Just watched this excellent indy film, one of the finest religion / new age films you can see




Kumare is a wise guru from the East who indoctrinated a group of followers in the West. Kumare, however, is not real--he is the alter ego of American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi, who impersonated a spiritual leader for the sake of a social experiment designed to challenge one of the most widely accepted taboos: that only a tiny "1%" can connect the rest of the world to a higher power. Concealing his true identity from everyone he meets, Kumare forges profound and spiritual connections with people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram, the filmmaker, is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity, Kumare unveils his true identity to a core group of disciples who are knee-deep in personal transformation. Will they accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? KUMARE, at once playful and profound, is an insightful look at faith and belief.

Never heard of this before, but I enjoy mystic teachings from all over, so this sounds interesting

You may want to watch the trailer. This started off as a kind of "Borat" type documentary exposing fraud in the new age movement but ended up evolving into something no one expected. It's really a great movie. It's hilarious at times but ends up surprising you as the story develops and it becomes something much deeper.
