These poetic homilies
began a long time ago, at Fané-les-Roses, a Mission Station hidden in the highlands of Papua. In this magnificent location, the thought came to address, in the course of the Three Year Cycle, all the major themes of our Christian faith.
They draw on two sources: the Christian Gospel and the Tantra of Kashmir Shaivism.
I have done this in two forms, one poetic, the other in prose.
