The modern world is characterized by its fascination with relativity and individualism. Into this morass, the writings of Frithjof Schuon enter like a bolt of lightning that both clears the air and brings serenity in its wake. The perspective of the perennial philosophy restores a sense of proportion in affirming the transcendent Real and then draws all the consequences spiritually and humanly, as well as aesthetically on the plane of forms.
At the level of ideas, Schuon is an unsurpassable expositor of first principles, and included here are seminal chapters such as Atma-Maya and Truth and Presence. Schuon's fluency in so many "languages" of the spirit is widely acclaimed. There are gems here from the traditional worlds of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. These essays definitively establish that the Sacred has not only the first but also the final word.
