An American Filmmaker's documentary about his time as a false prophet.


This is an amazing movie; a social experiment that illustrates many things.
US filmmaker Vikram Gandhi pretends to be an Indian spiritual leader called Kumare. Under this false prophet persona, Vikram starts a mystical, new age religious group and makes a movie / documentary out of it. Have you seen this movie? What were your thoughts?

Watched it the other day, thought it was fabulous. It showed how mankind is looking for answers outside of themselves while the answers are inside. It shows how easily people that are looking for a shepherd can become sheeple.

The star & director Vikram Gandhi says "It's about the general absurdity of what we all believe."

We are not alone. There is something out there bigger than ourselves. Where will you go after you die? What do you believe and why do you believe it? What is the point of having a mind if you never change it? Here's a surprisingly unsurprising statistic: Everyone dies sooner or later; there is no escaping it and you will be dead for longer than you are alive. This suggests that eternity might be worth more than a passing thought.

Are you ready for the inevitable? There is no need to be fearful of that inevitable moment, so long as you are prepared and as long as you are not taking comfort in something that sounds nice but is really just positive but wishful thinking. Make your life journey count, consider your eternal destination. Just believing in a lie wont make it truth, no matter how much you want it or how appealing that lie is. It is better to know the truth than to live in the delusion of a lie. No one likes being deceived, but in a world of political correctness, acceptance and anything goes, it is easy to side-step the truth of reality. What REALLY is true?

Can we just make up our own truth and say "well that is true for you, but my truth is something else"? Surely we can't all be right, especially when there are so many contradictory beliefs and top world religions out there.
