Prayer (Norwich: Canterbury Press, 2006)

First published in 1967 in India, Prayer is a short (120 pages) but substantial exploration of its topic, in the light of its author’s lifetime of exploration which crossed the boundaries between east and west. Born in Brittany in 1910 and christened Henri Le Saux, the author became a Benedictine monk and moved to India where he prayed alongside great Christians (Bede Griffiths) and Hindus (Ramana Maharshi) and took a new name, which means “Bliss of the Anointed Lord.” Like all great interfaith encounters, the spirituality of Prayer is not a mishmash but rather a deeply Christian book, deeply informed by the nondual wisdom of Vedanta. This particular translation is based on an expanded French edition which was published in 1971, two years before the author’s death.
