Starting out in a Theravada context and learning from outstandingly inspiring teachers, he then practiced Zen in both the Korean and Vietnamese traditions, and now studies and practices Vajrayana (Kagyu) Buddhism and is a novice priest of Chan Buddhism (Linji Lineage of HsuYun). His highest aspiration and greatest inspiration is the actual pursuit of happiness – that means his own happiness, coupled – inextricably – with that of all others.
