Zen Surfer and the Holy Grail
An age-old battle between Monism and Dualism. An
underground church determined to achieve mass control. A
sacred and powerful tool of transformation, unleashed from
the birthplace of the original Buddha.
When Australian surf instructor and healer, Ramón Joyce, is charged with the unlikely goal of uniting humanity, a Nepalese holy man entrusts him with ‘The Brahman Bible’. This ancient text has the power to fulfil Einstein’s quest for a ‘Unified Theory’, the Holy Grail of modern physics.
Aided by his eccentric librarian uncle, Jean-Claude Liberte, a legion of Vedic scholars, an exotic yoga teacher named Magenta, and the wisdom of the infamous Bohm-Krishnamurti dialogues, Ramón must outsmart and out-spirit a cunning enemy.
Dr Randolph Gruber, leader of the Church of Descartes, determines to capture the mystical knowledge of the Monists and harness it for his own ghastly mission—spreading Conflict, Oppression, Religious extremism, Paranoia, Spectatorship and Egoism, via the evil doctrine of C.O.R.P.S.E.
Intrigue and romance. Espionage and abduction. As one group seeks to outmanoeuvre the other, a perilous plan is conceived to neutralise Gruber and his church. But will the mystery of quantum entrainment be unlocked too late?
Global control or universal harmony? Evil domination or spiritual mastery? The salvation and evolution of humankind hang in the balance.
Life has two crucial points. It is incredibly precious
and incredibly fragile. When we actually realise these two
facts and take them to heart, then the purpose of life is
clear. Each one of us has the possibility to experience
the truth of who we really are and what it is to be a
human being. In Zen Surfer and the Holy Grail,
Ross Dadds explores the notion of enlightenment, this
capacity to know absolute truth, in a way that is
personal, engaging and provocative. Provocative in that it
makes us think about what is important in our own lives
and what we are doing with our own time. Highly
recommended to read and contemplate.
