About this product
- DescriptionThere are many reason why Western men turn to Eastern religionsearching for inner truth, lost love, loneliness, fleeing the law, hopelessness, alcoholism. Some travel halfway around the world in an attempt to overcome their particular dissoluteness, only to realize that improving yourself is like polishing air. What they eventually discover, nevertheless, is one of the Buddha s most significant lessons: enlightenment comes to those whose singular focus is on helping others less fortunate. Six stories, six gay men trudging down the road to enlightenment. What they each find is the last thing in the world they expected.
