Christ in India: essays towards a Hindu-Christian dialogue by Bede Griffiths( Book )

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 the 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
A new vision of reality : Western science, Eastern mysticism and Christian faith by Bede Griffiths( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author invites us to look afresh at Christianity in the context of modern physics on the one hand and Eastern mysticism on the other. Scientists now acknowledge that quantitative enquiry can reveal only one aspect of reality and to come to terms with a much deeper transcendent reality we must also be prepared to learn from Eastern traditions. The Western machanistic model of the universe, dating from the time of Galileo and Newton, must now be replaced with a new organic model -- this marks a return to the ancient traditional wisdom in which the universe was seen to consist not only of a physical dimension but also of psychological and spiritual dimensions, all of which are interrelated and interdependent. In exploring "the divine mystery behind human life" the author seeks to discover the basic unity which underlies all religion and discusses the concept of the Cosmic Person or Cosmic Lord as revealed in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. He concludes that a radical vision of a new society and a universal religion in which "the essential values of Christianity will be preserved in living relationship with the other religious traditions of the world"

The Hindu experience is a constant search for God, a search to find out the ultimate truth and ultimate reality and to experience it in the depth of the heart: in this lucid and profound book, the author presents the Hindu tradition to Christians, asking them to encounter it and to relate it to the Christian experience of God. To read this book is to make a journey of discovery: with the simplicity that can only come from long acquaintance and deep understanding, the author leads the reader through the Hindu scriptures to the Hindu understanding of the divine nature, of reality and of human existence. The book is enlivened by stories of his own encounters with wise and holy Hindus, and by his contemplation of the Hindu revelation in the light of the Christian revelation
