Synopsis:

Did you ever want to become a Peace Corps Volunteer? Discover the hardships, the wonder and the laughter of this volunteer's journey of self-discovery while serving in Nepal during the 1970's.

The year 1970 arrived. The Vietnam War was almost over, and the mood of a generation began to shift. Thousands of young people from Western nations made the arduous journey to South Asia in search of a new spirituality, hoping it would bring meaning to their lives. Not only did they want to discover the truth, but to find themselves.

This time, however, it would no longer be about trying to stop a war between two countries, but about stopping the war within the duality of the mind.

Many went to places like India and Nepal, seeking to find an ashram, a guru, or to sit before a Buddhist master who would teach enlightenment. For others, it was just to get away from home for the first time, and to learn how other cultures lived. However, there were also those who still believed in trying to save the world. They were the ones who joined the United States Peace Corps.

Arran Anderson was about to get drafted, so he joined the Peace Corps in Nepal. Little did he know that a whole new reality would await him, as he began to unlock the hidden secrets of Tibetan Buddhism.
