Film Lectio II - A Human Search and The New Creation in Christ
Starts 10am Wed May 22
Repeated 6pm Wed May 22
Born into English middle class in 1906 and Oxford educated, Bede Griffiths OSB was a brilliant religious scholar and prolific author. This film tells his story, from his experiment with communal living in the English countryside, to his decision to become a Benedictine brother, and his creation of a meeting place for East and West at an ashram in Southern India. It was there he spent his last 37 years as a Catholic monk living as a Hindu holyman.
He wrote many books widely viewed as spiritual classics, including The Golden String, Return to the Center, A New Vision of Reality, and The Marriage of East and West.
A person of exceptional learning and profound spiritual realization, his influence transcends religious dogma and speaks directly to the spirit. A Human Search is an intimate portrait of one of the greatest mystics and thinkers of the 20th Century.
