Page-Turning Biography "Rama Gaze in My Direction" Debuts on Amazon.com

"Rama Gaze in My Direction," a new book from Epiphany Press, describes real-life magic, miracles and perseverance in the life of Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz (1950- 1998) as he embarks on a lifelong teaching career prophesized to help millions of people. Author Liz Lewinson spent 15 years interviewing over 100 people and assembling materials for this biography, based on Dr. Lenz's request three months prior to his death -- that she be his biographer.

Page-Turning Biography
Sausalito, CA, December 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Epiphany Press of Sausalito announced today that "Rama Gaze in My Direction," a page-turning biography of Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz (1950 – 1998), is now available on Amazon. When visiting Nepal at age 19, Rama was told he was destined to help millions of people. Over the years, Rama taught tens of thousands of people to meditate. While he effortlessly displayed miracles, which he termed "Buddhist magic," his teachings were radical, grounded and practical. All of this and more is described in the biography of his early teaching years.

Reviewers have described the book as "clear and compelling" -- Margaret Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science and many other books. "Born Frederick P. Lenz, this elusive young man leaps off the pages of Liz Lewinson's book." -- Judith Simmer-Brown, Professor of Religious Studies, Naropa University. "'Rama: Gaze in My Direction' is unique: part travelogue, part spiritual reader, and part biography, it's a celebration of Rama's life and perspectives as much as it is an account of how American Buddhism spread across the nation" – Diane Donovan, Midwest Review of Books.

"I spent 15 years writing this biography," author Liz Lewinson states. "In January of 1998, Rama came up to me at a small student gathering and said, 'You will be my biographer.' At the time, I thought he was referring to something I might do in the distant future. Three months later, he was gone. Over the next decade, I interviewed many people. I did not know Rama's life before I started, so the journey of discovery has been as transformative for me as it is for the readers of the biography."

Lewinson observes that the biography appeals to a wide range of audiences. "The book contains powerful teachings on feminism, career success and the need for a balanced life with fun, humor and adventure. Everyone is looking for some deeper understanding in their life, and this biography offers that wisdom. The bio reflects a 24/7 holiday spirit."
