Storyline

Surf Monk chronicles the inner and outer search of a group of monks who make their home in New York City. Students of the late Indian teacher, Sri Chinmoy who lived in Queens for over 40 years, this band of friends discovered the beauty and power of the nearby surfing beaches and incorporated their love for the ocean into their search for enlightenment. Surf Monk explores the ideals which drive their life as well as the pounding winter surf which sustains them. Written by Anonymous

Amazing
10 March 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Blew me away, and I'm not really a surf fan! But the spiritual intensity of something like surf cannot be denied after watching this short film. Very compelling and intense in the feeling of "something" inside us that drives us to the ocean, in a search for identity, for understanding, and for creating a inner connection with everything that surrounds us.

Ocean Monk talks about the modern monks of today's world, who no longer dwell in caves or monasteries living harsh and secluded lives, but rather live in cities like New York, and have regular jobs and homes, whilst mastering the art of self-knowing and self-transendence in activities such as surfing. A piece of art for the enthusiasts of surfing...(and not)
