वायुर् अनिलम् अम्र्तम् अथेदम् | भस्मान्तम् स्हरीरम् ||
vāyur anilam amrtam athedam | bhasmāntam sharīram ||
Now breath becomes wind, the immortal, and this body may end in ashes!
A short abstract yoga film about the wild nature of mind, our habitual patterns, and the neural pathways we journey upon that produce a dream-like mirage of experience. When the mind is out of control we become addicted, obsessed and worked up by all sorts of things. Mudras and mantas help to focus the mind on one thing, rather than be distracted by many. If we don’t chase after thoughts, and fabricate them into stories, we can liberate them so they vanish without a trace. Then we can rest in consciousness, a state of absolute truth, clarity, and pure joy that pervades all. Moksha.
