The Mystic Heart: Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World's Religions
The Mystic Heart proves that what so often forms the basis of conflict can be a meeting place of understanding. Drawing on his extraordinary experience as an interreligious monk combining his profound Christian faith with an intimate understanding of Hinduism's ancient traditions, Brother Wayne Teasdale reveals the power of a universal spirituality and its practical elements: solidarity with all life; moral capacity; nonviolence; self-knowledge; selfless service; simplicity of lifestyle; daily practice; and serving as a prophetic witness in the causes of justice, peace, and protecting creation. He shows that comparing religions is more than a matter of increasing tolerance; it can lead to a greater truth.
