Description About the author Contents
 
Although raised Roman Catholic, Susan Stabile was ordained as a Tibetan
Buddhist nun and devoted 20 years of her life to practicing Buddhism
before returning to Catholicism in 2001. In Growing in Love and Wisdom,
she draws on this unique dual perspective to explore the value of
interreligious dialogue, the spiritual dynamics that operate across
faith traditions, and how Buddhist meditation practices can deepen
Christian prayer. She begins by examining the values and principles
shared by the two faiths and shows that both traditions seek to effect a
fundamental transformation in the lives of believers. Both stress the
need for experiences with deep emotional resonance that goes beyond the
level of concepts to touch the heart. The center of the book offers 15
Tibetan
Buddhist contemplative practices, adapted for Christian use. Stabile
provides clear instructions on how to do these meditations and helpful
commentary on each, explaining its purpose and the relation between the
Buddhist original and her Christian adaptation of it. Throughout, she
highlights the many remarkably close parallels between the teachings of
Jesus and the Buddha.  The meditations offered in this unusual book will
be extremely useful to thoughtful Christians, to those responsible for
giving spiritual direction, and also to Buddhist sympathizers who will
be intrigued and pleased to see familiar contemplations handled so
skillfully by a former Buddhist practitioner who has gratefully learned
so much from her former religion and now introduces the riches of that
tradition to her
fellow Christians.
