"His life suggested that one could be spiritually grounded and thriving in more than one tradition at the same time." -Marcus Braybrooke, for the Interfaith Observer
This pioneering work harmonizes Hindu Vedanta philosophy with the Christian vision of the Word made flesh through the Spirit of God's love.An introduction to the Vedic scriptures and Christian mysticism that reveals how God lavished his riches on both Christians and non-Christians alike and the importance of our unity as a people if we are to become whole. "Without Christianity I don't think the oriental religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, can answer the needs of the modern world. But without the enrichment of the mystical tradition of Asia I doubt whether the Western Churches can really discover the fullness of Christ which we are seeking." (Bede Griffiths)
Bede Griffiths was a Benedictine monk who achieved worldwide recognition for his pioneering efforts to bridge the great traditions of Christian and Hindu faith. He advocated a global spiritual friendship, rather than a global religion, cultivating respect for each other's spiritual practices. He died in 1993 at the age of 84. He was a pioneer in the Hindu-Christian interfaith dialogue. He was a lifelong friend of C.S Lewis.
