Take part in a fascinating spiritual journey around the world with renowned artist, sculptor, and author Frederick Franck as he visits Sri Lanka, India, the Himilayas, and Japan. Along the way he relates events of the journey to memories of his life, tying past and present together with a series of flashbacks that add depth and richness to the narrative. Sit in on intimate, probing conversations with the twentieth-century giants of faith he met along the way: Pope John XXIII, the Dalai Lama, Albert Schweitzer, D.T. Suzuki, and many others. Using his personal journey to the East to highlight the encounter between Christianity and the religions of the East, he explores the deep spiritual resonances between Buddhism and Christianity. The culmination of wisdom from a lifelong pilgrimage by the author of the classic book, The Zen of Seeing, this is an exciting journey with a guide who is wise, insightful, joyous, and full of hope. Franck's descriptions of his travels and his experiences along the way shine with the vividness only an artist could capture. If you are one of those restless spiritual pilgrims who feels the need to go beyond all formal religion and any single tradition, you would be wise to observe where Franck points in this gem of a book. Includes over 50 charming drawings which Franck sketched along the way.
