5,000 gurus, 200,000 sadhus, millions of pilgrims and beggars! Every 12 years they meet in a salutary place on the Ganges. There one finds teaching, praying, singing, dancing, bathing and wondering. Bizarre bodily practices, like lifting a 30kg stone with the penis; deep insights ("I leave myself to existence, I trust it."); selflessness; and vanity ("In India, there are 7 wonders and I am one of them.")—At this "spring fair of spirituality," there is room for everything. Who are these people who attract millions of pilgrims and curios from all over the world? Are they wise, holy, enlightened or just crazy? "Next Exit Nirvana" presents the everyday culture of India against the backdrop of the Kumbh Mela, the biggest festival in Hinduism.
