Bede Griffiths on the Power of Surrender


In this 3-minute video, Bede Griffiths (1906-1993) relates his profound experience of surrender, loss of fear, and gaining of unconditional love ~ a condition he believes exists within each of us. He studied at Oxford under C.S. Lewis, became a Benedictine monk and priest and moved to India in the 1950s to build a monastery. In India, he also aligned himself with Hindu beliefs and became a proponent of Vedanta-inspired Christianity. His teachings have inspired millions ~ including me ~ for nearly a half-century.

Thanks for posting this. I really love Bede Griffins, too. I read a book of his that I came across last year and studied it carefully.
He offers balance in viewing the larger world we now inhabit and is charming and warm, as well.
One of my two or three favorite spiritual teachers.
