“Samsara“, in Tibet called khor ba, meaning “continuos flow” and represent the repeating cycle of birth, life and death within many religions. It also represents a meaningful leading direction for human’s actions in the present and consequences in the present.
This is a documentary without words but contains unlimited meanings and informations.
Human beings The power of Nature individuals massive productions
Born Death Reborn killing Salvation Faith…
From High-rise buildings to nothingness
From man made robot to Pilgrims
” Pilgrims are persons in motion passing through territories not their own- seeking something we might call completion, or perhaps the world clarity will do as well. a goal to which only the spirit’s compass points the way.”
— Richard H. Niebuhr
The spirit of the word “pilgrim” always catches my heart and makes me wonder, aren’t we all pilgrims in life?
The most impressive part of the film is where Lama gather together painting Sand Mandala. At the beginning part of the documentary we see them creating a masterpiece of painting with coloured sand. It is so delicate to paint so that it will make you stop breathing.
At the end of the film, just a second of blink, they ritualistically destroyed the paint with hand and put all sand into a bowl.
It brings tears into my heart.
Those colourful paints, those time involved talent and patience, those beauty.
Everything is temporary.
It is interesting how that day was created in my life. Right before I watch the film with a great friend, we walked along the cemetery beside her house in this early April day.
We talked about death, with our respect, to connect with the unknown.
I still remember there is one line written on one of the grave
“We will meet again”. –We both loved it.
Whoever said the journey of life is the only one, who said we have to have everything, which only exist in our own mind.
Days like today just makes me so happy to be alive. People create things and they are proud of it, or try to own it. at the end, only the energy reminds, Life is like painting Sand Mandala, what’s important is the heart of making and living.
