Sublime Love is an enquiry into the heart of all religions and spiritualities, into that which gives them their meaningfulness. Sublime Love first seeks to establish what spiritual love is, and what it entails. The second part is a comprehensive collection of this love’s most important non-mystical writings.
In the essay, first many questions are raised and responses given from a personal perspective – the only possible primary ‘evidence’. Then three well-known scriptural accounts of spiritual love are given in full with discussion: Krishna, Jesus, and the Buddha. Questions were put to authorities on spiritual love (priests, rabbis, monks, and the like).
After a short context-setting introduction to each entry, the Anthology presents substantial extracts from 35 writings, including: Aquinas, Aurobindo, Bahya, Dionysium, Fromm, al Ghazzali, Gibran, Gurdjieff, Kierkegaard, Lewis, Maslow, Merton, Mo-tse, Plato, Plotinus, Tolstoy, and Vivekananda.
