Ruhi Book 1 (new)

Reflections on the Life of the Spirit (new edition)

The Creative Word, the nature of prayer, and the mystery of life after death, are the three themes explored in Reflections on the Life of the Spirit.

In the context of these themes, participants explore such concepts as the relationship between words and deeds; truthfulness; unity; and freedom from backbiting. Participants advance understanding of what constitutes prayer; why prayer is essential; the way in which prayers can be offered; times for prayer; types of prayer; and the effect of prayer. They then explore the relationship between the soul and the body; the relationship between the contingent and the eternal realms; the purpose of earthly existence; the inherent nobility and dignity of the human being; and the role of Divine Educators.
