A book and a rose …quite a combination
Ravi Ravindra, The Pilgrim Soul, Wheaton, IL: Quest Books, 2014. Paperback, $15.95, 140 pages.
Dr. Ravi Ravindra is Professor Emeritus at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Back in the late 1970s and most of the 80s, Ravi serves on several Theosophical committees that I also was on. These were very exciting years when Dora Kunz was the president of the TSA and science was becoming very important in lending support to many of the claims that Theosophy had been making for years.
Ravi was in the perfect position to help us connect the various areas since he held positions at Dalhousie in physics, comparative religion, and philosophy departments. I was amazed at Ravi’s breadth of knowledge not only in religion and physics, but he was widely diverse in other spiritual traditions. Since those early days, I have always stayed up with the latest books he has been producing since I know that I always will learn something new. This book is no exception.
