Raimon Panikkar's contributions to comparative religions and Christian theology have made him a pioneer in East-West and interreligious dialogue. A gifted and original thinker, Panikkar here issues an invitation to a world spirituality, a human cosmic trust. Spirituality without responsibility is egoism or cowardice, he asserts. He shows how the intense personal and societal reassessment that comes from a serious encounter with world religious traditions radically challenges modern Western assumptions and illumines complex questions of action and contemplation, immanence and transcendence, pluralism and truth, and religious responsibility for the world.
