"Made in Nirvana is a beautiful Book. It is utterly ‘charming' in all various meaning of this word. Magical, Poetic, and deeply Moving. The characters are friends we come to know, feel for, identify with.
India’s verdant beauty - vivid colours, sounds, smells, tastes. Realisation and respect for humanity awoken by those with ‘materially so little’ yet who share appreciation of ‘true treasures within -
The central protagonist, Maria’s search for herself, drives the narrative. We travel by train, bus, rickshaw, boat, plane, taxi, feet! From city to mountains to Jungle. Country to country. Maria’s delightful appetite for fun and her honest desire to make heart to heart connections with everyone she meets, brings a beautiful innocence alive. Maria's story emerges alongside the Rivers. Rivers and water bring Maria to the source of people and LIFE itself.
Our visitor’s vulnerabilities weave truthful tales of fears, drugs, misunderstandings,projections, friendships, betrayal, love and courage. If anyone wants to understand modern Buddhist philosophy and practise through the experiences of real people, living and breathing concepts into reality - this book brings the Heart of Buddhism alive with vivacity through stories of personal revelation and socratic dialogue.
I think Made In Nirvana is a Healing Book. I travelled to exquisite and challenging places. Inside and out. The writing is so vivid - the images imprinted in my memory like sensorial paintings.
Finally, I came to a place of rest. A good place in my self. One of Hope.
Thankyou so much Emanuella Cooper
