Yogis of Tibet

The Yogis of Tibet is a documentary motion picture that purports to record dying traditions of asceticism among Tibetan Buddhists. The film has proved to be immensely popular, and much of that popularity apparently extends from footage of arcane practices such as in the screen capture above -- a yogi leaps cross-legged into the air. If this sort of thing appeals to you, then you can click the link and check out the clips for yourself.

What I find particularly amusing is the gentleman in the capture, above, saying words to the effect of, "This is a very secret practice...," and then performing for the camera.
Fastest selling video in our history!
