Summary
"We, like Otto, find our cynicism worn away by RinpocheÔÇṣ gentle instruction in the simple but terribly difficult art of letting go, living each moment to the fullest, seeing the sacred in the everyday... This brave, meditative author has carved a unique niche in American literature.ÔÇ_ÔÇijKirkus Reviews starred review ?Æ If life is a journeyÔÇijwith detours, paths from which to choose, and myriad roadblocks to overcomeÔÇijthen Otto Ringling is most certainly on the journey of a lifetime. The first fifty or so years of his journey were pretty good. He felt that he had it all, until one day he didnÔÇṭ. Looking for answers, he calls on his brother-in-law, 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. Someone who, as it turns out, is experiencing his own time of doubt. So, in hopes of finding answers to lifeÔÇṣ mysteries, the two embark on a journey through America, a road trip that becomes a lesson in love and gratitude. ?Æ ÔÇ£Merullo offers keen insight into and intelligent assessments of modern American life, but it is his compassionate portrait of a grieving Otto in search of inner tranquility that is most affecting.ÔÇ_ÔÇijBooklist ?Æ ÔÇ£Otto is such a full human, which is why we can empathize with his questions and immerse ourselves in his experiences. In the end, we are all humanized by the spiritual journey of Dinner with Buddha.ÔÇ_ÔÇijSpirituality and Practice ?Æ ÔÇ£Merullo masterfully depicts the struggles of practicing mindfulness moment by moment... [The] novel is full of nuanced, thoughtful prose and is an immensely satisfying conclusion to the series." ÔÇijPublishers Weekly
