A remarkable monastery in Thailand cares for wild animals which are being squeezed off their land by too much development.
A video shows tigers walking next to monks and allowing visitors to pet them, even wrestle with their cubs. A beautiful story of compassion.
The animal senses that the only thing in the minds of the monks is peace. Now, the monastery is raising money for a tiger island sanctuary. Tourism is a natural outgrowth of the peaceful coexistance the monks have established here. Reincarnation is part of the reason behind the compassion.
