Nirvana is immediate. Not hidden. Not distant. Not in the future but right in front of your face. Right now.
The Tao of Now helps readers experience the power of enlightenment moment by moment.

The Tao of Now is a wonderful companion for any tired seeker who wants only to know the power and peace of true, immediate enlightenment.
