    Zen buddhist hermits

    I was looking for a spirituality documentary sub forum.
    But I guess this will have to do.

    I just watched.

    It shows a little peak into a forgotten group of zen hermit's living in the Chinese Zhongnang mountains..
    I enjoyed it very much..
    Have a great day today

    What is it you found appealing about it? Did you learn anything about Zen? I'm asking because am starting to filter all media now, due to watching so much crapola lately.

    For me it's about the recognition that there are people out there living as Buddhist hermits.
    I needed some reassurance that spirituality isn't dead. That there are people out there practicing to reach the highest potential of all instead of highest prestige for themselves.
    Something like that.

    As far as informative. I cannot answer if this will hit a spot for you or should be thrown in the crapola bin.
    My best guess would be that some of the featured monks would say it doesn't matter either way.
    Have a great day today

    For a more in depth look into zen.
    It's practices and origin maybe this video is better suited.
    Still an old and hence not flashy but deeply stilled look at practice.

    The question is whether to contemplate the void, or contemplate 'avoid' with this film. I think I'll watch it! Thanks for getting back to me, Cats.
