Creating a life of heaven not hell
Jaimal Yogis, The Saltwater Buddha found himself in trouble, ran away to Hawaii to follow his lifelong dream of surfing, lived in a Buddhist monastery, then wanted to be a writer. Jaimal discovered more about himself and the world he lives in. His memoir, the best seller, The Saltwater Buddha has now been adapted into a film. Jaimal helps us find peace in an out of control distracted and overly busy world, taking lessons from Zen to show us how to better handle the chaos surrounding us.Jaimal is a bohemian, author, buddhist, monk, surfer, a runaway… how does he see his identity today? What has Jaimal learnt about his identity? Jaimal shares the story of the samurai and the zen master and the difference between heaven and hell. How does Jaimal stay the path without drifting away with ego? Where do we find or build freedom of the mind and how can that be genuinely created? What is the most profound thing Jaimal has learnt about freedom? The story of the second arrow, and where has Jaimal employed the second arrow? Jaimal’s Dad was a military guy who did yoga. How did his Dad meld that dichotomy? Jaimal's Dad came home one day and said I’m leaving. How well can Jaimal remember that day? How has Jaimal changed the language in his own mind when feeling fear? “Very sad, no problem” Where did that story originate and why does that statement mean so much to Jaimal? The poet Rumi “We are not a drop in the ocean. We are the ocean in a drop.” Why that resonates with Jaimal?

What a Ride!” ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
