Motion and Stillness

This video was inspired by the following lines from Eihei Dogen’s Bendowa:

In stillness, mind and object merge in realization and go beyond enlightenment. Nevertheless, in the state of receptive samadhi, without disturbing its quality or moving a single particle you engage the vast buddha activity, the extremely profound and subtle buddha transformation.

I made this video using an iPod Touch and iMovie. The music is Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise, sung by Anna Moffo, and Four Tet, She Moves She.
