NEW BOOK FROM CHAVARA CENTRAL SECRETARIAT (as part of the "Theological Studies on Saint Chavara" series)

Thomas Kochumuttom, Spirituality of Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara
Proposed to publish jointly by Chavara Central Secretariat (Chavara Hills, Kochi) and Dharmaram Publications in August 2017
Pages: xx + 424 (including index); Hardbound
Price: Rs. 360

Spirituality of Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara is a sequel to Fr Thomas Kochumuttom’s earlier work, Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara (2014). While the latter deals with the life story of St Chavara, the present one concentrates on his spirituality. This study is broader in scope and different in perspective. In addition to looking at St Chavara’s life and undertakings from a spiritual point of view, it brings in a lot of fresh data that have bearing on his spirituality. It also covers the Saint’s teachings on various theological issues and spiritual life. The points of discussion are well substantiated with original documents and authentic testimonies. While quoting the relevant texts from St Chavara’s writings, Kochumuttom makes his own translation that sets an example of accurate and lucid English rendering of such works. The presentation is scientific but simple so that it will interest both the academic and the lay sections of readers.

Thomas Kochumuttom, born in 1941 in Kerala, was ordained a CMI priest in 1971. He holds a master’s degree in philosophy and a doctorate in Buddhism from the universities of Pune (India) and Lancaster (UK) respectively. He began his academic career as lecturer in philosophy and spirituality in Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram, Bengaluru, and then moved to Wardha as rector of Darsana Institute of Philosophy. In 1999, he opted for a quiet life of prayer in Jeevan Dhara Ashram, Jaiharikhal in the Himalayas, and ever since he is the Acharya there guiding individuals and groups of sādhakas in spiritual pursuit. His works include books and articles in Indian Christian thoughts and the spiritual legacy of St Chavara. In 2014, he published a detailed as well as easily readable biography of the Indian Saint Chavara.
