Every age has its visionaries. Bede Griffiths, the gentle Benedictine monk who traveled to India to seek the other half of his soul was one such spiritual giant. Like Mother Teresa and Thich Nhat Hanh, Father Bede's spirituality transcends sectarian labels. His Shantivanam ("Forest of Peace") monastery in India is Christian in faith but Hindu in lifestyle. The essays and stories in the moving tribute to Father Bede by such luminaries as Thomas Berry dissolve the boundaries between Christian belief and Eastern practice.

His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan People. He has written a number of books on Buddhism and philosophy and has received many international awards, including the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize.
