Haridas Chaudhuri’s Universal Religion: An Integral ViewTwo years before CIIS opened its doors, Haridas Chaudhuri wrote a remarkable little book called Modern Man’s Religion. His universal approach hailed the eternal quest for religion, but also honored the need to explore religious values that unite us rather than divide. We will explore his integral perspective that makes such a lofty idea relevant for our time. He was convinced that if we had an expanded vision, with attainable goals, we could begin to realize a new cycle of cooperation and harmony.
