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.


Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, is the exiled spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. Born in 1935, he was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama and was enthroned in 1940. Following the suppression of the Tibetan national uprising in 1959, he was given political asylum in India. He is widely recognized as an advocate of world peace and has received many honors, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
