From the Publisher
Annotation In SPIRITUAL GENIUS, Gallagher searches for enlightenment, and finds it, in a Tibetan Buddhist hermit, an Evangelical preacher, a Hindu goddess, and more, and asks how others can learn from their example.
Annotation 1 Winifred Gallagher takes a journalistic approach to the spiritual quest, providing telling glimpses into the everyday lives of 10 different kinds of spiritual warriors: a popular rabbi, the director of an orphanage in India, an order of contemplative nuns, a female Muslim activist, and six others. Gallagher profiles her subjects with the unblinking and unsentimental eye of a career journalist, exposing their humanity as well as the extraordinary qualities that have allowed them to achieve a measure of grace and enlightenment on the earthly plane. It is this balanced approach to her subjects that suggests that "spiritual genius" is not reserved for a few people, but is a potential state we can all aspire to.
Editors Note Presents profiles of ten modern-day men and women celebrated for their remarkable spiritual gifts, ranging from a devout Muslim professor who crusades for women's rights to a woman recognized as a Hindu goddess.
