Tibetan monks: Meditation and Science

History Channel — This clip is from a documentary about a Tibetan Buddhist monk who thought to have somehow mummified himself through meditation. It is all speculation, of course, since tumo is barely capable of drying sheets. But the body has been miraculously preserved without any external help. Scientists set out to discover what happened. The documentary shows Buddhist monks preforming meditation under clinical test conditions and discusses the results.
