Summary: "Adventures with the Buddha yields an understanding of Buddhism-not by its metaphysics or rituals but through real characters and true stories as dramatic as those in the most imaginative novel. Through vivid travel writing and gripping human tales, we are exposed not just to the theory of Buddhist philosophy and practice but also to what it looks like from the inside. From enchanting, now-lost kingdoms in Asia to the American workplace, Adventures with the Buddha is a tour de force across nations, generations and ultimately, spirituality." -- Copac
