This is a moving recovery story of a professional family man working through depression and alcoholism towards Buddhism. Taranatha (Robin Hardwick-Smith) is trained as a doctor in New Zealand and London. Recovery from alcoholism loosed long-suppressed spiritual energy which eventually found a home with the FWBO, Western Buddhist Order. His is an "everyman" tale of a family man pursuing a caring profession yet losing care for himself in it all. He movingly tells of his struggle through depression, alcoholism, over-identification with work as a GP, a sense of worthlessness - to find and embrace Buddhism. Honest, sometimes sad, often entertaining, full of personal stories which resonate with many of us, his story rings true - and offers hope.
