Light at the Edge of the World: Science of the MindThere’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.

Parts of this documentary feature H.H.Trulshik Rinpoche and Matthieu Ricard.
