Product Details


The Last Laugh is just what I like in a story—funny, mystical, original, deep. If you like adventures of the heart and spirit, you’ll really enjoy Arjuna Ardagh’s story of an awakening journey like none other.”
— Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Conscious Loving and The First Rule of Ten: A Tenzing Norbu Mystery

“This moving story of one man’s journey from profound darkness to the light powerfully illumi-nates the central struggle of modern times to find a new way forward. The Last Laugh is chock full of wit and wisdom but also that rarest of qualities in modern fiction: hope.”
— Lynne McTaggart, international best-selling author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond

“This is a great book. Arjuna is a wordsmith of the highest order, and this is brilliantly written. I laughed out loud many times, and loved the way the deep insights are also entertaining. Highly recommended.”
— John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

“A rich and feisty tale, beautifully told, of people who live out of the box while they make the world a better place. This is spirited spiritual literature of a new order and is highly recommended.”
— Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of Jump Time and A Passion for the Possible

“Arjuna awakens us to the joy and humor of life ever-evolving! His brilliant wit, perception of reality, and love make The Last Laugh a real journey into the divine.”
— Barbara Marx Hubbard, president of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution

The Last Laugh is a delightful adventure in consciousness, and will uplift the soul, and lead to transformation in the most marvelous way.”
— Sonia Choquette, New York Times best-selling author of The Answer Is Simple . . . Love Yourself, Live Your Spirit!

The Last Laugh is simply a tour de force. I want everyone to read it. With compelling power, grace and wit, it presents the great teaching that your small contracted self is not the true or full you, it is simply a case of mistaken identity. The book has clarity, love, and the power of a direct transmission of an awakened state. And it is wildly funny. I laughed out loud many, many times, I found ancient perennial wisdom presented in fresh and original ways, and I fell in love with the characters. This is a book I never wanted to end. Essential reading—truly one of the great ‘visionary’ novels.”
— Marc Gafni, Ph.D., author of Your Unique Self: The Radical Path to Personal Enlightenment and founder of the Center for World Spirituality

“This has to be one of my top ten reads of all time. What can I say? Everything important about being human is in this book . . . and it is funny, too! Everyone should have a copy.”
— Marci Shimoff, author of Happy for No Reason and Love for No Reason

The Last Laugh is funny, it offers deep insight, and it is so well written that you will not want to put it down till you are done. I highly recommend everyone buy this book and pass it on to your friends. I promise you will not regret it.”
— Hale Dwoskin, author of the New York Times bestseller The Sedona Method

“Arjuna’s novel The Last Laugh points us back to the things that are really important in life, in a style that is heartfelt; well written; and very, very funny!”
— Janet Bray Attwood, New York Times best-selling author of The Passion Test

“This is an amazing and funny book that will bring enlightenment and laughter into your life.”
— Yakov Smirnoff, Russian comedian, actor, and author of Smirnoff for the Soul

The Last Laugh is an outstanding novel! It presents all of the wisdom of the ages in a story that you can’t stop reading. If you want to become wise without having to study over it, read this book. I am buying a bunch of these novels to give to my friends.”
— Brad Blanton, author of Radical Honesty

“This new book by my good friend Arjuna Ardagh is a Zen Koan come alive. He manages to capture the paradox, the ecstatic highs and the great falls from grace, and the humor of the authentic spiritual Path of us Human Beings. The Last Laugh takes us on a journey that is authentic, compelling, and very funny. I highly recommend it!”
— Genpo Merzel Roshi, American Zen Master, creator of The Big Mind

The Last Laugh is, simply put, a wonderful book! Arjuna Ardagh’s writing puts you squarely in the middle of every scene, and he weaves a story with such skill that you want to keep turning pages. This novel speaks clearly about who the author is: bright, funny, articulate, and compel-ling. You will feel brighter and better for having read this wonderful book.”
— Mary Morrissey, founder of Life SOULutions

“While many, many books have been written about the concept of enlightenment, The Last Laugh is a well-written, totally engaging, wise, and modern story of what the transformational process looks like, sounds like, tastes like, and feels like. Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a book like this is worth a hundred preachy tutorials.”
— Steve Bhaerman, a.k.a. Swami Beyondananda, co-author of Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There from Here

“At last . . . a spiritual novel with guts and depth.”
— Peter Russell, author of From Science to God and The Global Brain
