Saltwater Buddha Excerpt in Shambhala Sun


ShambhalaSun.com posted the first excerpt of Saltwater Buddha today. Here's what they wrote: "

With all that talk about “balance” — not to mention films with titles like Zen and Zero, or a kazillion other occurrences of Zen and surfing colliding (whether for dubious reasons or not) — it’s tempting to make tenuous connections between the practice of Zen and the practice of paddling out, standing up, and riding a wave.

There are real connections between the two — but it helps to be a surfer and a Zen-head if you want to know what you’re talking about. Author Jaimal Yogis is both, as his new book Saltwater Buddha: A Surfer’s Quest to Find Zen on the Sea makes plain. (You’ll find a review of the book in our May 2009 issue, on stands now.)
