Overview

The Truth, the Way, the Life offers a careful reading of the three holy mantras of Srivainavism, a south Indian Hindu tradition dedicated to Narayana, Lord of the universe, and Sri, his eternal spouse. The mantras, short prayers rich in theological and devotional meaning, explain and encourage a way of life dedicated to praise and service, surrender and dependence on divine grace and so introduce key topics that Christian readers will find familiar and still central to the spiritual life today. / Francis Clooneys commentary is explicitly Christian and yet deeply indebted to the classic reading of the mantras by the fourteenth-century theologian Vedanta Desika; it thus exemplifies an interreligious learning appropriate to the twenty-first century and yet, in the end, still deeply Christian.
