Hoping to rediscover his deeper purpose, Rijumati, an English Buddhist teacher and businessman, embarked on a journey into the unknown: a round-the-world trip by land and sea that became a kind of pilgrimage. Months - and many crises - later he returned with new reverence for ordinary people and places, a sense of veneration for nature’s wonders and a profound gratitude for being human. Part travel diary and part record of a spiritual journey, these pages evoke the sacred, remote places encountered in the outer world alongside the ‘inner terrain’ that unfolded along the way. If you have ever felt the call of the open road, longed to travel as a form of self-discovery, or just wanted to know how to stay sane whilst getting a visa stamp in Kazakhstan, then Pilgrimage to Anywhere is for you.
About the Author:
Rijumati Wallis currently lives in Barcelona where he is working to establish a new Buddhist centre in the city. Over the last 24 years he has studied, practised and taught Buddhism and meditation.
This is a wonderfully enjoyable book to read. It is a glimpse into the soul of a remarkable person as well as a metaphor for the spiritual journey of self-discovery we all share.
