Jamail YogisFirst an article in Tricycle, then a book put out this year by Wisdom Publications, Saltwater Buddha has already been touted by some as a “cult classic.” Now its author, surfer-journalist-Buddhist Jamail Yogis, is the subject of upcoming interviews with NPR and PBS.

If you haven’t heard of Jamail, you can get to know him a little better by watching this YouTube video. Or you can visit his blog here.

Tricycle staff first met Jamail when he came by the office for an interview, but alas, we had no spots available then. He seems to be doing just fine, though.
