In 1969 Paul Breiter was among the throngs of disaffected youth who traveled to the Exotic East, seeking to escape the cultural and spiritual upheavals at home. He traveled to India, thinking that indulging the senses would be his means of finding God.
Instead, he found himself at a monastery in Thailand, taking the precepts of a Buddhist monk. He would spend the next seven years in robes, not indulging the senses, but depriving them.
One Monk, Many Masters: The Wanderings of a Simple Buddhist Traveler follows Paul’s life as a monk and his ongoing search for enlightenment after leaving the robes.
One Monk, Many Masters is an engaging account of Paul’s spiritual wanderings through the Theravada, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhist traditions under such great teachers as Ajahn Chah, Ajahn Sumedho, Kobun, Lama Gonpo, and the 16th Karmapa.
