A stroke of insight

This is a video made by a brain researcher who had a stroke.  She describes her experiences in vivid and moving detail.  The really amazing thing about this is that the stroke essentially allowed her to reach and observe a state of what she calls “nirvana”, which I think is really similar to many peoples’ experience during meditation. Science meets dhamma!
