The Ashram and the TRINITY
The contemplative focus of the spirituality of the Abbe Monchanin was directed towards his living devotion to the Holy Trinity. He spoke of India as the “Land of the Trinity”. It is important to understand this spirituality of the Holy Trinity as not only reaching towards the Transcendent, as experienced by the great contemplatives who aspired to the Triune God beyond name and form, but also as a realization of the immanence of Trinitarian love and solidarity with other creatures. Thus as Leonardo Boff argues in his Trinity and Society, the Christian concept of Trinity is the basis for all dialogue, and commitment to justice here on earth.
