How Buddhist meditation kept the Thai boys calm in the cave

The boys’ coach lived in a Buddhist monastery for a decade and taught them to meditate in the cave.

heart warming, good on the coach who held the boys together and taught meditation. it's an astonishing story. I read somewhere else that they took the strongest out first and then the weaker ones. all survived. life changing. :110:

also noticing how the article felt compelled to present a "meta analysis" of meditation.... and a silly cartoon of the coach holding his boys.... it's still far from comfortable for many ppl. never mind, it's in the news, water finds it's level.
