Light at the Edge of the World: Science of the Mind
There’s something about the inherent tolerance of Buddhism that is inherently attractive. It's totally non-judgmental.
There's no notion of sin, there's no notion of good and evil, there's only ignorance and suffering. And this is the most important thing, it places all emphasis on compassion; you do not embrace negativity.
Buddhism asks the fundamental question: What is life and what is the point of existence?
Wade Davis goes on an anthropological and spiritual journey into the Himalayas of Nepal to learn the deepest lesson of Buddhist practice.
