Christopher Columbus, Magellan, Lewis & Clark – history is replete with examples of intrepid explorers on a quest for discovery. Just as important as the physical journey, though, is the search for deeper spiritual meaning and fulfillment. Oftentimes we place too much emphasis on the former, whereas the latter ultimately proves to be more rewarding and long lasting.
Nowhere is this fact more evident than throughout the pages of Chaloklum: The Village Of No Last Names. In it, author Patrick Ashtre highlights his own personal spiritual journey, as he ventures deep into the Orient. What he discovers ultimately impacts him in a more substantive, eternal way than any commodity, precious metal, or other natural resource. Beyond the physical beauty of the village, Ashtre becomes immersed in the life-altering tenets of Buddhism, developing a profound appreciation for their practical application in everyday life. He also learns invaluable lessons about ridding oneself of any preconceived notions of morality and self-righteousness.
If the true impact of any artistic work is its ability to inspire others to achieve the same, readers of Chaloklum will find themselves similarly compelled to explore the full depths of spiritual realities. Mission accomplished for Ashtre, in helping us all aspire to a higher plane of peace and understanding.
