Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author talks about Sara Grant, the Hindu-Christian pioneer who inspired and oriented our Indian pilgrimage. Sister Sara entered into inculturation activity whole-heartedly, first by transcending differences between Christian church backgrounds (Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Evangelical) for the formation of an ashram, and then by devoting her studies to locating the cross-over moments in each religion. Liberation theologywith its emphasis on the Gospels preferential option for the poor and seeing Christ in the least among ushelped give her a larger social context for her purpose. Sara Grant wrote many essays on this subject, and presented several papers at conferences around India. The major task she undertook was interpreting the writings of Hindu philosopher Sankara (also known as Sankaracarya), the first to consolidate the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta.
