For years I've used Awakening the Buddha Within as my personal code-of-conduct handbook; and I consider Lama Surya Das as my mentor even though I have no idea how he looks like until today when I see his photo on Amazon's Web page. I am curious how a Tibetan lama can survive in materialistic America (even if he is originally an American).

I live in Singapore where the majority of the population are nominal Buddhists, and I believe Buddha's Holy Dhamma is the only worthwhile pursuit; yet I can't imagine living a homeless life as a monk.
