Description
About the Book

This volume on Interreligious Spirituality in memory of Swami Joseph Samarakone is very opportune and welcome. Swami Samarakone was a great lover of India, particularly Tamil, spiritual tradition and one of the pioneers of inculturation of spirituality and of the ashram movement in India. His papers witness to the depth of his knowledge and to his ardent commitment to interreligious dialogue. His was a dialogue of life, inspiring many who either visited his ashram or who attended the seminars he participated in. This collection of his papers guarantees his enduring presence and continuing influence. It will also inspire those who come after him to continue his mission in more creative and relevant ways with the same enthusiasm that he had. The second part of the volume assures us that his confreres and friends are assimilating and carrying on his charism in new and ever pertinent ways. May God be with them!

Foreword

I am indeed very glad to write a forward to this book: "A New Vision of Inter-Religious Spirituality" - a memorial volume on Swami Joseph A. Samarakone OMI, who had been my mentor and formator.

Swami Joseph A. Samarakone OMI, though a missionary from Sri Lanka, immersed fully in the cultural, religious and spiritual tradition of our mother land, India, lived just like any other sannyasi (monk) of our land and dedicated his life and all his works to build relations between people of different faiths, promote peace and harmony among all people and to build God’s kingdom As we, the Oblates in India, celebrate the golden jubilee of our presence in India, remember with gratitude, the founding fathers namely Frs. Immanuel Mariyam Pillai OMI and Phillip Stanislas, OMI and other Oblates from our mother province, Sri Lanka, we are all the more happy to remember with gratitude Swami Joseph A Samarakone OMI for his 42 years of missionary life and his enormous contribution towards the growth of our province. He was Delegation Superior, Rector, Formator, Teacher and above all a forerunner and champion of inculturation and inter-faith dialogue. Out of 76 years of his life, 42 years of missionary life in India is something marvellous and out of these 42 years, 25 years of Ashram life and his dialogue ministry is something noteworthy. It is the person of Swami Joseph Samarakone and the birth of ashram "Aanmodaya" in Kancheepuram that has given us the Oblates in India, a new identity and a new mission in the multi- religious context of India. Not only the oblates in India but also the oblates all over the world are very proud of the person of Swami Joseph Samarakone and we owe much gratitude to him for his unique contribution towards building peace, harmony and unity among all the peoples of God. The following are the highlights of Swami Joseph Samarakone’s life and mission.

  • A fascinating teacher
  • An inspiring guru
  • An exceptional religious
  • A zealous missionary
  • A passionate seeker after truth
  • A promoter of inculturated formation
  • A model of inter-religious person
  • A trainer of inter religious persons
  • A person of simple life-style
  • A great lover of nature and of the poor
  • A person fully committed to building God’s kingdom here and now

No doubt! We have witnessed to all these remarkable qualities and works of Swami Samarakone and they are stimulus to our present and future life and mission. Although Swami Samarakone wanted to see this book during his life time, the Oblates who were working with him for the same, after his death, felt very strongly the need to bring out a memorial volume on him. Surely, swami Samarakone’s wish and desire comes to fulfilment with this work. I appreciate and thank Frs. Rayappan OMI, Harry Immanuel OMI and Chinnappan Mariasusai OMI for their initiative, effort and hard work and I do thank all others who have helped in the completion of this work. For the realization of this work many scholars, friends, associates and students of swami Samarakone have contributed their scholarly writings. Their contribution indeed is complimentary to swami Samarakone’s thoughts and reflections. I appreciate and thank all of them for their love and support to Swami Samarakone and for their great contributions towards this work.

Swami Samarakone, as someone dedicated to building peace and harmony, deserves this honour and respect. Definitely, he through his very life and ministry has shown the church in India and the people of other faiths the way to peaceful and harmonious living and the way to building a new society - Kingdom of God. Surely this book as a memorial volume on swami Samarakone, OMI will inspire and enrich many who are into the ministry of inculturation and dialogue and those who are into the great mission of building God’s kingdom.
