The Life and Legacy of the Benedictine Monk, Swami Abhishiktananda

William Skudlarek

In 1948, the French Benedictine monk Henri Le Saux (1910–1973) visited India for the first time, and began a twenty-five year long quest to fathom the depths of Vedanta and the Upanishads. Abhishiktananda (“Bliss of the Anointed One”), as Le Saux renamed himself, sought to retain his abiding Christian faith while personally immersing himself in Hindu spirituality. He also encountered some of the extraordinary sages of the Indian sub-continent, such as Sri Ramana Maharshi and Gnanananda.

These articles about Abhishiktananda, gathered on the one hundred anniversary of his birth, provide not only personal recollections of this remarkable man, but examine the legacy of the life and work of one of the first practitioners of Hindu–Christian dialogue.
