It's an interesting documentary on this tradition.
I enjoyed the whole process and journey that went into it.

My 'BT NetProtectPlus' gives a Warning that this is a link to an unsafe site. How true this is I don't know.

Well, I used the 1 part upload, megaupload option (direct download).
I haven't had any problems and I'm not the first one that downloaded it so.....

Site does look a bit sketchy- none of my gear said OMG Spywarez!!! but it came up covered in porn ads for me so...
This is a postcard sent from the dining room of the HMS Russel's Teapot. Wish you were here- the band is spot on tonight, and we're having "all the way down" turtle soup!

As long as I got it downloaded and no "presents" attached, I was happy. B)

I like how interactive they are with the world of the spiritual and I think I took something from it too. It seems like the relationships they have with their gods resemble well founded human relationships (I'm looking at my psychology textbook here). Maybe looking directly at factors that produce good human relationships is a good way to develop relationships with gods or spirits.

edit- thank you very much for uploading this video by the way : )

ATR and some (if not most) Eastern traditions follow a more "respectful" approach towards spirits.
I know in Tibetan Buddhism, that is a big part of their system.
As you saw in the video, ATR's as well.
I myself have started incorporating a practice of offerings towards local spirits instead of setting up a ward in our perimeter.
As I wrote before (somewhere), it is such a small, easy practice that can pay off in dividends later on.

P.S: I didn't upload the video - I just shared it from another forum I frequent.
