“In Paradisum” by Thomas Bergersen + Samsara

This is what happens when I can’t sleep because a gorgeous song and mesmerizing video are floating around in my mind. I have been obsessed with Thomas Bergersen’s album Sun, which came out exactly one year before I discovered it. And I have always considered Ron Fricke’s Baraka as one of my all-time favorite films. This video was edited together using “In Paradisum” by Thomas Bergersen and excerpts from Ron Fricke’s film Samsara, which was a follow-up to Baraka. Witness the mesmerizing Tibetan Buddhist tradition of creating and destroying mandalas made from colored sand.
