Abstract
"'Love the pitcher less and the water more.' This is how the Sufi poet Rumi fashioned the key to a global spirituality -- not a new religion, but a growing recognition that the religions we have are multiform containers of a single precious planetary resource, idioms of a universal spiritual grammar. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful heeding of Rumi's counsel than Thich Nhat Hanh's Living Buddha, Living Christ, a reading of Buddhism and Christianity (and, by implication, other faiths) as vast cultural-symbolic contexts for enabling human ethical maturity." ~ from the review
