In this book, which has been called a synthesis of his whole message, Frithjof Schuon invites us to explore aspects of humankind's relationship with the Divine, including our sense of the sacred, the conditions of our existence, the symbolism of the human body, and the question of accepting or refusing God's message. In doing so, Schuon paves the way for a true spiritual engagement. This revised edition has been fully retranslated and contains valuable editor's notes and a glossary, plus a fascinating appendix of previously unpublished writings.

About the Author:

Frithjof Schuon is best known as the foremost spokesman of the Perennial Philosophy and as a philosopher in the metaphysical current of Shankara and Plato. Schuon was born in 1907 in Basle, Switzerland, of German parents and died in the United States in 1998.
Patrick Laude is a professor at Georgetown University, School of Foreign Service in Qatar. He lives in Qatar.

Review:

“[Schuon is] the most important religious thinker of our century.” (Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions)

"This synthesis of the whole metaphysical message of Schuon, summarizes in three sections his teachings concerning epistemology, metaphysics, and the science of man. . . . The second section present[s] the most succinct and complete study he has ever made on the nature of the Divine Principle." (Seyyed Hossein Nasr, The George Washington University, author of Sufi Essays and The Heart of Islam)

“This luminous survey . . . cannot but dissipate the difficulties and troubles that modern mankind often encounters when confronted with the necessary, but sometimes disappointing, exclusivism of revealed religions and the ‘human margin' that at times obscures them.” (Patrick Laude)
