Perhaps some of you will be interested in this video. A journalist stays up in the mountains in a cave near the cave of St. Anthony for 3 weeks. Awesome.

Is this a new TV Show? Extreme Pilgrim?

Cause I once saw this ridiculous thing where the Dali Lama was supposed to show up and say some magical words to some Tibetans before going back to Hollywood.

Anyway, this one dude started traveling like 6 month prior via prostration. I am not kidding. He had a enormous callous on his head the day the Dali Lama was supposed to make his appearance. He traveled hundreds of miles one prostration at a time.

I felt really bad for the guy, cause the Dali Lama couldn't appear to say the 36 words or whatever he does, cause he had a sore throat from skyping with Steven Segal and Richard Gere the night before.

The guy was non-plussed. It seemed and was happy to have had the opportunity to have possibly heard the Dali Lama same something to a Tibetan rather than about them.

He planned on doing the same trip gladly in future, if time allowed the Dali Lama a break from his hectic schedule of talking to University students to lead his people.
