Applied Spirituality: A Spiritual Vision for the Dialogue of Religions

Swami Agnivesh (Author)

A call to make religion and spirituality applicable to our everyday lives from one of the most prominent names in our social-political religious discourses

Swami Agnivesh is a swami with a difference, a holy man who is as much an untiring social worker as he is a political activist. In Applied Spirituality, he discusses his views on religion and spirituality from the vantage point of his religious learning, leavened by his decades-long work with the underprivileged sections of society. He reasons how religion and spirituality can be applied in our day-to-day lives so as to make them resonate in a more practical manner.

Addressing issues as diverse as increasing religious intolerance, Naxalism and social injustice, human rights, world trade and women’s empowerment, Swami Agnivesh calls for a transformation of society through a multi-pronged approach that involves extensive interfaith dialogue.
