A Human Search: The Life of Bede Griffiths


Father Bede Griffiths (1906 – 1993)  was an English Benedictine monk who, ‘in search of the other half of his soul’ went to India in 1968
An independent thinker, a curious mind and a committed Christian, Father Bede looked for the universal truth at the heart of all religions.
His ashram at Shantivanam in Tamil Nadu, southern India, became a centre of prayer and meditation for many thousands of people. In honouring the truth and wisdom in both the Eastern and the Western traditions, Father Bede reached out to people, many of whom could not find God in their traditional churches.
