Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
For over two millennia pilgrims and gurus from across the globe have been coming together every twelve years to attend the Kumbh Mela - a celebration that is widely considered to be the largest gathering of humanity on the planet. Though the Kumbh Mela has been shrouded in mystery in the eyes of western civilization, the secrets of this rapturous gathering are now revealed as cameras take a look into the very heart of the festival and speak with those in attendance about what the Kumbh Mela truly means to them. A special appearance by the Dali Lama takes viewers further than ever into this wondrous gathering while offering a glimpse of sheer ecstasy rarely experienced by western culture.
