About the Book
When the greatest Western king, Alexander the Great, died, he told his officials to place his hands outside the coffin to show that even a man dies empty-handed. In the East, the great Emperor Shi Huangdi of the Qin Dynasty searched for immortality but still died quietly. The father of banking, Cosimo Medici, made enormous donations in hopes of receiving salvation after death. Was his wish granted? What were these great men looking for?
Scientists are still attempting to unlock the mysteries of the universe and to uncover the origins of mankind. But as they discover more answers, more questions arise. In Coming Home, a Spiritual and Religious Dialogue, Star Chang engages readers in a spiritual dialogue on how to find their own ultimate truth, leading to the opportunity of growth on both an individual and societal level. Chang examines various religious teachings, spiritual practices, and historical narratives that can help us uncover ourselves and our nature, allowing us to live in a way that helps us to unlock our own success, peace and joy.
The great teachers of Jesus, Plato, Muhammad, Buddha, Laozi, and Krishna taught us ultimate wisdom, but may argue that after 2,500 years we have deviated from their teachings. Coming Home walks you through many the great religious teachings and helps you intuitively navigate your own path by discovering what teachings apply to you and how they can be applied in our modern society.
