This is the second book in this trilogy and I enjoyed having the opportunity to be able to read the first book in this series, The Tigress and the Yogi.

While pursuing a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Shelley Schanfield became fascinated with the Buddhist roots of the martial arts. By profession a librarian, she dove into the time, place, and spiritual traditions, including yoga, that 2500 years ago produced Prince Siddhartha, who became the Buddha.
