The author is one of these seekers and this book chronicles his coming to terms with an inner understanding of reincarnation that he could faintly remember as a boy and sought to understand more fully as he grew older. It follows him to many of the world’s sacred places—across Europe to the Middle East, from Jerusalem to Istanbul, then overland across Asia to Himalayan monasteries, from Darjeeling to Saranath where the Buddha taught his first sermon, from the cremation vats of Benares on the banks of the Ganges to the mystical plains of South India. It is the inspiring story of a lifetime’s quest for the sacred, ancient wisdom, alluded to by the mystical traditions of the world’s cultures.
