Kumare: A "must see" for anyone interested in Mind-Body

Hi All,

I had not heard of this remarkable documentary film from 2011. Came upon it tonight on the Aussie Channel by chance while searching for something that would hold my attention while riding my exercise bike. Well, Kumare did that and much more, all the way to the end. As an added bonus, I rode my exercise bike for 65 minutes!

Vikram Gandhi is a talented young filmmaker with an infectious sense of humor, a charming sincerity, and also, I think, a bit of the scoundrel about him. You will have to see the film and decide for yourself whether this New Age version of Professor Harold "Music Man" Hill is indeed a scoundrel or paradoxically a great teacher. After it was all over, the subjects or victims of his documentary bring in a split decision. You can watch the film merely as entertainment, or, if you are brave, use it as a lesson to help you get in touch with the deep yearning for "something" that most of feel who are attracted to the Big Tent of Mind-Body and the "spiritual" path. The experience of Vikram's subjects is humbling if you allow it to show you, as Mr. Gurdjieff emphasized, your own  credulity, superstition and gullibility. Or as Dr. Albert Ellis demurely describes people as "out of their fucking minds!"

If there were requirements for membership at Mind-Body Thailand (Don't worry, there aren't!), watching this amazing film with an open mind and open heart would be one of them.

Enjoy!
