Surfing the Himalayas

Charged with energy, humor and insight, Surfing the Himalayas is the fast-paced story of a young American snowboarder who travels to the Himalayas seeking the ultimate high.

Buddhism

“Buddhism is the study of light and the study of life.”

Rama has journeyed into different states of mind and beyond states of mind to Nirvana. He has experienced the light, merged with it and become it. Rama instructs others on how to do this. In this never-before released talk, Rama patiently and thoroughly walks us through the basics of Buddhism and Buddhist practice. Download this talk (Free MP3 Audio)
