Summary

This discussion with a remarkable Benedictine monk who founded an ashram in South India is a beautiful, stirring exploration of human spirituality.

In a rare synthesis of Christian, Hindu, and modern scientific thought, the late Father Bede discusses the infusing of gross matter and daily life with spirit, the finding of God "in the divine darkness beyond word and thought", technology and simple living, Black Madonnas, mysticism, and monastic life.

Deep and enlightening

A most enjoyable talk with father Bede Griffiths, where he talks about his broad experience with both Western and Eastern spirituality. A broad sense of intense humanistic respect shines through his words, taking the listener to a world of considerations that will take eventually to that "resurrection" he talks about. Highly recommended.
