Dinner with Buddha: A Novel by Roland Merullo

If  life is a journey--with detours, paths from which to choose, and myriad roadblocks to overcome--then Otto Ringling is most certainly on the journey of a lifetime. His first fifty or so years were pretty good. He felt he had it all, until one day he didn’t.

Seeking understanding, he calls on Volya Rinpoche, a wise man and spiritual leader. A man who accepts the world as it comes to him, a man without pride or vanity. But Rinpoche, as it turns out, is experiencing his own time of doubt. In hopes of finding answers to life’s mysteries, the two embark on a journey through America, an amusing and enlightening road trip that becomes a lesson in love and gratitude.

At the time when I read “Breakfast with Buddha” I thought it could have been so much more both REALLY funny and enlightening, and I feel the same with “Dinner”. Because of the tragic events prior to book two, Otto still seems a bit forlorn which cast a shadow on the book. Also some of the classic Rinpoche talks from the previous books don’t seem as insightful here. Don’t get me wrong I don’t think it was a bad book, it’s well written and overall very insightful and always thought provoking, but I feel like it left me wanting more. A funnier Rinpoche, a happier Otto and a bit more on the adventure they seem to be leaving on at the end of the book.
