201759 mins

An ancient Sanskrit word, Samadhi alludes to the mystical or transcendent union that is at the root of all true spirituality and self inquiry. The saints, sages and awakened beings throughout history have all learned the wisdom of complete surrender of the limited individual self, to that which is beyond name and form...Samadhi.

Samadhi: Maya the Illusion of the Self, is the first installment in the Samadhi film series, and addresses the question of why the ancient wisdom teachings are relevant to humanity now more than ever.

The Samadhi series follows Canadian film maker Daniel Schmidt’s critically acclaimed film Inner Worlds Outer Worlds, available on Gaia.
