The Telegraph | Swami who surfs

    • On a remote beach in southern Karnataka, Swami Bhakti Gaurava Narasingha does what no ochre-robed sadhu has probably done before as part of his daily prayer rhythm. He surfs.
    • “If you ask a surfer, say from America or Australia, if he thought it was a spiritual experience, he may explain it but he won’t relate it to the Gita... he won’t relate it to the Vishwaroopa. That’s something only someone with an Indian cultural background and spiritual education (can do).”
