"Ashram Diary" accompanies the reader to Shantivanam, an ashram (hermitage) in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Shantivanam began in 1950 when two French priests put on the orange robes of Hindu renunciants and initiated their life of meditation by the sacred river Kaveri. In 1968, an English monk, Bede Griffiths, became the ashram's guru and taught there until his passing in 1993. During the last nine years of Griffiths' life, Thomas Matus listened to his teachings and shared in the life of the ashram.In this book, Matus recounts his experience of India, its people, and its spiritual culture during frequent retreats at Shantivanam. He narrates his travels to sacred Hindu and Buddhist shrines and his conversations with fellow seekers on the path. Honestly examining his own faith and vocation as a monk, Matus invites the reader to share his quest: to rethink Christianity in Indian terms and India in Christian terms, in order to discover the one Reality beyond all names and forms, in which faith and spiritual searching reach their ultimate and blessed end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fascinating A... Ashram Diary has some marvelous material in it and would appeal to a lot of people. Shirley du Boulay, author of the definitive biography of Bede Griffiths, Beyond the Darkness Ashram Diary is a contemplative journey. In our world, ravaged by devastation and war, the words of Thomas Matus will replenish our lives with passion, energy, and love. Truly a timely book. Jim Conlon, director of Sophia Center, Oakland, California, author of Lyrics for Re-Creation: Language for the Music of the Universe Ashram Diary, from the heart of one who loves Father Bede Griffiths, is truly a way of transformation. With a deep penetration into everyday life at Shantivanam, the "Forest of Peace," Matus' diary looks in on, and between the lines of, Father Bede's own writings and teachings. Thomas Matus has caught the heart of the guru in action. Pascaline Coff, O.S.B., founding member of the Bede Griffiths Trust
