“The spirit without matter is nothing, matter without the spirit kills, and pure science without love is a game…”
Thanks to James Ford for posting to his Monkey Mind blog this charming interview with Raimon Panikkar filmed in Copenhagen in 1996. What a gorgeous and vibrant man. Watch this and then see if you think that Christianity has no more mystics. I especially like his bit of Auntie Mame philosophy, at about the 4:52 marker. Consider the overall dynamic: the young woman starts out trying to interview Panikkar, but very quickly adopts more of a Luke Skywalker role as the smiling sage dispenses his Yoda-like wisdom.
