Monty was in his teens when he met a Zen master for the first time.
The reason he met him was not because he had some interest in Buddhism, but rather because he had the hots for another student who wanted to visit the Zen master.
Well, this was almost fifty years ago and Monty has been trying to uproot his endless blind passions ever since. It was a long time after this first encounter that Monty began his Buddhist practice.
Monty is like the rest of us as far as endless blind passions go. But there's a new blog he's just created to discuss his experiences. He's an unusually good writer. Subscribe to his upcoming Zen-inspired short stories.
