When I was first walking around trying to sell my first book, not really having much in the way of a clue how to do that, there were a few people who were helpful that advised me.
One of these people was a man who was in charge, at that time, of the Bodhi Tree Bookstore. The Bodhi Tree Bookstore was and still is at the moment, I feel, one of the best bookstores on the planet. It’s one of those places where you can just go and sit and read and get clear about what it is you want to take home with you. They don’t push at you. They don’t come over and bother you, they just let you feel the love in the place.
Right now Bodhi Tree may or may not be around indefinitely. If you live in Los Angeles this is a good time to get yourself over to the Bodhi Tree and soak up as much of that ambiance as you can and while you’re at it buy a few books, take a couple of photos maybe from the outside and remember the good times you had there or the good time perhaps you’re having there now if it’s your first time and know that the wisdom that’s passed through there is not only what’s in print but also what was offered in word and deed by those who worked there.
Thank you my friends at Bodhi Tree Bookstore. Goodlife to you wherever you may go and whatever you may do.
