Thanks for posting this Astus, I am reading with great interest. Does Ven. Thich Than Tu have any Western monastic disciples?
It seems unfortunate that the Viet Namese tradition is not really known outside their community in any major way with the exception of Thich Nhat Hanh. I often wonder if it is because of the language difficulties of many of the Viet Namese Sangha.
Don't sleep on Ven Thich Thien Tam
He left behind some great books
Lot of very strong Vietnamese-American Buddhist communities in the west, so it's probably just a matter of time.
