“Kumaré” is a documentary starring filmmaker Vikram Gandhi. He transforms himself into Sri Kumaré, an enlightened guru from a fictional village in India, by adopting a fake Indian accent and growing out his hair and beard. Kumaré travels to Arizona to spread his made-up philosophy and gain sincere followers. Even though he is making it up, he finds that there are many people desperation for spiritual guidance that are easily convinced and willing to follow him. The film raises lots of questions about spirituality, human gullibility, and the role of spiritual leaders. He certainly shows how easy it is for those with ill intentions to build a cult-like following. The point of the documentary was to show that anyone can be a “Guru”.
Vikram’s story and documentation is an intrinsically effective one for anyone who has been on the path of conscious awakening.
