A Bizarre Tale Of Unbearable Bliss & Bewilderment
de C. E. Rachlin
Sobre o livro
Have you ever looked up at the sky and wondered why are we here? If there is a loving and compassionate God, why would he create a world wrought of suffering, chaos, and negativity? Have you been looking for someone to explain why life sucks, but haven’t found anybody with the wisdom to help? Well, try a 500-year-old, enlightened camel-man. No, seriously. Kind of.
The Dalai Camel is unlike any spiritual master you’ve ever met. Born to a camel, our intrepid hero spent many lifetimes exploring the world, from a peasant village of Medieval France to the wilds of Pre-Columbian Brazil; from a treacherous ocean voyage on a wooden carving of a boat, all the way to a luxury hotel in glamorous modern-day Manhattan.
In a series of wonderfully warped vignettes, the Dalai Camel has adventures and misadventures as he treks across the globe in search of the attainment of Supreme Enlightenment, sharing his incisive wit and wisdom as he navigates pitfalls and pinnacles along the way.
Join Sri Camel on his bizarre and bewildering journey, along with his spiritual leader, The Goat Master; his thirteen disciples; his adopted son Ugavinny; his long-lost brother Nicholas, who accidentally chiseled off the nose of the Great Sphinx; his sister-in-law Ms. Mittens, who parades around in very little besides her mittens; and the Holy One andPeople magazine enthusiast the Dalai Lama himself, in this delightfully madcap and irreverent story of reverence that puts the odd back in odyssey.
