Fueled by the music of revolution, anger, fear, and despair, we
dyed our hair or shaved our heads ... Eating acid like it was candy
and chasing speed with cheap vodka, smoking truckloads of weed, all
in a vain attempt to get numb and stay numb.
This is the story of a young man and a generation of angry
youths who rebelled against their parents and the unfulfilled
promise of the sixties. As with many self-destructive kids, Noah
Levine's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs,
drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the search didn't end there.
Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, Noah
looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he
saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger at so much
injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the
practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and
While Levine comes to embrace the same spiritual tradition as
his father, bestselling author Stephen Levine, he finds his most
authentic expression in connecting the seemingly opposed worlds of
punk and Buddhism. As Noah Levine delved deeper into Buddhism, he
chose not to reject the punk scene, instead integrating the two
worlds as a catalyst for transformation. Ultimately, this is an
inspiring story about maturing, and how a hostile and lost
generation is finally finding its footing. This provocative report
takes us deep inside the punk scene and moves from anger,
rebellion, and self-destruction, to health, service to others, and
genuine spiritual growth.
