My Funny novels
Tibetan Buddhist Lama Tsot advises commitment-phobic folksinger and career-obsessed real estate entrepreneur about Buddhism and relationships.
Due to China's invasion of Tibet and Mao's determination to extinguish Tibetan Buddhism from the face of the earth, the Dalai Lama sends High Lamas to establish centers in the West. Lama Tsot, one such Lama comes to Orange County California. His buddy, handsome but commitment-phobic Rolf Nordquist, has made a contract with lovely but career-obsessed, wealthy real estate entrepreneur. Fila Enderby, to father a child to satisfy the demands of her father's will. Lama Tsot's center is in with Rolf's demands. Hilarity results as Lama Tsot, Rolf and Fila wind up in her father's summer home, much to his surprize, and Fila tries to produce a male heir with Rolf before her brother Drew and his latest love, a female jockey and horse trainer from Kentucky.
In the process Lama Tsot gives relationship advice to all four and uses Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to try and ease the pain of Fila's dying father. In the process Tibetan Buddhism comes to conservative Orange County California.
"Are you sure I should continue to take part in Fila's mad scheme to get ownership of her father's company? This whole scene is getting very bizarre even for me."
"Buddhas say this center is important, Rolf. You know situation in Dharmasala. He told Alvin how a tiny place in India was supporting all the children and adults that had escaped from the Chinese invasion of their country.Zot claimed that the Chinese government would not let the Dalai Lama go back to Tibet unless he became a puppet for them, and that it was possible that Tibetan refugees, children, monks, and Lamas would never get to go home.
"Wat Dalai Lama to do? Must locate Tibetan Buddhist Centers in West. Otherwise Tibetan culture, religion, lost forever."
