The Buddhist Science of the Miind documentary is produced for National Geographic in 2006 by Wade Davis.

The Buddhist Science of the Miind synopsis:

This amazing documentary is filmed in Nepal and follows Wade Davis’s journey in Thubten Choling (a retreat community and monastery in the Solu Khumbu district of northeastern Nepal) to meet with Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche (one of the senior-most lamas of Tibetan Buddhism).

Wade Davis (born December 14, 1953) is a Canadian anthropologist, ethnobotanist, author and photographer whose work has focused on worldwide indigenous cultures, especially in North and South America and particularly involving the traditional uses and beliefs associated with psychoactive plants.

Wade Davis came to prominence with his 1985 best-selling book The Serpent and the Rainbow about the zombies of Haiti.

He is an Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. Named by the NGS as one of the Explorers for the Millennium, he has been described as „a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of the life diversity.”

In recent years his work has taken him to East Africa, Peru, Borneo, Nepal, Polynesia, Tibet, Mali, Benin, Togo, New Guinea, Vanuatu, Australia, Colombia, Mongolia and the high Arctic of Nunuvut and Greenland.
