Harvey, who has studied under Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist, and Christian spiritual teachers and written several translations-interpretations of the Sufi mystical poet Rumi, has been a spokesperson for Mother Meera, an Indian woman whose followers believe she is an avatar (divine manifestation). But Harvey has broken with her and renounced the idea of spiritual gurus. In this book, he discusses manifestations of the Divine Mother or feminine principle in Hindu, Sufi, Buddhist, and Christian teachings. He believes the next 20 years will determine the fate of life on earth and that "a new spiritual age is potentially dawning for humankind...in which the divine could be present intimately, normally, consciously, in all things and activities...through the grace of the Mother." Recommended for those with eclectic spiritual and environmental interests.?Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.

Andrew Harvey is a renowned writer, lecturer, and teacher. An Englishman born in India, Harvey was educated at Oxford, and at twenty-one became the youngest fellow in the history of All Soul’s College. In 1977, he returned to India and began a lifelong spiritual quest, studying and practicing Hindu mysticism at the ashram of Sri Aurobindo, with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Thuksey Rinpoche, and with the Christian mystic Bede Griffiths. Returning to teach and write in Europe and America, Harvey continued his explorations with extensive study in Eastern and Western mystical literature.
Harvey is the author of two spiritual autobiographies, A Journey in Ladakh (1983) and Hidden Journey: A Spiritual Awakening (1991). His interpretation and translations of the work of the twelfth-century Sufi mystical poet Rumi have appeared in Love’s Fire (1988), Speaking Flame (1989), and The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi (Frog, LTD., 1994). He co-edited the bestselling Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche (1991), and is co-author (with Mark Matousek) of Dialogues with a Modern Mystic (1994).
Andrew Harvey lives in San Francisco with his husband, photographer and writer Eryk Hanut, and teaches at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He travels regularly in North America, Europe, and India to study, teach, and write.
