Swami Prabhavananda begins Blessed Are the Pure in Heart by stating, "In this Beatitude, Christ gives the central truth of all religions."

In substance, the two talks are related in that they both derive from biblical quotes, yet their themes are developed from a Vedantic point of view.

Blessed Are the Pure in Heart
Swami Prabhavananda had great reverence for the Sermon on the Mount and chose this particular Beatitude as his subject for this special film. In 1975, sound films required professional equipment. This talk was not a live lecture. Rather it was staged to be professionally filmed. It is the best quality sound movie of Swami Prabhavananda known to us.

On the other hand, Be Still and Know That I Am God (Psalm 46:10) is the film of a Sunday lecture. It is a more in-depth treatment of the theme, a "how-to" delivered to a live audience. Interestingly, the concept of purity, a central theme in Blessed Are the Pure in Heart, is also addressed in Be Still, but the perspective is different.
