Summary
Book editor Otto Ringling visits his sister and her husband, Mongolian Monk Volya Rinpoche, at their meditation center in North Dakota. There, hes urged by his sister to go on a road trip with her husband because her 8-year-old daughter, Shelsa, has had a vision of the journey. Otto, whos recently lost his wife to illness and his children to adulthood, is ready to spend some time with the beatific monk, so readily agrees. Their quiet, reflective journey changes as they make their way through the Midwest and witness the lives of many Native Americans, and as the meditation center is supposedly menaced by men who would like to deny the spiritual potential of little Shelsa.
Critique
Merullo's book continues from his earlier book Breakfast with Buddha, now finding Otto learning more about Buddhism and meditation and realizing that his life is going to change in profound ways. It's a fascinating trip.
