Than Don (Gatasaro Bhikkhu), a kalyana-mitta, friend of mine here in Las Vegas has just ordained! He has been married, raised kids, all grown-up, done everything that needs to be done, worked in many professions including black jack dealer as one of his most recent ones.
Now he is a monk! I have known him for some time. He has attended Dhamma programs at my center and he was greatly inspired by Ajahn Brahm when Ajahn Brahm came to Las Vegas and led a program at my center.
