This book arose out of the experience of a Christian monk whose life in India was spent in a profound dialogue with his Hindu friends, a dialogue which passed beyond words to 'the cave of the heart'. Central to this was Abhishiktananda's experience of advaita (non-duality), of which he met a living exemplar in Sri Ramana Maharshi. Discerning here a reality which could not be denied, he believed that "the integration of the advaitic experience into his own faith is for the Christian a necessary task', because "if Christianity should prove to be incapable of assimilating Hindu spiritual experience from within, Christians would thereby at once lose the right to claim that it (Christianity) is the universal way of salvation."
His aim in this book was "to sensitize Christian thought to the treasures which await it in India, and to prepare Christians for dialogue. "But there is here" no attempt to provide theological solutions for the problems involved in this encounter ... between Christianity and Vedanta". Rather, "its form is that of a continuous mediration, starting again and again and continually returning on itself, concerning the most fundamental themes of the encounter. It is the meditation of one who is rooted in the spiritual and intellectual traditions of the Church, but has now come into direct contact with the intuitions of the Upanishads and the living experience of the sages."
The meeting of the two great spiritual worlds of Hinduism and Christianity has too often been controversial or merely intellectual. The author was convinced that true dialogue requires a meeting at a deeper level in the Spirit, and in this book he has given a compelling invitation to his fellow-Christians to make this voyage of discovery.
The present edition is a reprint of the first English edition (1974), to which have been added the Introduction and Appendix of the original French edition, previously omitted.
