In forest clearings, beneath star-filled skies, in cathedrals, and before the hearth... women and men have always given voice to the impulse to celebrate the world that surrounds and sustains them. Now, as we face a diminished present and an uncertain future, the need to honor the interconnection between people and the planet is heightened. From Walt Whitman, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Black Elk, to Margaret Atwood, the Rig Veda, and the chant of a Samar fisherman, the varied voices linked here offer songs and prayers for land, sea, and air; graces for food; and invocations, poems, and passages that reveal in the common spiritual heritage of all who cherish creation.

In seinem Buch "Be Love Now" gibt Ram Dass einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen langen spirituellen Weg. Der heute 80-Jährige lässt uns teilhaben an den wichtigsten Erfahrungen seiner Transformation vom bedeutenden Harvard-Psychologieprofessor zum "Diener Gottes". Die Begegnung mit seinem Guru Neem Karoli Baba, liebevoll Maharaj-ji genannt, führt zu einem Leben in bedingungsloser Liebe - der Essenz des Daseins. "Be love now" ist ein sehr persönliches Buch und gleich zeitig eine wundervolle Entdeckungsreise, die Herz und Geist öffnet. "Stell dir vor, dass dich jemand mehr liebt, als du je zuvor geliebt worden bist. Man liebt dich stärker noch als deine Mutter dich als Kind geliebt hat, mehr als dein Vater dich je liebte, dein Kind oder dein dich liebender Partner. Diese Liebe will nichts von dir, ist nicht auf persönliche Befriedigung aus und will nichts mehr, als dass du völlig erfüllt bist. Du wirst nur für das geliebt, was du bist, deshalb, weil es dich gibt."

In a world that feels increasingly fragile, people will continue to look for new prayers and new ways to pray. While there are a number of anthologies of prayer available, no book – until now – has attempted to provide a collection that focuses specifically on prayers for a wide range of modern challenges, from the personal to the global. Prayers for Hope and Comfort covers issues facing individuals (illness, addiction); those challenged in relationships (aging parents, divorce); local communities (natural disasters, unemployment); the larger world (poverty, hunger, war); and creation itself (loss of rainforests, species extinction, global warming). Prayers for Hope and Comfort offers readers solace, comfort, and hope, drawing from the wisdom of every era, every major faith and tradition, and the important voices of those who have lived through such experiences themselves. The book contains selections from some of the world’s most profound poets and thinkers: David Whyte, Eckhart Tolle, Sister Joan Chittister, and Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as traditional prayers and verses from every time and place.
