Meet the Author

Marco Pallis (1895-1989) was a Renaissance man: a gifted musician, composer, mountaineer, translator of “perennialist” works, and a widely respected author on Tibetan Buddhism. Pallis traveled extensively in the Himalayas, where at first he climbed mountains and later studied Buddhism from Lamas within the tradition. From 1936 onward, he was a practicing Buddhist with the Tibetan name of Thubden Tendzin

Brother Wayne Teasdale (1945-2004) was a lay monk who combined the traditions of Christianity and Hinduism in the way of Christian sannyasa. An activist and teacher in building common ground between religions, Teasdale served on the board of trustees of the Parliament of the World’s Religions. He was a member of the Monastic Interreligious Dialogue and helped draft their Universal Declaration on Nonviolence. Brother Teasdale was also an adjunct professor at DePaul University, Columbia College, and the Catholic Theological Union (where he lived in Chicago) and was coordinator of the Bede Griffiths International Trust. He was co-editor of The Community of Religions, with George Cairns, and the author of two books, A Monk in the World, and The Mystic Heart and dozens of articles on mysticism and religion. He held an M.A. in philosophy from St. Joseph College and a Ph.D. in theology from Fordham University.
