Drawing on a deep knowledge of Christian scripture as well as Hindu philosophy, musician and teacher Russill Paul reveals that the mystical core of religion offers us much more than the simple solace of unthinking dogma. By demonstrating that these two seemingly separate and irreconcilable religions can actually unite in one person s spiritual practice at the center of his life as they did in his he offers an alternative to religious intolerance and strife, as well as hope for personal liberation."

Review:

"This is a profound book with a unifying message to read, practice, and embody."
-- Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation

"Russill Paul, in his book Jesus in the Lotus, takes us on a journey not beyond Christianity but through Christianity to new levels of consciousness that most religious systems never reach. Guided by his mentor, Bede Griffiths, he explores the edges of faith by going to the center. It is a refreshing book, especially for those who are spiritually disenfranchised by the current shape of organized religion."
-- John Shelby Spong, author of Jesus for the Non-Religious

"Russill Paul has seen the path between East and West through the eyes, heart, and practice of devotion. He openly shares his quest and insight through a pilgrimage of reflections on spiritual focus, action, and contemplation. Listen to the depth of his wisdom and faith."
-- Don Campbell, author of Sound Spirit and The Mozart Effect

"This brilliant and inspiring book is an antidote to the divisive vectors that currently inflame many religious sects worldwide. While respecting difference and honoring uniqueness, Russill Paul leads the reader to points of contact and harmony between Christianity, Yoga, and Hindu philosophy. Today there is a universal hunger for a new vision that unites and connects us all, without which there may not be a future for humanity. Paul's Jesus in the Lotus is an adamantine gem shedding light on the darkness of divisiveness."
-- Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words
