''This is a donut. It is very sweet, and very good. But if you've never tasted a donut, you wouldn't really know how sweet and how good a donut is. . . ,'' explains David Lynch in his documentary film Meditation, Creativity, Peace, which just had its New York premiere.
''Transcendental Meditation is like that. Transcendental Meditation gives an experience much sweeter than the sweetness of this donut. It gives the experience of the sweetest nectar of life, pure bliss consciousness.''
Produced by the David Lynch Foundation, Meditation, Creativity, Peace is a fascinating documentary that follows filmmaker David Lynch on a 16-country tour of Europe and the Middle East to spread the word about the individual and global impact of Transcendental Meditation.
The 71-minute film premiered in New York City last weekend at the Museum of the Moving Image, with an introduction by Bob Roth, David Lynch Foundation executive director. Another screening was held yesterday in New York at the Sunshine Landmark Cinema, followed by a 'Q & A' with musician Donovan, who appears in the film.
''With equal parts wit and passion, 'Meditation, Creativity, Peace' shows the director's commitment to Transcendental Meditation as way of changing the world, starting from within,'' the Museum's description of the event states. ''The film also offers rare insight into Lynch's creative process, through interviews and revealing moments from the tour.''
