. This momentous encounter with Ivica causes Braco to step on his spiritual path. Many fellow travelers on this path, friends and visitors describe their very personal encounters as well as very moving experiences with this man who selflessly wants people to partake of what he feels within himself, this boundless love and harmony, which he derives from a higher source.
Braco once said: “I only do what I have to do. Sometimes it is enough to just open a door so that something good, something positive can start to happen.”
May this film also be a very personal encounter between you and Braco.
