About the Book

Somebody’s Listening is the awe-inspiring true story of a seeker’s mystical journey of awakening and fulfillment. This enlightening journey traces a long arc from a revealing California childhood in the fifties through the sixties and on to adulthood, when a decades-long spiritual journey begins under the tutelage of a Chinese Taoist-Buddhist priest in the summer of 1980. A truly auspicious and mystical event happens that summer, the first of many illuminating experiences during the long apprenticeship. Written with grace and expansion, this book brings the reader along a journey of inconceivable wonder, filled with spiritual insights, practical guidelines, and revelatory realizations that are both current and ancient. Somebody’s Listening is spiritual nourishment, intended to inspire the cultivation of spiritual values in daily life through Taoist and Buddhist principles and practice and to bring awareness of something greater than ourselves in the hopes all might find peace.

About the Author

Visionary and clairvoyant, possessing in Buddhist terms the “wisdom eyes” which sees the dharmata, “true suchness” or the true nature of things, Larry has been practicing meditation for 39 years and achieved union with the wisdom mind of his Taoist-Buddhist teacher in 1995. He was most fortunate to have received the transmission of compassion and insight from His Holiness the 16th Karmapa during the Ceremony of the Vajra Crown, and has sponsored and attended teachings on the Four Noble Truths given by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. He teaches dharma and meditation in private consultation.
