About the Author

Martin J. Verhoeven, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializes in the Euro-American encounter with Asian religions. He is adjunct professor of Comparative Religion at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU), and a professor of Buddhist Classics at Dharma Realm Buddhist University (DRBU). He also teaches a weekly translation and meditation series at the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery.
Rev. Heng Sure, M.A. in oriental languages from University of California, Berkeley, and a Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union, is Director of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery. He teaches at the Institute for World Religions and is an adjunct professor at Bond University, Australia. He is actively involved in interfaith dialogue and in the ongoing conversation between spirituality and technology.
Rev. Heng Sure was ordained as a Buddhist monk in 1976. For the sake of world peace, accompanied by Martin Verhoeven (then Heng Chau), he undertook a two and a half year, six hundred mile pilgrimage up the up the coast of California from Los Angeles to Ukiah in Medocino County, taking three steps and one bow during the entire journey.
Their journey is recorded in Highway Dharma Letters: Two Buddhist Pilgrims Write Letters to Their Teacher (forthcoming October 2014) and the nine volume series Journals & Letters on a Bowing Pilgrimage (2007).
