Mike Myers, Guru Pitka and Grief...

The Love Guru is actually a product of Myers' grief over his father's death
in 1991 after a battle with Alzheimer's disease.

"The Guru Pitka started as a way of dealing with that loss," Myers says.
"I didn't understand why the universe would take away the one guy I
wanted to see all this amazing success that was happening. ... I just
started reading ? things philosophical, things spiritual."

Myers says that while the film is a comedy, it contains some philosophical
truths ? ideas that helped him cope after his father's death, now framed
as tenets of the Guru Pitka's belief system.
