So many people say ... “I thought about joining the Peace Corps!” … or they’ll ask, “What was it like to be a Peace Corps Volunteer?" People also tell me ... they know very little about Buddhist beliefs. This is a fictional novel based upon factual events and real people. The Peace Corps wasn't about saving the world ... as so many think ... and Buddhist culture is so much more than just another religion. In this story, a young man joins the United States Peace Corps and goes to Nepal in 1971, rather than to face being drafted to fight the war in Vietnam. Little did he know, he would discover a whole new reality, as he begins to uncover his own 'war within.' In his quest to find inner peace, and the meaning of freedom ... he experiences the mystery and magic of Tibetan Buddhism firsthand. He’s in the country of Nepal for two reasons ... to complete his job as a Peace Corps Volunteer, and to learn what he can about the Buddhist teachings from an old Lama who lives near his village. Soon, his quest becomes … a search for enlightenment. This novel is historical fiction, about world travel, being a volunteer in the United States Peace Corps in the country of Nepal ... and it teaches you everything you would ever want to know about Tibetan Buddhism. Although it’s fiction, it’s a accurate story about the author's two years of service as a Peace Corps Volunteer. It’s funny, dramatic, and informative, but most of all, you'll learn all about the mystical and sacred teachings found in Tibetan Buddhism. This is Book Two in the pentalogy of five novels about the life and times of the author.
