Bede Griffiths, who died in 1994, was an English Benedictine monk who settled in India in 1955 and went on to become one of the great mystical teachers of our time. In India, where he assumed the dress and ascetic discipline of a Hindu holy man, Griffiths established a Christian community following the customs of a Hindu ashram. Through his immersion in the scriptures of India, he found wisdom and inspiration for his own Christian faith. This volume, which draws on his autobiographical volumes and his many other books, presents the ideal entry to the cosmic and mystical spirituality of a great spiritual guide.

This is an intimate first-person account of the life & beliefs of Dom Bede Griffiths, one of the great mystical thinkers of the 20th century & a pioneer in East-West understanding. Born into the English middle class in 1905, educated at Oxford, Bede spent several years as a literature scholar. He developed a close relationship with C.S. Lewis, one of his professors, with whom he shared a spiritual search. After leaving university life, Bede was drawn to the Catholic Church & eventually became a Benedictine monk. After 20 years he left England for India & founded a community that celebrated the common values of Hindu & Christian ways of life. Seekers from around the world traveled to the lush jungles of southern India to experience the unique community Griffiths founded. Although he never left his Catholic faith, Bede developed a spiritual & scientific understanding that transcended all dogma. These pages contain the simple voice of a profound thinker, teacher, & guru, who - despite some opposition from those who would label him a "heretic" - continues to reach out to people all over the world. A Human Search chronicles a lifelong quest for truth. Here are honest, impassioned reflections on God, nature, ritual, the divine feminine, the evolution of Scripture, & the deeper meaning of life.

From the barren land of the Australian wilderness to the tropical landscape of South India, Meath Conlan traces his spiritual journey under the guidance of the late spiritual master Bede Griffiths. He shares with us a fascinating and intimate portrait of this humble and holy man, who was not only a mentor but friend and confidante. Father Bedes conversations and wisdom come to life through Conlans recollections and vivid pictures which chronicle their years of friendship. The twenty-eight full color photos from the authors private collection include public celebrations, interfaith meetings with world religious leaders, as well as private moments of contemplation and worship. What a unique and sacred school of learning . . . Since, as Bede Griffiths insists, Gods call to contemplation is universal, everyone should find practical and profound guidance in these pages. (From the Foreword by Sister Pascaline Coff, OSB)

Every age has its visionaries. Bede Griffiths, the gentle Benedictine monk who traveled to India to seek the other half of his soul was one such spiritual giant. Like Mother Teresa and Thich Nhat Hanh, Father Bede's spirituality transcends sectarian labels. His Shantivanam ("Forest of Peace") monastery in India is Christian in faith but Hindu in lifestyle. The essays and stories in the moving tribute to Father Bede by such luminaries as Thomas Berry dissolve the boundaries between Christian belief and Eastern practice. Foreword by the Dalai Lama.

If modern civilization has lost sight of the goal that all ancient cultures held steadily before their eyes--a religious goal--how is man to recover the sense of the absolute and the unconditioned to which he can commit himself? The author believes the answer to this can come only through a meeting of East and West. A new structure must be found, and it must necessarily be universal, since we now irrevocably belong to one world. Only with a meeting of the old religions can a new adequate religious approach be found.
