Summary
Bede Griffiths, an English Benedictine monk, devoted his life to relating the two great religious traditions of Christianity and Hinduism. In developing his theology of a Christian Vedanta--a collaboration of science, mysticism, and faith--he created an interspiritual model for how all religious traditions can benefit from one another's beauty, depth, and richness. In this study of Bede Griffiths's contemplative experience and thought, Wayne Teasdale, a longtime personal friend and student of Griffiths, provides an intriguing view into the beliefs and life of this champion of interreligious acceptance and harmony. Teasdale explains the key terms that form the basis of Griffiths's contemplative understanding, and the essential characteristics of his theology as they relate to the Hindu and Christian traditions, and to spiritual pursuit as a whole
