In 1962, the United States detonated a nuclear bomb ten miles off the coast of Christmas Island in the South Pacific. From that moment two people, born of the same parents, and with the same childhood experiences, found themselves on different life journeys to find truth, happiness, purpose, and ultimately financial success. Robert became a world-famous entrepreneur, author, and teacher of all things financial, and Emi a highly devout Buddhist nun, author, and teacher of all things spiritual.
This book will inspire you along your own life’s journey to find your own truth and purpose, your own path to prosperity—both financial and spiritual—all the riches of life that were meant for you...and us all.
Barbara Emi Kiyosaki is Robert’s sister. They grew up together in Hawaii with their parents Ralph and Marjorie and two other siblings, Jon and Beth. While Robert took the path of war during the Vietnam era, Emi took the path of peace, exploring alternative and spiritual journeys. Their paths crossed only intermittently after growing up together: Robert left for the United States Merchant Marine Academy, and a year later Emi left for the University of Hawaii. They took what appear to be entirely different paths. Emi raised one daughter, Erika; wanting to deepen her studies and practice in Tibetan Buddhism, Emi became a Buddhist nun when Erika was sixteen. Emi was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1985 and today is known more by her ordination name, Bhikshuni Tenzin Kacho. For six years, Tenzin was the Buddhist Chaplain at the United States Air Force Academy. She has a master’s of art degree in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Language from Naropa University. She is the Assistant Spiritual Director and teacher at Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist Center in Long Beach, California, and visiting teacher at Thubten Shedrup Ling in Colorado Springs. She occasionally resides at Geden Choling Nunnery in northern India.
