Bede Griffiths (1906-1993), was a Benedictine monk and close friend of C.S. Lewis who went to India in the 1950s, to "discover the other half of my soul." He donned the saffron robes of a Hindu monk and revitalized a Catholic ashram in southern India. By the time of his death he had become a leading figure of Christian-Hindu dialogue, drawing thousands of people to his talks all over the world. Beyond the Darkness, the first major biography of Bede Griffiths, is now finally available in paperback. Shirley du Boulay shows the transformation of Griffiths from an idealistic, highly intelligent, serious schoolboy into a man of profound wisdom who emanated unconditional love. During his life of intellectual and spiritual discovery he was often revered as a holy man and a living saint, although his long and eventful journey was filled with controversy, pain and anguish. At the end of it all, a life full of excitement and passion culminated in spiritual wholeness.
