About: From the simple to the sublime, from the prosaic to the profound, here is a collection of 85 short essays reflecting on the life of the human spirit.

In a variety of moods and voices, Under the Divine Lote Tree builds bridges between the scholar and the poet, offering the reader a synthesis between academic and creative thinking. It explores the age-old themes of divine and human love, time, faith, joy and sorrow, truth, humour, detachment, trust, death and the afterlife, through personal thoughts and essays on such diverse themes as science and logic, the existential moment, theology, aesthetics, the self, gains and losses, and spiritual transformation. Under the Divine Lote Tree is sure to stimulate reflection and provide companionship on any spiritual journey. [georgeronald.com]
