The Teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti

Salvado's letters

From ABC's Compass, a documentary on Rosendo Salvado, a Benedictine monk who founded the tiny religious community of New Norcia in Western Australia in 1847.
Through correspondence with a dear friend in France, Salvado’s personal insights and growing affection for the Western Australian bush and the indigenous people he came to love are documented. They are a powerful insight into a brilliant and compassionate man way ahead of his time.
