    Definitely inspiring. If someone who has so much wealth and status willing to give up everything, what am I holding onto when really I have nothing.

    Gassho, thank you for sharing.

    I find it a wonderful story.

    Has he says what he plans to do with the billions that he will someday inherit? I would be curious as to whether he has some plans for the money.
