Swami Abhishiktanada by Swami Abhishiktanada

Book Description

Swami Abhisiktananda (1910-1973) is one of the most intriguing spiritual figures of the 20th century. A Breton-born monk, he moved to India in 1948 hoping to Christianise India along Benedictine lines. However his travels led him to adopt the appearance and life of an Indian holy man. His last years were spent living as a hermit in the Himalayas. Abhishiktananda's writings reflect an extraordinary search for God, the story of a man caught between two traditions, but ultimately finding reconciliation in the truth beyond opposites.
