About this book

Introduction

These studies in religion embrace Hindu, Buddhist and Christian themes and examine the spiritual insights and philosophical reflections of prominent thinkers from different religious traditions. Where appropriate comparisons are drawn between the views of representatives of the different traditions from an empathetic standpoint and in a way that would meet with the approval of adherents of those religions. The main aim of these essays in the pluralistic religious situation of today is to enable us to escape from the small island of our own cultural tradition and to explore the richness and diversity of other cultures with their wide variety of religious experiences.
