The Young & The Restless actor sits down with Prestige to discuss his upcoming documentary A Man Called GOD.
Sylvia: Hello Mr. Kris, how are you today?
Kristoff St.John: It is well today. I’m in sunny California, where it’s 80 degrees and it’s a beautiful day as each day is.
Sylvia: Very good! First of all I want to say congratulations on your new documentary. Can you give us a brief synopsis about this new and controversial documentary.
Kristoff St.John: It’s a feature documentary that my family and I shot about thirty-four years ago. We went to the South of India to live in a holy man ashram. An ashram is merely a residence for someone who considers themselves holy, and the truth is, this particular man, whose name is Sathya Sai Baba, has fifty million followers globally and my family and I were just three people who were part of this organization. We went to India to shoot this documentary because we were already disciples and devotees of this man, and it didn’t take me long to figure out that this particular organization, and the man itself, the man that fifty million people call God, was shrouded with corruption, deception, a complete lack of spirituality, a very ungodly existence, for a man called God.
Sylvia: As you just stated you were fourteen years old at the time of the filming of this, and this introduction to this man, Sai Baba, was initiated by your step-mom, your father as well, and that’s what caused you troubles there. So before then were you actually familiar with the teachings and the beliefs of Sai Baba?
Kristoff St.John: Before we left for India, we had been indoctrinated roughly six years before we travelled there. My step-mother Maria and my father Christopher were coming out of the 60s and the 70s, as many people were from that hippie generation, looking for some sort of spiritual leader or teachings, that weren’t necessarily organized religions that the churches had to offer, and so East Indian or Hindu philosophy, the Buddhist philosophy, were very attractive to many people, and my parents were no different. So they gravitated towards the Eastern philosophy. And it’s interesting to me that the East has what the West has to offer, which is technology, and the West is searching hopelessly and helplessly, for what much of the East has, which is spirituality, supposedly. I found out that you don’t have to travel 12 to 50 thousand miles away from your home to find God, that God actually resides in your spirit inside of you. It was an interesting journey, that six years where we studied the teachings of the man, his philosophy, and ultimately finally, after Maria had taken a couple of trips there, we went there together as a family. My father had been asked by Sai Baba to make a documentary about him through Maria, and so he was asked to write a screenplay about Sai Baba’s young child life. So my dad did both of those things.
