'On Meditation – Peter Matthiessen': The Purpose of Our Life Is to Help Others Through It

Wow, this portrait brought tears to my eyes! Nowness presents filmmaker Rebecca Dreyfus' portrait of the late novelist and long time Zen student Peter Matthiessen, author of the critically acclaimed "The Snow Leopard" (1978).

I have yet to read "The Snow Leopard", but if I'm not mistaken, mindfulness expert Dr. Jon Kabat–Zinn included some excerpts from it and included them in his wonderful book "Wherever You Go, There You Are", a book that I highly recommend to all that are interested in meditation.

The interview is part of Dreyfus' on-going series "On Meditation".
