Bede Griffiths:  Christ in India

Essays Towards a Hindu-Christian Dialogue

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 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.

This book is partly autobiographical, describing how Bede Griffiths put his beliefs into practice, went to India and founded and Indian-type monastery, taking on as far as possible the traditional ways of the ashram, the Hindu religious community.

The author also provides an exposition in detail of his views on the contemplative, ecumenical and non-violent approach to life, which, while Christian, has much to learn from India.
