9780521385169: The Body Divine: The Symbol of the Body in the Works of Teilhard de Chardin and Ramanuja (Cambridge Studies in Religious Traditions)

The Body Divine explores the ways in which two spiritual teachers, one Christian (Teilhard de Chardin) and one Hindu (R^D=am^D=anuja) have seen the world as inherently divine, and have presented this insight theologically through the use of a symbol, that of the "body of the divine" (the body of Christ/Brahman). In a careful study of their beliefs, Dr. Hunt Overzee shows how both thinkers came to understand reality in terms of consciousness, believing that salvation/release is realized through attaining the Lord. This goal is approximated through a changed view of things, in which everything is seen to belong to the Lord and to manifest His presence. The author compares those spiritual practices taught by each thinker in order to help people attain the Lord, and places these practices in a broader context of practices for transforming consciousness. In so doing, Dr. Hunt Overzee makes an important contribution to comparative theology, and uses her subjects as the starting point for an exploration of the wide-ranging implications of a religious symbol whose potency is perennial, cross-cultural, and of continuing contemporary importance.

Book Description:

The book makes an significant contribution to comparative theology, and explores the wide-ranging implications of a religious symbol whose potency is perennial, cross-cultural, and of continuing contemporary importance.

Review:

"This is a comprehensive and scholarly study of the comparisons to be drawn between two religious traditions on the subject of the world as the body of the divine as exemplified in the writings of two significant thinkers....It is a most competent exposition of the positions of the writers concerned...." Glyn Richards, Asian Thought and Society
