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.

display_description "The first fifty or so years of Otto's journey were pretty good. He felt he had it all until one day he didn't. Looking for answers, he calls on his enlightened brother-in-law, Volya Rinpoche, a wise man with Russian roots, a Tibetan heritage, and an international reputation as a spiritual teacher ... Otto needs his brother-in-law's wisdom, ... and ... it turns out that Rinpoche himself is also looking for guidance. They embark on a road trip over highways and back roads across the middle of America, hoping to sort out what's troubling them. They encounter a diverse cast of characters along the way as they look for answers to life's mysteries"--Amazon.com.
