BOOK: “The Fifth Rule of Ten” by Gay Hendricks

The next in the Tenzin Norbu series is out! Gay Hendricks has created a character of complexity – a former Buddhist monk turned police officer turned private investigator. These stories combine action and mystery with conscious living and loving principles based in Buddhist practice. Engaging, thought-provoking and highly recommended. Read the whole series. You start caring about Ten and the people in his life and wonder how they are doing.

Just for fun:

Some birdsong for you.
