Vedanta and Christian Faith
by Bede Griffiths
With Selected Essays from Swami Paramananda and Swami Abhishiktananda

As anyone who values human freedom will agree, one of the greatest obstacles to the growth of wisdom and cooperation in the world today is the unfortunate absence of mutual understanding and tolerance among the world's religious and Spiritual traditions.

The four works treated in this volume, personally selected by Da Avabhasa for this book, are noteworthy and laudable exceptions to this tendency of intolerance. In each case, the writer has made a genuine and heartfelt approach to a tradition other than his own, seeking to understand and communicate to others the import of its most profound truth.

—from the Introduction, Ecumenism and “Radical” Wisdom by Carolyn Lee and Donald Stanford Webley

Price: $12.95

The essays in this book represent the best of the modern East-West religious dialogue. Each of the authors speaks from the profound personal experience, not only of his native Spiritual tradition, but as one who has deeply imbibed the religious life of an entirely different culture.

Bede Griffiths and Swami Abhishiktananda (Pere Henri Le Saux), both European Catholic priests, spent most of their lives in India, while Swami Paramananda, a close disciple of Swami Vivekananda, followed his Master to the West. All three write with the passion of men who have committed their lives to discovering the Truth beyond the creeds of their own faith and who feel impelled to likewise draw others out of religious provincialism and prejudice to glimpse what Bede Griffiths calls “the ultimate mystery of being”.

The Basket of Tolerance Series

How can the Truth be “One” when the sacred traditions of the world cannot agree what the Truth Is and how it can be Realized?

In The Basket of Tolerance, a comprehensive, annotated bibliography of Wisdom-literature selected from the world's sacred traditions, the Divine World-Teacher, Da Avabhasa, Offers a “Guide to Perfect Understanding of the One and Great Tradition of Mankind”, the total, world tradition of practical, Spiritual, and Transcendental Wisdom.

The Basket of Tolerance Series makes available a unique selection of practical and Spiritual literature from The Basket of Tolerance. These classic texts of sacred Teaching and exemplary practice are each presented in light of Da Avabhasa's Wisdom-Teaching on the Great Tradition and His Revelation of the Way of the Heart.
