Shelfari edited the description of The Princess of MEI: Book 2 in the MEI series Wednesday, November 21, 2012.
In the second book of the MEI series, our Bodhisaatva has to apply all his understanding of the nature of the universe, time, compassion, and true nature to a complex genjo-koan of a war torn world, economics, and thugs who would destroy him. In this journey Colin travels to Rome and discusses the parallels between Buddhist and early christian thought and must recover two hidden treasures to enable him to defend the besieged city of MEI and in the process transform himself further along the path. This book discusses several ancient manuscripts including the emerald tablet, the Voynich manuscript, Akkadian tablets, Tycho Brahe, the Epic of Gilgamesh, and ancient Sumerian tablets. It includes over 40 pictures of historical artifacts related to the story.
