2014 Spring-Summer: Spirituality in Poetry and Fiction

Jun 30, 2014 | Issues | 0 comments

Issue 68

From ancient times, spiritual culture has been largely transmitted through poetry and storytelling. Didactic religious prose didn’t even arise until the Axial Age, c. 900—300 B.C.E. And even then poetry and storytelling continued to be important vehicles for communicating spiritual ideas. They engage the imagination and express truths that are often inaccessible to the rational mind. In this issue, American Vedantist celebrates contemporary spiritual poetry and fiction.
