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.

Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you´d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, brutal ex-cops who are also a couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world - all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly bizarre and complex cases - and the visions that he´s been having of Hindu gods aren´t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he´s seeing are a delusion - or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognised shaman of the modern world.... 1. Language: English.
