HARD TRAVEL TO SACRED PLACES

Detailed Product Description

1994. 161 pp. "An extraordinary illumination of the dark corners and dangerous roads, an inspiring record of two amazing journeys, one into the real world of the pitstops and pitfalls of the Dharma trail, the other into the soul". Michael Herr.  After the untimely death of their 21-year-old son, novelist/screenwriter Wurlitzer ( Little Buddha ) and his wife, photogapher Lynn Davis, embarked on a spiritual journey through Thailand, Burma (now Myanmar) and Cambodia, seeking solace and enlightenment from Buddhist sacred places.

They found instead a consumer culture in which material desire has displaced the spiritual center with disastrous consequences for the indigenous practice of Buddhism. By the end of their journey, Wurlitzer and Davis have failed to find the illumination and peace they had so desperately sought.

Had he remembered that in Buddhism enlightenment comes only after one has forsaken all desire, he might have been able to transcend the physical and spiritual exhaustion that dominated his journey.  Paperback, new condition.
