In this travelogue of the spirit Swati Chopra brings alive the narrow lanes of Dharamsala which echo with footfalls of seekers from all over the world. Interacting with them-old and young, Tibetan and non-Tibetan, guru and novice-she realizes it is possible in Dharamsala to retreat within, to heal one's spirit, to learn skills for the inner life and perhaps even find answers to sticky life-questions-'Does God exist?', 'Why do I suffer?', 'Does my life have a deeper meaning?' Dharamsala emerges as a modern-day caravanserai on the inner journey, one of the few places in the world where one can access transcendental wisdom.
