He narrates his insightful journey from Chicago to India, covered in almost 6 months of time. What a journey it was! Journey composed of meetings with intellectuals, saints and seers, near to death circumstances and above all positive insights drawn from every event he came across.
Finally, Richard found goal of his life in Bhakti Yoga and guru in his holiness Srila Prabhupada of ISKON.
I don't want to steal the suspense by narrating more on this.
For sure, reading this book itself is a great journey. This book is a treasure for a seeker irrespective of his field of work.
Great journey comes to an end to start another!
In one sentence the essence of this book is
"If a person does not have an ideal he's ready to die for, he has nothing really meaningful to live for."
