"After The Ecstasy, The Laundry: How The Heart Grows Wise On The Spiritual Path" by him is a must read according to one friend I know. Seems to be a great meditation and dhamma lay teacher. Although I am not sure why names like Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj is on his website :shrug: If I am not mistaken, I read once that he tried as a Bhikkhu in New York and was on an alms round and if not for the kind Royal Thai Embassy, he would have died of starvation :tongue:
