In this segment Bhante Vimalaramsi talks about how he discovered the method of Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation. He took the Majjhima Nikaya, the earliest Buddhist teachings and words of the Buddha, to Thailand and spent 3 months in a cave with a cobra as a roommate, trying for himself the meditation just as it was written in the suttas, adding the missing step he found. Hint - the word is 'Tranquilize'.
He went into the suttas to find what was missing. He found it.
