This twelfth volume emphasizes the importance of veneration for the source of Life at all levels of human development. It focuses in detail on The Religious Urge and The Reverential Life, categories seventeen and eighteen (of twenty-eight) in the personal notebooks Dr. Paul Brunton reserved for posthumous publication. With broad tolerance and critical insight, The Religious Urge speaks directly to the individuating modern mentality. It welcomes the diversity in religion and acknowledges, with profound gratitude the invaluable services of inspired spiritual teachers throughout the worldís history and in the contemporary scene; but at the same time it fully sympathizes with those for whom institutional religion has become an oppressive cause of fruitless conflict. Part 2, The Reverential Life, focuses on the development of our relationship to the divine through the feeling function. It gives an individualized, practical approach to honest communion with the sacred through intelligent prayer, rational devotion, and informed, mature humility. A wonderful resource of aspirations, devotions, and practical techniques for reducing the ego's obstructive arrogance, it is first a section to be drawn upon for inspiration and only secondarily a text to be studied.
