Renowned author, philosopher, and mythologist Joseph Campbell presents this program, an exploration of primal mythical images. Campbell traces the mythological symbols left to us by the ancients, revealing the drama played out across the screen of the universe. Primal mythological images evoke a sense of the experience as well as the spirit of the great story that so excited Joe. Filmed around the world, SUKHAVATI is a journey of transcendence and illumination. By casting his sharp critical eye on the images and practices of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity as well as the ruins of Ajanta or Ellora in India, Eleusis and Delphi in Greece, and Stonehenge, Campbell sets off on a journey filled with visual poetry to find the land of bliss.
