The wandering monk completes 35 years in robes

Postby Mr. G » Tue Nov 23, 2010 2:54 pm

David Du Prez from Southern California developed an interest in Buddhism as a college student when he followed a course on world religions. His interest then was only academic. As a young man he served in the army (it was compulsory) with a stint in Vietnam as well. Returning home he was "experimenting with drugs, then playing the hippie while free-wheeling and dealing around half the globe to Nepal."
