Under attack from Chinese Communists and forced to flee his homeland, a Tibetan monk is given a daunting task. He needs to find a lost book and bring a way of life back from the brink. Armed with only courage and an ancient artifact from his monastery, the sacred Singing Bowl, the young monk embarks on a spiritual odyssey, filled with harrowing dangers and strange mysteries.
As the universe provides clues to his final destination at every turn, he soon discovers that nothing is a coincidence. On an incredible trek that takes him around the globe, the intrepid book-hunter meets the love of his life in Kathmandu, forges unique and dear friends in Egypt, encounters a wise student of Mahatma Gandhi, experiences the wonders of Machu Picchu, and discovers precious Native American secrets. This journey of a lifetime teaches him—and all of us—that the true meaning of any quest is wrapped within the experience itself.
In his effort to reunite a broken circle to keep his centuries-old civilization alive, through both tragedy and triumph, he realizes the greatest truth of all: the interconnectedness of all things and people, both seen and unseen.
