The Truth, The Way, The Life

The Truth, the Way, the Life offers a careful reading of the three holy mantras of Srivainavism, a south Indian Hindu tradition dedicated to Narayana, Lord of the universe, and Sri, his eternal spouse. The mantras, short prayers rich in theological and devotional meaning, explain and encourage a way of life dedicated to praise and service, surrender and dependence on divine grace — and so introduce key topics that Christian readers will find familiar and still central to the spiritual life today. / Francis Clooney’s commentary is explicitly Christian and yet deeply indebted to the classic reading of the mantras by the fourteenth-century theologian Vedanta Desika; it thus exemplifies an interreligious learning appropriate to the twenty-first century and yet, in the end, still deeply Christian.
