This is a collection of verses, and some have been taken from an earlier collection, also called Gleanings, first published in Calcutta in 1993. There are several about the Christian experience, titled according to the calendar of the church’s year. Then there are a few about the experience of nonduality. Some tell a story. Some are for fun. They are all about life or observations on life. “Intimations of Joy” points toward the nature of real spiritual life for which we are born and a vision of what that might be like. Whatever is reflected in any particular poem, the underlying philosophy is that life has meaning and how we live it is very important. In the end, we realize that we are pilgrims who are making our way back through many obstacles to a paradise whose nature is spontaneity and joyfulness.
