Lecture II.4.4 – Archetypes & Mythology
You ask about eternal life. Shall I be alive after death? This is lunar eternity. This is a long time. The eternity is that dimension which the screen of time shuts out. The obscuring power of maya shuts out the dimension and knowledge and everything else of eternity.. — Joseph Campbell
Carl Jung gave us a modern concept of archetypes and mythology but it is Joseph Campbell work that explains and inter-relates the two ideas together. From the heavenly realms, through the Tibetan karmic winds and Lord of Judgment, Joe walks us towards a rebirth and blend of psychology with Asian philosophies.
This lecture was recorded at the Mann Ranch, Ukiah, CA in 1972.
