The Tao of Holistic Living

Riding the Dark Horse And the Fall of Man

The day is finally here! My book, “Riding the Dark Horse and The Fall of Man” has reached the bookstores. Many of you have heard my talks and have heard me mention this writing and you will find, in greater detail, the explanation of humanity’s decent away from Nature and our intrinsic nature into an abyss of artificiality, egotism, and have lost our way and the meaning of our lives. I encourage you to read this book and take time to ponder the message being delivered.
If you have not heard any of my talks, but have somehow found your way to this page, I invite you to also read this book, as it is no accident that we are now “meeting up!”

Riding The Dark Horse And The Fall Of Man Is Finally Here!!

Lama Nicholas & His Majesty The 4th King of Bhutan - Jigme Singye Wangchuck

Everyone is drawn to those who keep the one,

For there lies rest and happiness and peace.

Passerby may stop for music and good food,

But it is not possible to describe the Tao.

Without Substance or flavour,

It cannot be seen, it cannot be heard,

And yet it cannot be exhausted.

~Lao Tzu

Lama Nicholas Packard
