Reincarnation Through Common Sense is a book of stripes and plaid in the most entertaining sense of Einstein’s words. Westerners have written many books about living in Asian temples. None are like this true story. The rural Buddhist Monks and Nuns of a forest temple in Asia adopt a very troubled soul from Brooklyn, New York. He can’t speak the language. No one there speaks English. He is penniless, has no intention of studying spiritual discipline, and is amusingly psychotic. He writes to future readers in order to tame his comic insanity. This is not a book by a theology student! The author is nonetheless given access to the ancient roots and spiritual wings of the Wisdom Teachers who have rescued him. He redefines life and reports the details in a manner so intimate and natural that you’ll think you are having coffee on a bar stool in the temple with him. You may laugh your butt off on the way to Nirvana! (You may also say "Ouch!" a few times.) Magic is redefined as objective reality and common sense. Spirit is presented as a functional friend, without the fairy dust. Moods run from adventurous psychosis through enlightened bliss as writing styles run through ancient prose to the most erudite modern internal rhyme (hip hop/rap). The main character’s life runs through death and into reincarnation without ever leaving his body—and he describes this process to us in living color. This down to earth treatment gives a clear view in simple terms of truths that we more often find fossilized within concretized symbols beneath rusting metaphor. For an experience unique in comedic drama, spirituality, adventure, and sheer creativity, start reading Reincarnation Through Common Sense from the beginning.

Fearless Puppy on American Road

This amazing (mostly) true story reads like a fantasy. Fearless Puppy is a transfictional self help book. It is both comedic and dramatic—a butt kicking, page-turning wild ride of an adventure story that makes deep spiritual impressions. Within this book you will meet several saintly Tibetan Lamas. You will also meet a man who is his own uncle, specialists in smoke, mirrors, and invisibility, spirited sex, oxygen orgasms, heavenly Hell’s Angels, phony preachers, domestic violence/domestic solutions, racist killers in America, Canadian race wars, Native American wise men, some Christian ethics and Jewish ritual, angelic witches, benevolent heroin addicts, magical birds, an all-lesbian band playing a rock concert for the deaf, the musician raised by multi-ethnic golden hearted prostitutes, martial artists battling neo-Nazis, the modern day Robin Hood, and many other strangely wonderful people. Buckle your seat belt tightly, take a deep breath, and enjoy the ride. Fearless Puppy runs on rocket fuel! *Please forward this through your contact and friend lists, and to anyone you think might be interested. Help us raise funds to sponsor Wisdom Professionals. Your help is important! Thank you. ________________________ Doug “Ten” Rose (Celtic Buddhist Lama Tenzin Roisin Dubh) may be the biggest smart ass as well as one of the wisest and most entertaining survivors of the hitchhiking adventurers that used to cover America’s highways. He is the author of Fearless Puppy on American Road and Reincarnation Through Common Sense, has survived heroin addiction and death, and is a graduate

of over a hundred thousand miles of travel without ever driving a car, or owning a phone or bank account. Ten Rose and his work are a vibrant part of the present and future as well as an essential remnant of a vanishing breed. He has attended 8 different colleges and universities but insists he has learned more in other peoples' cars.
