Description (in English): 

Mahasukha -- the Nepalese Buddhist concept of transendence through erotic experience.

Mahasukha Halo -- snapshots, pleas, and confessions from a future world of alien sex and alien gods, where humans do the dirty work and put on the dirty shows. Lost missionaries, sex addicts, hyacinth men, and post-millenium religious fanatics poulate these street scenes where sex and religion are polyvalent, and body parts proliferate. (Source: Eastgate)

Their language all sibilants, they hushed when you passed, their voices indistinguishable from the rain or the sound the masters' ships made, hidden overhead.
