  为什么要制作这个短片?

  Why did you make this film?

 

  我练习瑜伽。我发现西方的很多地方仅只注意瑜伽的身体部分,体式。体式只是瑜伽的一小部分。很多人没有意识到他们的主要功能是为冥想做准备。我的短片是批评那些只关注体式部分的人。我想提醒他们瑜伽还有很多!

  I practice yoga. I found that many places in the West solely focus on the physicalportion ofyoga,theasanas. The asanas are only a small part of yoga. Many people don't realizethat their primary function is to prepare the body for meditation. My film is acommentary on those who choose to only focus on the physical aspect.  Iwant to remind them that there is a lot more to it!

  为什么你把这个短片起名叫“Yogin”?

  Why did you call the film “Yogin”?

 

  Yogin是另外一个瑜伽人的称呼,瑜伽的从业者。我喜欢Yogin因为这在英语中更像复数。它也像Shogun(幕府时代的将军)和Romin(浪人),相比Yogi更能联想到战士的层面。

  Yogin is another term for yogi, a practitioner of yoga. I liked Yogin becauseit sounds plural in the English language and it also sounds like Shogun andRonin, associating more of a warrior aspect to the yogi.

  那个雕像是什么,它有象征意义么?

  What is that statue and does it have anysignificance?

 

  当然了!短片中的一切都有它的含义。它是印度神的雕像,湿婆,毁灭之神。这种独特的形式,舞王像,湿婆在为人们的无知起舞。一个始祖,宗师,舞者,湿婆众多神像中的一部分。

  Of course!  Everything in the filmhas significance.  That is a statue of the Hindu god, Shiva the destroyer.  In this particularform, Nataraja, Shiva is dancing upon the ignorance of man.The master, Guruji, is the “actor”playing the part of the will of Shiva.

  片中有其他的象征么?

  What other symbols are there?

 

  寺庙有八个角,代表了帕坦加里的瑜伽八个分支:制戒,内制,体式,呼吸控制,意识控制,集中,冥想,三摩地。

  The temple has eight sides, representing Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga: Yama,Niyama, Asana,Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana,and Samadhi.

 

  地板的样式是Sri Yantra图形。它的意思是意识当中的图形冥想,眼睛引导人的启蒙。

  The pattern on the floor is a Sri Yantra.  It is said that meditation onthat pattern in theminds eye can carry one toenlightenment.

  山脉和庙宇是紫色的——第七轮,最高轮穴,天顶轮的颜色。这是与无上自我的结合,万就是一,一就是万。表示Guruji几乎总是湿婆的雕像,或在他背后的巨大紫色的山峰。

  The mountains and temple are purple – the color of the 7th and highest Chakra,Sahasrara.It is the union with the higher self,all is one and one is all.  Note that Guruji almost always has the statue of Shiva, or a bigpurple mountain behind him.

  战争的情景似乎开始向难度体式推进。它像是你可以创造更多的范围,从简易的瑜伽体式进入到更多难度的体式。

  The battle scene seems to start off withdifficult poses.  It seems like you could have created more range, starting offwith simpler yoga poses moving to the more difficult ones.

640_wx_fmt=jpeg&tp=webp&wxfrom=5&wx_lazy=1.webp (22).jpg

  这个剧本其实就是一个大的宇宙之舞。一个傲慢自大的瑜伽者挑战 Guruji。Guruji接受了挑战,但很快把战役变换成为舞蹈。战争快结束时,挑战者在做他无法完成的。这场瑜伽之战愚蠢而且荒唐!

  The drama on Earth is one big cosmicdance.  The egotistical Yogin challenges Guruji to a battle.  Gurujiaccepts the challenge but then quickly morphs the battle into a dance. Towards the end of the battle scene the characters are playing more then theyare competing.  A yoga-battle is silly and absurd!

 

  它不是瑜伽真正的精神。一个真正的瑜伽士从不会竞争。

  It doesn’t really seem to be in thespirit of yoga.  A true yogi would never compete.

 

  难怪!这就是这部短片的中心。ego喜欢竞争。当我们去靠近ego的意愿,那会是不愉快和常常痛苦的结果。

  No kidding!  That is the wholepoint of the film.  The ego loves a competition.  When we are attached to the will of the ego, therecan be an unpleasant and often painful outcome.

  我不理解,为什么他会自己燃烧了呢?

  I don’t get it,why did Yogin spontaneously combust?

 

  当Guruji感到从难以置信的力量,他把这个较量提高了一个层次,经普拉娜雅玛达到漂浮。普拉娜雅玛常常视为控制呼吸;然而这只是它的部分真义。普拉娜是生命力量的控制。我这样理解: 我们可以拿一具尸体,喂他食物,给他水喝,更换损坏的器官和组织,电疗他或做其他任何的事情给这个没有生命的身体--他也再不会复生。这其中还有其他的要素。这个要素就是智慧能量或生命力量,也叫普拉娜或气。

  When Guruji feels like Yogin has stepped aside from his incredibly powerfulego, he moves their interaction to the next level,levitation via pranayama. Pranayama is often viewed as breath control; however that is only partiallytrue.  Pranayama is the control of life-force.  I look at it this way:  We can take a corpse,stuff it with food, give it water, replace the damaged organs and tissues, electrocute it or doany other number of things to a lifeless body - it is not going to come back to life. There has to be some other element.  That element is an intelligent engery or life force, alsoknown as prana or chi.

  这个瑜伽人的不幸(或是幸运如果你从大的意境把它视为重生)是他的自我如此强大以至于它抑制了他生命力量的流动。当他用火的呼吸集中他的普拉娜时,自我陷入了这种能量直到他再也无法自如控制它,他自己燃烧了。

  Unfortunately for Yogin (or fortunately if you look at the larger picture ofreincarnation), his ego is so strong that it inhibits theflow of his life-force.  As he concentrates his prana with the “breath of fire” the ego traps theenergy until Yogin’s body cannot physically hold it any longer and he spontaneouslycombusts.

  我们都知道这能量不能被创造或毁灭,只会转换。因此当我们死时这种能量会怎样?Yogi刚才上了里程碑式的一课,至少表面上烧掉了他的自我。当他的生命能量回到另一个体内时,他的自我对行为的影响力将要少很多。

  We all know that energy cannot becreated or destroyed, only transformed.  So what happens to that energy when we die?  Yogin hasjust been taught a monumental lesson.  He literally burned away is ego.  When his life-forcereturns to another body, his ego will have a considerable less amount of control over his actions.
