While to most of the world L.A. represents all that is superficial, deep at its core L.A. is the World Center of Spiritual Awakening, the cutting edge of as-far-West-as-you-can-go. Pull up a chair or hop in your car and be ready to tour: this book has it all. You'll visit people and places much to your liking, and some you'll wish you never met. You'll learn a little history, some philosophy, and hopefully gain a smattering of enlightenment. Come, let me share with you the treasures and delights of what we all adore: our wild and wonderful city. L.A., full of shakti and love.

"Once the floodgates were opened, L.A. continued to be the principal conduit for the East-to-West transmission." -- from the Foreword by Philip Goldberg
