Dr. Zima: “I felt so close to death.”
By faith and perseverance, Dr. Zima discovered the key to the Tsaatan people’s high performance.
One day, a herdsman, Jochi, took pity on Dr. Zima and invited him over to his tent house. Over tea, Jochi told him about their inherited knowledge for boundless energy. It came in the form of a special handmade pillow given to every child of the tribe at 14.
Jochi told Dr. Zima that this special pillow was blessed by their shaman so that each person would sleep without terrifying nightmares and be revitalized for the new day.
He then sent Dr. Zima off with a special pillow in his hand.
