Short Cut to Nirvana

The Kumbh Mela is the biggest gathering of people in the history of humanity--although few in the West have ever heard of it. More than 70 million pilgrims attend this extraordinary spiritual festival, which has been held every 12 years near Allahabad, India, for over two millennia. A vast tent city is established to accommodate the masses, and many of India's greatest gurus and spiritual leaders set up camp to give discourses to their devotees. This documentary takes a voyage of discovery through this vivid and vibrant world, accompanied by an irrepressible young Hindu monk, Swami Krishnanand and several Westerners, each on their own spiritual quest. In English and Hindi with English subtitles. 85 minutes Unrated.
