A Christian monk who lived in India for over thirty years, the late Fr. Griffiths shares some remarkable insights about the contemplative life. He builds a bridge linking the Gnostic tradition of early Christianity and the mystical tradition streaming down through the centuries with the ancient philosophies of Vedanta and Buddhism. The results are fascinating and profound.
Fr. Bede Griffiths is one of the great spiritual prophets of the 20th century. He is the author of several books including The Golden String (Templegate 1980), The Cosmic Revelation (Templegate 1983) and Christ in India (Templegate 1984). To learn more about the work of Fr.
