从雨束的博客上看到这个小短片,开始时笑得不可遏制,结尾却让我讶异。接下来便是好奇,这个制作人,片尾署名John Hanrahan 的这个人,怎么创作出来这么鬼斧神工的作品(词不达意,太惊讶了)?于是上google搜他,发现了这篇访谈。译出来,与大家共享。再次谢谢雨束。

Why did you make this film?

你为什么要制作这个短片?
I practice yoga. I found that many places in the West solely focus on the physical portion of

yoga,the asanas.  The asanas are only a small part of yoga. Many people don't realize that

their primary function is to prepare the body for meditation.  My film is a commentary on

those who choose to only focus on the physical aspect.  I want to remind them that there is

 a lot more to it!
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!


Why did you call the film “Yogin”?

为什么你把这个短片起名叫“Yogin”?
Yogin is another term for yogi, a practitioner of yoga.  I liked Yogin because it sounds

 plural in the English language and it also sounds like Shogun and Ronin, associating more

 of a warrior aspect to the yogi.

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。

 

How long did it take you?

你制作花费了多长时间?
From the very first time I said, “Hey, it would be cool to have two yoga masters face-off,”

 until I had a finished piece was about 2 years.  That doesn’t mean I spent 2 years on it. 

I was in an MFA program at the time, so I had other classes, and I did little work over the

breaks.  If I had worked on it full time, it would have been 8-10 months.

在最开始的时候我说,“嘿,让两个瑜伽高手对峙会很酷,”直到我有了完成的片段大约是两年的时间。

这不是说我花了两年的时间在制作上。我那时正在完成美术硕士的项目,因此我有其他的课程,我花很少

的时间在这个短片的进展上。如果我全力的制作,它大约花费8-10个月。

 

What programs did you use?


I animated in Autodesk Maya, and then composited in Adobe After Effects.  I like the fact that

 Maya is the Sanskrit word for “illusion” and can be interpreted as a phenomenal dream of

duality.  Eastern philosophies view Earth as a cosmic dream in which we are all actors in a

play.  It seems fitting that my film has been created within Maya.

 

What is that statue and does it have any significance?
那个雕像是什么,它有象征意义么?

Of course!  Everything in the film has significance.  That is a statue of the Hindu god, Shiva

the destroyer.  In this particular form, Nataraja, Shiva is dancing upon the ignorance of man. 

The master, Guruji, is the “actor” playing the part of the will of Shiva.

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。

What other symbols are there?

片中有其他的象征么?
The temple has eight sides, representing Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga: Yama, Niyama, Asana,

 Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi.

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 pattern on the floor is a Sri Yantra.  It is said that meditation on that pattern in the

minds eye can carry one to enlightenment.

地板的样式是Sri Yantra图形[1]。它的意思是意识当中的图形冥想,眼睛引导人的启蒙。
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 big purple mountain behind him.

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 battle scene seems to start off with difficult poses.  It seems like you could

have created more range, starting off with simpler yoga poses moving to the more

difficult ones.

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 drama on Earth is one big cosmic dance.  The egotistical Yogin challenges Guruji to a battle.  Guruji accepts the challenge but then quickly morphs the battle into a dance.  Towards the end of the battle scene the characters

are playing more then they are competing.  A yoga-battle is silly and absurd!    

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!

 

It doesn’t really seem to be in the spirit of yoga.  A true yogi would never compete.
它不是瑜伽真正的精神。一个真正的瑜伽士从不会竞争。

No kidding!  That is the whole point of the film.  The ego loves a competition.  When we are

attached to the will of the ego, there can be an unpleasant and often painful outcome. 

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。

 

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

我不理解,为什么他会自己燃烧了呢?
When Guruji feels like Yogin has stepped aside from his incredibly powerful ego, he moves their

 interaction to the next level, levitation via pranayama. Pranayama is often viewed as breath

control; however that is only partially true.  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 do any 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, also known as prana or chi. 

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。 
Unfortunately for Yogin (or fortunately if you look at the larger picture of reincarnation), his

 ego is so strong that it inhibits the flow of his life-force.  As he concentrates his prana with

the “breath of fire” the ego traps the energy until Yogin’s body cannot physically hold it

any longer and he spontaneously combusts. 

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。

We all know that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed.  So what happens to

that energy when we die?  Yogin has just been taught a monumental lesson.  He literally burned

away is ego.  When his life-force returns to another body, his ego will have a considerable less

 amount of control over his actions.

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?Yogin只被灌输了不朽的

课程,他毫不夸张的毁掉了他的自我。当他的生命能量回到另一个体内,他的自我将会有重要的内容:他的行

动控制力。(?最后一句不知怎么翻译了。是这样的么?)

 

[1](司里陽崔(印度冥想圖)Sri Yantra印度的古老瑜珈認為「司里陽崔」是所有知名的有力

幾何記號中,最具力量的一個,體驗「司里陽崔」的關鍵是,將其當作「星門」來通往「本源的

零點」,也就是在那裡,所有最終極的展現都將到來。
