Blog Your Blessings Sunday
Today there is a Solar Eclipse at 28 Degrees Pisces highlighting a time of inspiration and healing. My focus this Blog Your Blessings Sunday (hosted by Blue Panther) is two movies I have seen recently which inspired me.
The first inspirational film is "Amazing Grace". If you would like to read my review of it, go to another one of blogs: The Art of Living and Dying.
The second inspirational film is "Samsara", a film by Pan Nalin. This is what the back cover of the DVD says,"A spiritual love story set in the majestic landscape of Ladakh, in the Himalayas, one man must struggle to find spiritual enlightenment. Tashi, a brillilant young monk, has just completed three years of solitary meditation in a remote hermitage. Brought out of a deep trance, he is taken back to his ancient monastery where he slowly recovers his strength. But Tashi's return has unexpected results. Despite a life devoted to the rigors of spiritual development, he finds himself experiencing a surprising profound sexual awakening. For the first time, Tashi begins to question the spiritual values of his monastic existence."
This film is absolutely exquisite--everything from the cinematography, to the compelling and attractive actors, to the love scenes, to the spiritual message, to the final dramatic ending. Like the other great film "Amazing Grace", "Samsara" reveals the many different stages of spiritual awakening and mastery which also include despair, the dark night of the soul, confusion, tests, temptation, shock, redemption, and surrender.
