Goodbye to Language

Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Goodbye to Language is a triumphant masterpiece from Jean-Luc Godard. Using 3D technology to mind-bending effect, the film follows a couple whose relationship breaks down along with the images, which in its second half takes a dog's-eye view of the world. It is a meditation on history and illusion that creates 3D effects more spectacular than any Hollywood blockbuster, figures merging and weaving across the screen along with the film's ideas about romantic love and being-in-the-world. It has the feeling of a final statement, but knowing Godard's penchant for re-invention, hopefully it is yet another beginning to an extraordinary career.

Meditation: The Path to Happiness

Loading...
"In this talk, Sri Swami Satchidananda asserts that all problems can be solved through the regular practice of meditation. He contrasts the approach of meditation to that of Western psychology, and shares his insights and wisdom on how meditation can be made continuous thrrough the development of the "witnessing" attitude. Pleasure and pain are two sides of the same coin. If we raise above pleasure and pain profit and loss, praise and blame, we will see everything, but won't get affected by it. That means to become a witness. All the ups and downs are in the mind. If we identify ourselves as mind, then we go through all these troubles. Through a regular meditation practice, we develop the awareness that we are the same always, the true self or the image of god." -- Container
