Henri Le Saux (1910-1973) was a remarkable French Benedictine who spent the last twenty-four years of his life in India where he became known as Swami Abhishiktananda. After an early encounter with Ramana Maharshi and a series of intense mystical experiences on Mt Arunachala, Abhishiktananda immersed himself in traditional Indian philosophy and spirituality. He retained his Christian commitments but sought to reconcile these with the teachings and practices of Advaita Vedanta, and to live out the Hindu ideal of sannyasa (renunciation). Author Bio: Harry Oldmeadow is co-ordinator of Philosophy and Religious Studies at La Trobe University in Australia and author of the acclaimed Traditionalism: Religion in the Light of the Perennial Philosophy (2000), an authoritative introduction to the perspective of Perennialism.
