Lions Roar : May 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN MAy 2009 90 sAltwAter BuddhA A surfer’s Quest to find Zen on the sea By Jaimal yogis wisdom Publications, 2009; 256 pp., $15.95 (paper) Bored by his cool-kid, suburban life, sixteen-year-old Jaimal yogis left his mom a note: “Please do not worry. I am somewhere in the world and I will call you when I get there.” Saltwater buddha, his memoir of the adventures that followed takes readers first to Ha- waiian communes and then later to French monasteries and to the chilly New york shore. But this isn’t just a tale that travels the com- pass directions; it also goes surprisingly deep. In this, his first book, yogis offers us his Zen insights, which he melds with surf wisdom. Water, however, is at the heart of it all—that substance that sustains all life, that is both perfectly yielding yet strong enough to grind rock. Surfers and Zennies alike will want to catch this wave. wildwood A Journey through trees By Roger deakin Free Press, 2009; 416 pp., $26.95 (cloth) While Saltwater buddha was about water, wildwood is about wood— wood as it exists in nature and in our psyches, culture, and lives. In this, the last book by the late Roger deakin, he takes us with him on a journey through forests on three continents. He unearths the history of the domestic apple in wild apple groves in Kazakhstan; goes on a hunt for bush plums with a band of Aborigines in Australia; and gets lost in the frozen woods of Poland. Plus, deakin introduces us to art- ists who seem to be kin with the Green Man himself, among them david Nash, who creates large-scale, outdoor tree-based installations and Margaret Mellis, who is known for her sun-bleached driftwood sculptures. At once a natural history, an autobiography, and a poetic piece of travel writing, wildwood will leave you seeing ash and oak in a whole new way. “To enter a wood,” deakin wrote, “is to pass into a different world in which we ourselves are transformed.” YAntrA YoGA the tibetan Yoga of movement By Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Snow Lion Publications, 2008; 406 pp., $34.95 (paper) yantra yoga, also known as trulkhor, is a Tibetan Buddhist prac- tice that entails physical movements, breathing exercises, and visualizations. While there are several systems of yantra, what is presented in this new book is the system that the dzogchen and tantra teacher Chögyal Namkhai Norbu began transmitting in the West in the early 1970’s. yantra yoga is composed of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s commentary on what is considered the defini- tive work on yantra, an eighth-century text by Vairocana. Illus- trated with many photos and drawings, yantra yoga also includes a translation of the ancient text. Practitioners of hatha yoga will be interested to discover that many yantra poses look familiar. This makes sense; yantra (though now very much associated with Tibet) traces its earliest roots back to India. ♦ Our latest titles. . .
