This book recounts the epic journey of a man searching for meaning and love in his life. John Yogacara Asanga, a biracial half-Indian/half-white male living in rural Indiana, faces many challenges. His father, who is a storm chaser and serves in the United States Air Force, taught him not to run from storms when he was young. While chasing a double hurricane off the coast of Africa, John lost his father at the age of 18. Due to this, he leaves Indiana and goes to the nearest big city.

The South Side of Chicago gang accepts him and he becomes a member. As a member of a gang, it is not easy to survive in the inner city. Eventually, he ends up in jail because of the gang's criminal activities. Not only in the United States but also in India, he agreed to testify and was given witness protection.
Asanga devotes himself to yoga and meditation in India in order to begin his real spiritual journey. He discusses the five kleshas: avidya, Asmita, Dvesha, Raga, and Abhinivesha. As a result, he finds true happiness and the love of his life, Aanya. In this book, John takes us on an unforgettable journey from Indiana, his hometown, to Chicago, his early childhood days, heartbreaks, struggles, drugs, and crimes, and his time spent in prison in America to an ashram in India where he finds his lady love, and what all destiny has in store for him.

With the beautiful and impressive storyline with feisty characters, the language is easy to follow as well. The book explores spirituality. It explains yoga and the mysteries of love and life. This book has a great moral to it and strengthens one's faith in humanity and good people. Three-dimensional characters, awesome quotes, meaningful conversations, a little bit of magic, and mysticism made this a wonderful read.
