Summary

An interview with Father Bede and two musician friends becomes a profoundly moving musical excursion through the deep truths and feelings of the various spiritual traditions represented in their South Indian Christian-Hindu ashram.

Through the musical gifts of Russill and Asha Paul, we hear and sense for ourselves how the many different names and descriptions of God are reflections of a single reality. "There is a wonderful underlying unity", says Father Bede, "but it's beyond words. We're all trying to move beyond the words and the languages to the one reality itself, beyond all." The music takes us to a direct experience of the sacred unity beyond cultural differences.

it's the same message in the East and the West.

this book was very interesting to me, as I have always wondered about combining Eastern and Western ideas of sacred music. Hearing that Christian mantra at the end put me over the top.
