South of Nirvana

BySue Randall

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
After being involved in a car accident, Andy quits her job and moves to a rural retreat centre. "South of Nirvana" chronicles her day-to-day life as she encounters Buddhist teachings, wacky characters, and the more difficult side of being Andy. She also discovers that there are many not-so-enlightened gurus around, while the true teachers may remain hidden in the background. Lighthearted, irreverent, serious and scholarly, this novel from Africa is an entertaining exposé of retreat-centre life. It highlights the need to balance spiritual ideals and material reality, and will appeal to readers interested in Buddhism, Eastern philosophy, the New Age, or South Africa. Sue Randall (MA research psychology) has lived at a Buddhist retreat centre for 4 years. The text was reviewed by 3 Dharma teachers from different traditions (FWBO, Mahayana, Shambala).
