Katz (religious studies, Florida International U., Miami) traces his circuitous spiritual path from a "lukewarm, traditional Jewish background" growing up in the 1950s and 1960s East coast, to immersion in Eastern traditions in India and elsewhere that led him to Orthodox Judaism. He participated in inter-faith dialog with the Dalai Lama. The engaging memoir includes a who's who of gurus and fellow seekers (including Rodger Kamenetz, author of The Jew and the Lotus); a glossary of terms in Hebrew, Sanskrit, and other languages; photos; and a map.
