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, Saltwater Buddha is a chronicle of finding meditative focus in the barrel of a wave and eternal truth in the great salty blue. Joining us to discuss the movie will be Jaimal Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha and All Our Waves Are Water.
