Kumare presents himself as an enlightened guru from the East who builds a following of disciples in the West. But Kumare is not a real guru. He is American filmmaker, Vikram Gandhi, who has transformed himself into guru Kumare, acting as the centerpiece of a social experiment designed to explore and test one of the world's most sacred taboos.
Concealing his true identity from all he meets, Kumare attracts a colorful cast of followers and forges profound, spiritual connections with real 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 he reveals his greatest teaching: his true self. A playful yet genuine and insightful look at belief and spirituality, the film crosses a line few have dared to cross, all to discover: from illusion comes truth.
A film by Vikram Gandhi [83 minutes]
