Hindu Thought and Carmelite Mysticism
Hindu Thought and Carmelite Mysticism
Description

From the Jacket

This study in comparative mysticism (originally given as lectures at the Sorbonne) explores the relationship between Hindu mystics (notably Shankara and Sri Ramakrishna) and Christian Carmelite mystics (notable St. John of the Cross), using jnana, bhakti, and raja yogas as a basis for comparison as well as the sacred scriptures of both traditions.

About the Author

Swami Siddheswarananda  (1897-1957) was a prince of the House of Cochin who after serving the Order of Ramakrishna many years in India, was sent to France in 1937 to found a Vedanta Centre near Paris. He was well known in France as an author and lecture.

William Buchanan is a retired Professor of Humanities now living at the Vivekananda Monastery and Retreat in Ganges, Michigan, U.S.A.
