Author: Frithjof Schuon Publisher: World Wisdom Year: 1992 Pages: 90 Printed: USA ISBN: 0-941531-12-7 Binding: Soft Cover Book Condition: New Weight: 170gr. Description from the publisher: Comparable to a meditative stroll in a garden, this anthology of excerpts brings together relatively short, jewel-like passages from Schuon’s works both published and previously unpublished. In choosing the excerpts, care has been taken to include texts concerning the spiritual life in its simpler and more concrete aspects, so that no one is excluded from the insights offered here. An important complement to the author’s metaphysical perspective, this is a work that speaks directly to our thirst for meaning and profundity.
“The beauty of the sacred is a symbol or a foretaste of, and sometimes a means to, the joy that God alone procures.”
