There is one vibratory field that connects all things. It has been called Akasha, Logos, the primordial OM, the music of the spheres, the Higgs field, dark energy, and a thousand other names throughout history.
Samadhi Part 1 is the first installment in a series of films exploring Samadhi, an ancient Sanskrit word which points toward the mystical or transcendent union that is at the root of all spirituality and self inquiry.
A documentary about a man who impersonates a wise Indian Guru and builds a following in Arizona. At the height of his popularity, the Guru Kumaré must reveal his true identity to his disciples and unveil his greatest teaching of all.
Using a mix of interviews and archival recordings of his presentations, the American spiritual teacher Ram Dass, born Richard Alpert, tells the story of his life, while summarizing his primary teachings.

After Richard Alpert was fired from Harvard in 1963 for conducting psychedelic drug research, he journeyed to India, found a guru and was renamed Ram Dass ("Servant of God"). Soon, Ram Dass became a spiritual inspiration to people across the globe. Interspersing archival footage with intimate glimpses of Ram Dass today, RAM DASS FIERCE GRACE is a poignant meditation on hippiedom and spirituality.
One of the most profoundly moving and inspiring documentary films I have ever seen. Ram Dass talks openly about his experiences with his ageing process and willingly shows his vulnerability to his situation. His ability to put this into words is inspiring and left me feeling more resourced about any suffering in my own life.
The documentary is informative, funny and poignant and should appeal to any with yearning for honesty and understanding of life's dilemmas. The style of the movie doesn't try to be slick or clever or preachy. Ram Dass's spirituality is portrayed through his twinkling eyes as much as through his words.
Gives an interesting short historical leap into the late sixties / early seventies with footage of Timothy Leary and acid culture. The scenes of 400 hippies dancing on the lawns of Ram Dass's father's house is great. Would your father be OK with that?
Do not pass this film by.
