The first in a series of profiles of chaplaincy students at University of the West is up over at Dharma Cowgirl, home of UWest student and inveterate blogger Monica Sanford (that's me!). Read about Tommy Nguyen, Vietnamese Zen monk, U.S. Army Officer, chaplain candidate, student, and all around great guy in The Monk and The Mercedes. This is the story of one person's encounter with the Dharma and how he came to the path of chaplaincy. It is also a first interesting glimpse into why someone might want to be a Buddhist chaplain. Tommy talks about coming to the United States from Vietnam and what the bodhisattva path means to him. Check it out!
