Day Breaks Over Dharamsala
A Memoir of Life Lost and FoundeBook - 2014
Day Breaks Over Dharamsala is an intimate, insightful and inspiring journey through the landscape of the mind as well as the landscape of northern India. Along the way, this book is funny, wise, helpless, and triumphant, a testament to spirit, to India, to taxi drivers, and to that which gets us there on time when we have no idea where we are going. The trip begins in Delhi, in 2004, and winds its way through a month-long pilgrimage through Tibetan India as well as through a life-long search for healing and spiritual freedom. "Day Breaks Over Dharamsala is a book of the highest seriousness of purpose, but it is also a delight. It is a book not just for survivors of abuse and for all travelers and spiritual seekers; it is written with such nakedness and such grit and wit and jeweled panache that it is also a book for dog lovers, people passionate about pizza, gourmets of eccentricity, bookworms hungry for arcane information about British churches in the Himalayas, and all battered survivors everywhere of post-modern cynicism, corporate nihilism, consumerist fantasy, and religious fundamentalism, for anyone, in fact, who in Janet Thomas's words, 'wants to know I have been alive before I die.' Day Breaks Over Dharamsala "embodies the transcendent" in the journey it incarnates with such wisdom and is so lithe, dancing, elegant a prose, it helps us start to sing our own songs of redemption and begin living and acting from their radical wisdom." -- From the foreword by Andrew Harvey.
