Wisdom is thrilled to announce the release of Saltwater Buddha. This wonderful book by Jaimal Yogis will be find a welcome home on the bookshelves of surfers, meditators, and anyone who is a fan of a great story, as well as anyone who enjoyed Hardcore Zen, or One City.
Fed up with suburban teenage life, Jaimal Yogis ran off to Hawaii with little more than a copy of Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha and enough cash for a surfboard. His journey is a coming-of-age saga that takes him from communes to monasteries and the icy New York shore. Equal parts spiritual memoir and surfer’s tale, this is a chronicle of finding meditative focus in the barrel of a wave and eternal truth in the great salty blue.
Here is a short documentary about Jaimal and Saltwater Buddha.
