I found this fascinating if far too short. It is one short incident and I would love to get a chance to read the whole story. Hopefully he will expand on this at some point?
That he was an American and could "pass" the exam to stay in this Chinese monastery is quite an accomplishment. Again, I would love to hear more of his experiences.
