Fear is the Master

In this hard-hitting cinematic documentary, ex-followers reveal secrets of life under the domination of India’s infamous free sex guru, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, self-proclaimed God of the Universe.

We see how Rajneesh combines an eerie charisma with scientific mind control techniques to make his disciples psychically dependent on him. For the guru, this web of control means a regal lifestyle (he had nearly a hundred Rolls-Royces at his disposal). But for his followers, called sannyasins, living in the shadow of the Master means giving up family ties, working eighteen hours a day, seven days a week, for no pay and always being available to satisfy the sexual whims of the guru’s hierarchy.
