A cardboard box is found on a shelf of a London library. When the mystified librarian opens it, she screams before she falls unconscious to the floor. Within the labyrinthine recesses of the Vatican, a beautiful assassin swears she will eliminate all who do not believe in her twisted credo. An elite army of thirteen calling itself the Lashkare Talatashar has scattered around the globe. The fate of its members curiously resembles that of Christ and his Apostles. Their agenda is Armageddon. A Hindu astrologer spots a conjunction of the stars and nods to himself in grim realization of the end of the world. In Tibet a group of Buddhist monks searches for a reincarnation, much in the way their ancestors searched Judea for the Son of God. In strife-torn Kashmir, a tomb called Rozabal holds the key to a riddle that arises in Jerusalem and gets answered at Vaishno Devi. In The Rozabal Line, a thriller swirling between continents and centuries, Ashwin Sanghi traces a pattern that curls backward to the violent birth of religion itself. 1. Language: English.

Father Dom Bede Griffiths was a much revered mystic who grew beyond his Christian traditions to embrace and embody the philosophical grounding of eastern thought. His gift of unconditional love and the divine presence he brought to this world were transformative to his students. His teachings speak to the ever widening numbers of people finding greater meaning beyond the scope of their root traditions. In this conversation Brother Wayne Teasdale and Asha and Russill Paul share their experience of Father Bede and his legacy, and the promise it holds for the world we face today. Russill Paul explains, ´´As we move into this age in which people feel that they need more than one tradition to feel complete and whole and find balance in their lives, Bede is an icon of interspiritual integrity, because somehow he found a balance in the wholeness of this East-West, male-female, Hindu-Christian meeting point. Somehow he lived and breathed it, and set something in motion for a lot of different people around the world.´´ The late Brother Wayne Teasdale is the author of Bede Griffiths: An Introduction to His Interspiritual Thought (Skylight Paths 2003), A Monk in the World: Cultivating a Spiritual Life (New World Library 2002) and The Mystic Heart: Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World´s Religions (New World Library 1999). Russill Paul is a recording artist and creator of the Yoga of Sound 3 CD set. Asha Paul is a writer, yoga teacher; holds a doctorate in Natural Health, and teaches at the University of Creation Spirituality. Brother Wayne, Asha and Russill are trustees of the Bede Griffiths International Trust. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Toms.
