    Ivan,

    Where did this come from – the larger source. I want to see the end of it.

    I hope you are well. I send warm regards,
    Barbara

    Hi Barbara,

    Here is the information I found on the original YouTube listing for this video clip:

    by Jeremy Holiday through Professor Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell II, opensourcebuddhism.org This excellent work investigates the relationship between Trappist monk Thomas Merton and his Asian adventures, specifically the relevance of his meeting with Chatrul Rinpoche of the Nyingma Tradition. This work also reveals the Buddhist attitude towards those of other faiths who have attained some higher realization.

    I hope that helps.
