“When I feel that something I’m writing is going well, everything in my life is good and the things in my life that aren’t good are completely manageable. If it’s not going well, Miss America could be standing there in a swimsuit handing me a nobel price and I wouldn’t be happy about it”
Aaron Sorkin

The Element

Mahavakya

In Matrix Revolutions (the 3rd and last movie in the series) – there is a chant that is played once when Neo steps onto the tarmac for the final battle and then numerous times as the ending credits begin. You can hear it in this clip. Ever wander what it means?

This is based on a Sanskrit chant that belongs to a category of mantra known as mahavakya – great sayings.

asato ma sadgamaya
tamaso ma jyotirgamaya
mrtyorma amrtam gamaya

I wish to go from what is unreal to what is real
I wish to go from darkness to light
I wish to go from what dies to what is eternal
