On Tuesday, March 16, 1999, at 11:51 AM PST – I purchased my first book on Buddhism. It was during my lunch break as a programmer. I was eating at my desk, surfing about Amazon.com and I found this book by Lama Surya Das, on Tibetan Buddhism. He is also a Modern Buddhist Convert. He grew up as Jeffrey Miller, a Jewish boy from New York. His mother now calls him the Deli Lama.
