In this follow-up to his much loved Stoep Zen, Antony Osler takes a trip down the lesser-known back roads of the Karoo, from Kimberley to Colesberg, finding divinity in the dust and a Buddha in every pothole. We are all of us on our way home and, as Osler’s journey teaches us, as long as our eyes and hearts are open we belong wherever we go. In this way, however far we travel, our true home is always where we are. With gentle wisdom and deep compassion, Osler connects with the people he meets along the way and shares their stories, past and present, as well as his own personal history and insights. The road is sprinkled with his special brand of poetry and interwoven with a fresh telling of the tale of Gotama, the man who would become Buddha. Whether on familiar terrain or new territory, Osler never loses his sense of wonder. And he doesn’t shy away from the conundrums of a country in flux. Instead, he delights in the ordinary and infuses it with grace. Each encounter is a gift and his generosity in sharing these stories will become a treasure on every bookshelf.
