81 of 81 people found the following review helpful By Kerry Walters VINE VOICE on March 1, 2004
Format: Paperback
When I think of the great Christian spiritual masters of the last 100 years, the names that come to mind belong to those folks who dared to leave behind the comfortable and familiar and venture out into the unknown spiritual wilderness. In so doing, they stumbled across new insights and rediscovered forgotten truths that vitalize all of us.
Bede Griffiths, the British born and bred Benedictine monk who traveled to India at the age of fifty and lived there for almost 35 years, is one of these intrepid sojourners. Griffiths reanimated a sometimes wilting Christianity by helping Christians to discover its deep contemplative core, and he did this by recognizing the shared patterns between Christian and Hindu contemplation. Living as a Christian sannyasi (a seeker of God in the Hindu tradition) for almost half of his life, Griffiths' experiences and writings help the rest of us to see and appreciate our Christian tradition with fresh eyes while at the same time celebrating the spiritual truths in other faith traditions.

Thomas Matus' well-chosen anthology offers a wonderful introduction to those unfamiliar with Bede Griffiths and a convenient resource for those who know and love him. The selections represent Griffiths' autobiographical writings, his reflections on reason and intuition ("masculine" and "feminine"), his conviction that Hinduism and Christianity can complement and enrich one another, and his ultimate certainty that advaita, or nondualism, is the heart of all great religious traditions. The selections are prefaced by an introductory essay that highlights some of the central themes in Griffiths' work.
Reading Griffiths and reflecting on his insight that there is a central unity, a nondualism, that ties all creation together, gives new meaning to familiar Christian categories such as the Mystical Body or the Vine and the Branch.

In the essays included in Essential Writings, Bede Griffiths clothes the essence of Christian doctrine in the deep experience of mystical prayer, a winning and a radiant combination. Hindu mystical prayer, which preceded Christianity by many centuries, Griffiths sees as perhaps the oldest existing form of direct experience of the Divine. The strength of its devotion is the sanctifying of all life, which Griffiths embraces gladly. The weakness he perceives as the Hindu resignation to social ills, an almost crippling fatalism. He lived out his own Benedictine practice in an ashram in India closely modeled on Hindu and Buddhist monastic practice, not seeking to covert but to welcome and understand his neighbors.

This was a great introduction to a great man. Book arrived in good condition. There should be more than enough professional reviews available to better judge content.
