Synopsis


Considered by many to be one of the great religious figures of the twentieth century, Bede Griffiths will gain even more recognition with Shirley du Boulays definitive biography. Bede Griffiths was well known during his lifetime for his efforts to harmonise the spiritual practices of East and West, but the full range of his influence is only just becoming widely appreciated. In this standard biography of his life, published in paperback in time for the 10th anniversary of his death, Shirley du Boulay shows his transformation from an idealistic, highly intelligent English schoolboy into a man of profound wisdom who was revered by many as a holy man and a living saint. After a long and eventful journey, often filled with controversy and anguish, Griffiths eventually found attained a spiritual wholeness at the Shantivanam ashram in India that is granted to few. It enabled him to express in simple and direct terms the underlying unity of religions, that beyond the opposites, beyond the darkness, is "that Great Person, of the brightness of the sun."
