    A multifaceted documentary on sex trafficking in South Asia, this audiobook is set in five South Asian countries: Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan, but it deeply and shockingly represents the entire global sex trade. This multibillion-dollar industry is a form of modern-day slavery, where women are enslaved, raped, tortured, and forced into sex 20 to 30 times a day; end up with incurable diseases, such as HIV; and are finally thrown away once their bodies are no longer sellable.

    This is not a guided meditation audiobook, but, then again, it is; no other audiobook of meditation intends more than this one to take you to the meditative state where you find your inner peace, where you find your true self. This is not a history of Zen, but, then again, it is a little bit of that, too. It recalls, explains, and reads history, stories, poetry, anecdotes, jokes, and so on, and by doing everything it does in here, it wants to offer you nothing but a taste of pure silence, a taste of meditation, a taste of Zen, and a taste of true religion.

    This is an experimental literary piece that plays with the biblical myth about Satan and God, Cain and Abel, consciousness and unconsciousness, obedience and disobedience, and so on, in an eccentric style. You can call it a novel or a theater of the absurd or a poetic narrative or simply a literary piece or whatever you want to, it still remains the same, unintentionally powerful, and playfully raises some vital questions towards the enlightenment of humankind.

    Misery, love, freedom - that is the philosophical order of the book. The last poem, "The Prophet", is the target point, and all else is an educational journey within this very life to reach the final destination: the prophetic wisdom, the ultimate freedom. Our struggles, frustrations, confusion, fears - through all these we search for the ways to be free; we try to love, we try to be loved, conditionally and unconditionally.... All these experiences slowly grow us up over a period of time.
