3. “Applied Spirituality: A Spiritual Vision for the Dialogue of Religions” by Swami Agnivesh (hardcover edition), $20 + postage and handling

Swami Agnivesh is a Swami with a difference, a holy man who is also an untiring social worker and 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. 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 religious intolerance, Naxalism, 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. Impeccably argued and inspiringly written, the book articulates his vision of what he calls ‘proactive social spirituality’ against the many ills that plague our country and the planet: alcoholism, casteism, religious obscurantism, political despotism, communalism and corruption.

Applied Spirituality (paperback) will be available soon through the RDC Store.  For the time being, email us at <> to order a copy.
