In Goal in Progress: The Detours and Diversions of a Spiritual Journey, an American Buddhist monk describes his eclectic, non-linear spiritual journey and his ongoing attempts to clarify the goal of his quest.
Beginning with his early search during the late 1970s, followed by a prolonged residence in West Berlin, he goes on to articulate the monastic journey he embarked on at the age of fifty-four. After initially entering into Buddhist monastic life in Bodhgaya, India, and subsequently ordaining as a novice monk in Dharamsala with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, he resides as a monastic in a Tibetan monastery in France, monasteries of the Thai Forest tradition in England, a Benedictine monastery in Michigan, and a Greek Orthodox monastery in Ohio. He finally re-ordains as a Theravada Buddhist monk in Malaysia.  The author comes to see that his goal, though firmly rooted in Buddhist thought, has been enriched by his significant detours into Christianity and Judaism.

What this author said about working with us...

It was a pleasure working with Luminare Press team. I appreciate the availability of each person with whom I worked on a particular part of the project and Kim, the project manager. I always received a response in a timely manner. There is a high level of professionality at Luminare Press and I understand why I have not seen any negative reviews, as is not the case for some other self-publishing companies. Bhikkhu Nyanadhammika
