The Spiritual Guide: Perspectives and Traditions is prepared and edited by an international team of researchers, contributors, editors and readers with a wide variety of religious and cultural backgrounds.

A two-volume work, The Spiritual Guide: Perspectives and Traditions explores the nature and role of the spiritual teacher and the master-student relationship in the Hindu, Taoist, Jewish, Graeco-Roman, Buddhist, Christian, Sufi, and Sikh traditions. To attune their teachings to the needs of different times and places, spiritual guides have endowed humanity by employing a rich repertoire of teaching techniques and modes of interacting with seekers. The Spiritual Guide illustrates the stunning diversity of these approaches and offers a range of quotations from each tradition. The work also shows the underlying unity amongst this diversity – how the transformative bond of love that is fostered between student and teacher powers the quest to experience transcendent reality and become whole.
