Short Cut To Nirvana

This fascinating documentary on the Kumbh Mela provides a glimpse into the longest running religious festival, and the largest human gathering in history. We follow several western pilgrims as they visit the many gurus and babas gathered in their individual compounds and interact with a cheerful young swami who serves as a guide, interpreter and interviewer. The video footage and stills capture a pure, non-judgmental view into the heart of both the pilgrims and the gurus. And the exclusive footage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama underscores the spirit of harmony, diversity and acceptance that pervades throughout the film. Overall, Short Cut To Nirvana is beautifully filmed, well produced and packaged with worth seeing bonus material: interviews with the western pilgrims four years after the Mela, extended conversations with five spiritual teachers, and an interview with the film-makers.
