Synopsis: This book explores three themes: the timeless messages of traditional Religion; the modern obscuration of this perennial Wisdom; and the spiritual encounter between East and West. Topics include the Australian Aborigines, the Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and key Perennialist figures such as Frithjof Schuon, Ananda Coomaraswamy, and Huston Smith. Characterizing modernism as “a spiritual disease which is spreading like a plague across the globe,” Oldmeadow offers insightful criticisms of Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now and what he calls the “false prophets of modernity.”

About the Author: Harry Oldmeadow is Coordinator of Religious Studies at La Trobe University Bendigo. His previous publications include Journeys East: 20th Century Western Encounters with Eastern Religious Traditions and The Betrayal of Tradition: Essays on the Spiritual Crisis of Modernity. He lives in Mandurang in Central Victoria, Australia.
