When over 2,700 wildfires spread across Northern California in June 2008, thousands of firefighters from around the country rushed to join in the fight to put them down. None of these men and women was as strange or as brave as the five senior monks who turned their backs on safety to rescue their beloved Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. Using Buddhist wisdom rather than flame-battling skills, they placed their faith in a spiritual path that others could not understand. Five Monks takes you inside the lives, minds, and meditations of men whose inner life got them through what for others would have been a harrowing experience.
