The Temple Of Master Hotei is a fascinating story based entirely upon the past life memories of the author. Most people are familiar with the book’s main character, Master Hotei, but as the Laughing Buddha. The story begins with the young boy, Ivory One, entering the mysterious Temple of Master Hotei at the age of seven where he then spends the rest of his life living with, and learning from the great Master Hotei.
Each chapter is a unique and wonderful spiritual lesson about one specific subject. Master Hotei’s marvelous humor, high heart, profound love, meticulously planned stunts, dramatic pantomimes, and endless wisdom invisibly directs the young boy through a series of unfolding learning’s that build year by year, and chapter by chapter. As the young boy grows into a young man, his awareness and abilities mature and expand as well. The entire time Master Hotei is cleverly leading him through numerous spiritual discoveries to the unexpected and dramatic exit point within his student’s life.
When the young man, now called Jade One, had outgrown the Temple and gardens as a place of learning within that incarnation, he decides he is ready to consciously, intentionally, and permanently leave that life. And so, with no break in consciousness, Jade One steps out of that life and moves to a state after the death of his physical body where the story continues briefly, until he decided where he wishes to incarnate next.
