Brent Bittner, an attorney from Canada, travels to South India with his best friend Kavi for his friend's Indian wedding. He quickly learns how to adapt to an amazing culture that he finds interesting yet often challenging. Later, he is invited to visit the Indian court system by one of his new friends, an Indian attorney. He recounts fascinating stories from before and during the wedding and his time spent with his friend and his friend's family.

Following the wedding, Brent takes three weeks to explore the magic of India. While on a train to Cape Comorin, he meets up with a father and son from Bombay. They nickname him "Swami," the Hindu name for a spiritual guru. While on his trip, Brent learns that his father has died. Later, a visit from his father in spirit becomes a wonderful gift from the grave, confirming and enriching Brent's own spirituality.

This warm, funny, and insightful memoir was created for Brent's son, Keenan, as a present to him on his thirteenth birthday, to encourage him and others to take their own spiritual paths, wherever they may lead.
