London Rider 1998 0712674292 / 9780712674294 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A near Fine unmarked copy with usual slight age darkening to page edges and a small indentation to top edge with near Fine dustjacket. The story of one of the century's greatest spiritual thinkers, the Benedictine monk, Bede Griffiths. At Oxford in the 1920's he became a close friend of C.S. Lewis and knew other members of the 'Inklings' group, was tormented, as a young man, by intense spiritual suffering in the search for his true path in life, becoming a monk in England and Scotland. In 1955 he went to India, where he built up a thriving spiritual community at Shantivanam in Tamil Nadu. Regarded by many as a prophet, a sage, a mystic, even a saint, he both loved the Church and was deeply critical of it, and was open to all paths by which people seek God, whether through the universal tradition known as the 'perennial philosophy', the Buddhist teaching of Dzogehen or esoteric practices such as the Tarot. His interests also encompassed New Age movements. **** NOT EX LIB ****
