7 CHAPTERS- INTRO, (5)ELEMENTAL DISSOLUTION (STUPA; KUNDALINI; ASCENSION), VOID
RUNNING TIME: 40:37 MIN
The Jade Gourd is a multi-media montage that depicts the process of spiritual evolution towards the realization of ultimate reality, through symbolic imagery familiar to alchemical traditions originating in remote antiquity (eg.Sumerian, Kaballah, Vedic, Taoist, Tantric, and Mayan). The Jade Gourd unveils the inherent alchemical design of the anthropocosm, or human conduit between heaven and earth, and the divine conspiracy to conceal it in order that humanity remains blind in slavery. Only through disciplined spiritual practice can humanity learn the martial skills required to exorcise the demon guardians obstructing the original perspective of reality, contained within the jade gourd.
The chapters of the Jade Gourd reflect elemental dissolution (earth to ether) within a practicing alchemist, typical to Tantric or Taoist Medicine. Each chapter is characterized by pertaining elemental phenomena (eg.color, anatomical location of energy centers, sounds, animals, etc.). Each progressive elemental disintegration is symbolized by a gate. The recurring bus symbolizes the spiritual journey from earth to heaven.
