In Samadhi, Mahayogi Pilot Baba from the Himalayas and Mahamandaleshwar Yog Mata Keiko Aikawa from Japan demonstrate a state of suspended animation akin to virtual death of the senses and stoppage of the bodily functions called Samadhi, which also means death in Hindi. These yogis can be buried, remain under water or in an airtight glass container for extended periods of time. Despite extremely adverse conditions such as the absence of air, water, food and movement and extreme temperature swings, they remain unscathed. Filmed in Dewas, Nainital and Allahabad in India and in Berkeley, California in the US, this film is an intimate look at a ancient, secret practice that is now being revealed. Yearly, Pilot Baba teaches classes at The Mahayog Academy, at his ashram in Nainital for those interested in developing the skills and techniques to attain the state of Samadhi.
