Miss U less, See U more...

..is the name of a video clip by a band called Faithless, that I just watched on MTV.
I`ve never seen it before and though usually I`m not into that kind of music, the clip really blew my mind.
It has three Zen monks sitting in a Dojo. They are facing a Buddha statue and one is beating on a wooden sculpture to the rhythm of the song.
While they meditate the statue starts to `live`- it slowly opens an eye or an hand and there are symbols and Japanese words that appear on the statue`s skin.
All the while the statue is bathed in light and that light radiates through the Dojo. Outside you get a glimpse of cedar trees and a gate.
It`s really a beauty to look at ! I wonder how the director got inspired...?
The whole thing reminded me so much of a visit to the Zeedijk Temple in Amsterdam. And yes, the statues there tend to move and communicate as well.
Spectacular.

Anybody ever had a similar experience while looking at a ( Buddha ) statue ?
( I`m afraid I`ve got a little preference here - seems only Asian / Buddhist art and images click in that intense way while tripping...)

many times in the 70's my meditation buddies and me did talk about getting clues and corrections to our meditation work upon glancing at a buddha rupa statue.
one of us went to thailand for a few years joined the order to go further with his practice and when he returned, he indicated that for a while the same (10 ft tall stone statue) buddha rupa in the monastery often had a different expression communicating to him.
i would expect no less from the cosmos
