The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

Brother, sister merge business with Buddhism

One day in spring 2007, the phone rang in the little Buddhist center in Long Beach that has been the focus of the Venerable Tenzin Kacho’s life since she was ordained a nun by the Dalai Lama.

On the other end of the line was her brother, Robert Kiyosaki, a combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam who crashed three times and went on to become a globe-trotting entrepreneur and author of a best-selling book on personal finance, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.”

He was calling from his publisher’s office in New York. There were some pleasantries, then Kiyosaki cut to the chase: “I’ve got a great idea for you. We’re going to write a book together.”

The book, he said, would be an inspirational blend of Eastern religion and business acumen told through their own experiences and conclusions about what is ultimately meaningful in life.
