Description
Summary:"The Religion of Man is a compilation of lectures by Rabindranath Tagore, edited by Tagore and drawn largely from his Hibbert Lectures given at Oxford University in May 1930. A Brahmo playwright and poet of global renown, Tagore deals with the universal themes of God, divine experience, illumination, and spirituality. This International Edition combines all existent English editions into a single volume, including the previous foreword by Philip Novak; the introduction to the British edition by Andrew Robinson; four appendices from an earlier American edition, featuring a brief conversation between Tagore and Albert Einstein, titlx̀ed "Note on the Nature of Reality" and a new foreword by religion writer and editor Jon M. Sweeney. Tagore is unequivocal in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual triumphs of science, but he writes as a poet and philosopher. Man must always be a music-maker and dreamer of dreams; man must never lose, in his material quests, his longing for the touch of the divine. Tagore traces the growth of the idea of God from primitive notions to universality. Today, as he says, all barriers are down and "the God of humanity has arrived at the gates of the ruined temple of the tribe." His book rings with joy and affirmation, overstepping all limitations of race and creed"--
