his is the adventurous story of a young American snowboarder who travels to the Himalayas seeking the ultimate high...but surfs into an experience more transcendent than he could have ever imagined...
In an accident of karmic destiny, the young thrill-seeker plows into a Tantric Buddhist monk named Master Fwap who takes him on as a spiritual apprentice. Using snowboarding as a path to enlightenment, the mystical and learned Master Fwap shows how by freeing the mind and challenging the soul, one can master any sport -- and master himself.
Surfing the Himalayas is the national bestseller that caught the surf of New Age adventure novels, took over and dominated the mountain of inspirational fiction.
Like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, a bestseller of two decades ago by Robert Pirsig, the book explores a holistic approach to living, emphasizing the mind/body connection, the power of positive thinking, and the essentials of American Buddhism.
