The Spiritual Life

A Dialogue of Buddhist and Christian Monastics

Edited by Donald Mitchell and James Wiseman

In 1996, His Holiness the Dalai Lama joined with his fellow Buddhist and Christian monastics and scholars at Gethsemani Abbey, Kentucky, to discuss the spiritual life. This book is a unique collection of the extraordinary conversation that took place, as these men and women religious examined the nature of each other’s practices, scriptures, experiences, and beliefs through their different lenses. Featuring the thoughts of the Dalai Lama, Ewert Cousins, Ven. Yifa, Mary Margaret Funk, and Zoketsu Norman Fischer, The Spiritual Life is a work of grace and discernment from individuals attempting to live with authenticity and humility.
