    wisdom at its best

    This is one of the wisest books I've ever read. In the wake of the sage Frithjof Schuon, it illuminates subtle aspects of the human condition with astonishing clarity. Some passages are really breathtaking. I read the book very slowly, as if sipping a very fine and rare wine.

    A good introduction to the Perennial Philosophy

    If you're interested in the philosophia perennis -- but have found the work of Frithjof Schuon sometimes difficult to penetrate -- this book provides not only a good introduction, but an in-depth discussion of many of the concepts underlying the Perennial Philosophy.
