Surfing the Himalayas
by Frederick Lenz
Charged with energy, humor, and insight, this is the engaging 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 man plows into a Buddhist monk named Master Fwap who takes him on as a spiritual apprentice.
Using snowboarding as a path to enlightenment, the charming and learned Master Fwap shows how, by freeing the mind and challenging the soul, one can master any mountain—and master oneself.
"Nothing can die, and nothing can be reborn. Things only change their outer appearance. When you see within things and people, you discover that their essence is changeless, perfect light. We are all nirvana: that which is our essential form is the essential formlessness of perfect existence."
