In this fascinating episode from the National Geographic series Light at the Edge of the World, anthropologist Wade Davis heads to Nepal and Mount Everest in his quest to understand the sacred teachings, and 'science of mind', of Tibetan Buddhism:
I only wish this series was available on DVD in Australia -- it's available to order from Amazon, the Smithsonian, etc, but different region codes means I can't play it on my mac. I heartily recommend Wade Davis's book of the same title -- no photos though, so it's worth watching the doco and searching for photos online while reading it to enhance the experience.
Wade Davis deserves a Nobel.
