The Buddha at Culver

 
9781453804179: The Buddha at Culver

This is the sequel to SWORDS AT CULVER, a fantasy novel set at Culver Military Academy in Indiana, about which the "South Bend Tribune" wrote: "King Arthur, Star Wars, Harry Potter and more meet at Culver." In the sequel, once again, Merthyn Jones and Timothy Marks find themselves the targets of a pair of renegade and rogue Native Americans. The Venerable Shi Wu Ling, a Buddhist monk joins Davies, Meek and Irwin to assist the Culver students in fighting off their attackers by introducing them to Tibetan Buddhist meditation techniques. Tim finds that, in his dreams, he can go back to the world of Pau-koo-shuck, the son of Pottawattamie Chief Aubenaube, who had been forced by tribal custom to kill his father because he had slain his mother. A group of Tibetan monks come to Culver to build and then destroy a mandala; their presence triggers a vicious attack on the boys' classmate Jessica, leading to a healing ceremony for her performed by the Lama. Events rise to a crescendo when two cadets are captured by the rogue Indians-this leads to a titanic struggle in the Council Ring between the forces of good and evil.
