10/10/17 – Facebuddha meets the world!

Facebuddha launched officially on October 10th, 2017. I purposely chose Thelonious Monk’s birthday – for reasons that will become apparent when you get to the end of my book!

Life is jazz – help me improvise and create buzz!

“The only instruction is kindness.” Ravi Chandra celebrates the publication of Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks! The animated book trailer is up on Facebook and YouTube – please watch and share! Facebuddha is available on KindleiBooksNook and Kobo with hardcover now available at Amazon and B&N. CAAM members are invited to use discount code SUPERFAN for $5 off a hardcover copy of the book at Ravi’s Facebuddha launch events on October 23rd and 28th, the first with a conversation with F.B. Steele, M.D., former Executive Director of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. On Wednesday, November 8th at 7:30 pm, Ravi will be in conversation with journalist Bernice Yeung at Booksmith’s Bindery. Five years in the making, Facebuddha is a rich Asian American memoir, a state-of-the-art exploration of psychological research about social media, and an engaging introduction to Buddhism. Tamlyn Tomita says Facebuddha is “a very personal, often funny, warmly intelligent, thoughtful and heartfelt journey to transcendence!” Other reviewers call it “inspiring,” “magnificent,” “breathtakingly personal,” and “an invitation to depth and personal growth.” Ravi is depending on word-of-mouth, so please share, and read this great book!
