Books like this are hard to review as they tread in areas where language simply becomes inadeuate Anything that is put on paper doesn t seem to capture it Huston Smith says in the introduction that the truthis buried so deep in the human composite that they cannot communicate it not in any way the majority will find convincing xv So we can resort to talking about things like duality the conflict of opposites resolution of contradictions in ultimate reality etc But ultimately transcendence is precisely that transcendent over and above encompassing everything yet at the same time and for that very reason indescribable There is the deepest of truths here and one that sometimes shows itself in flashes of illumination that contain ultimate happiness At a certain level religions are nothing than symbols that point to a higher reality For me personally it took the insights of Islam to reveal this but it could just as easily have evolved and still did in many ways out of my Christian past It could have come from any revealed religion Islam in its own right is incredibly universal even on the surface The ur an has many verses that point to the acceptance of all revealed religions as containing the primordial truth Schuon himself as a Sufi can be said to derive his primary language and inspiration from this perspectiveFocusing on one path over others is necessary on the level of lived experience This is one of the main arguments of the Perennialist approach to religion To communicate and reach the desired result there are systems in place that don t make spiritual sense when intermixed This is where the Perennialists led by Schuon and Rene Guenon among others should not be confused with a simplistic sentimental universality that is prone to compromise It makes it tough when searching for a way to apply their insights to a world that desperately needs it on the pragmatic exoteric level To them this higher transcendence is only truly realized by a few on an esoteric level This is not so much an elitist view as an observation and insight The exotericesoteric vertical progression is the key to understanding Schuon As Huston Smith lays out in the introduction this is the primary way Schuon looks at the differences in religion vs the common method of simply finding symbolic counterparts between different faiths His insight is that the manifested differences on the exoteric level of religion are ultimately resolved transcended and eliminated in the essence of the One There is great wisdom here through holding ideas in tension meaning that we can cling to one path as the truth while at the same time acknowledging that ultimate reality is beyond comprehension and big enough to include it all

I ll start off with this uote as a warning to other fools like me We wish to state clearly that this is never with the intention of convincing opponents whose minds are already made up but simply to enable those who wish to understand to get a glimpse of certain aspects of reality it is for the latter alone that we are writing and we decline to enter into polemics that would have no interest for our eventual contradictors or for ourself p 94 What this means is that Schuon is working with certain very controversial axioms eg the existence of God his Grace his Mercy and his Love which he does not even always explicitly state and which he has no intention of calling into uestion even for argument s sake So don t come into this book expecting to be convinced like I didAn experience similar to Buber s I and Thou in that both were very interesting books to read but are very hard to rate This is by no means a study but of an extended essay which is not to say it doesn t have research behind it Schuon seems I recognize my limitations to make any judgements on the matter to be astonishingly well versed in the three monotheisms the Abrahamic religions of Judaism Christianity and Islam which are the focal point of this work contrary to what the title and the cover art of this uest Book edition might imply but there are occasional glimpses into erudition on other religious traditions though to grasp their significance one should be better versed in religious studies than I By the way true to his heritage German Schuon writes in extremely long run on sentences and I seem to have been infectedI m sure the basic premise of the book is obvious Even though the whole is not very focused and even feels slightly unfinished it is packed with interesting observations and comments regarding the three monotheisms and their essential unity Even if one doesn t believe in this Unity with a capital u for the same reasons as Schuon one can still glean many a fascinating insight from the work For example Schuon asserts that Christianity is essentially an esoteric offshoot of Judaism With all the new information on primitive Christianity that s come to light in the half a century since Schuon wrote this book it has become a very attractive theory Islam Schuon sees as a synthesis of the exoteric and esoteric bents of Judaism and Christianity which emphasize Law and Mercy respectively This synthesis nature of Islam is Schuon claims the reason for its fundamentalism and totalitarianism so to speak the tendency of Islamic theocracy As a side note all this gives one the impression Schuon holds a sort of Hegelian view of religious historyLike with Buber a summation seems impossible A captivating read Challenging and eually rewarding

    Interesting book except that perennialism is an incredible illusion and fallacy in the sense that perennialists argue against egalitarianism in the social order but proceed to tell you that all religions are still eually valid in our time They tell you that they understand the absolutist claim in each religion but they are above it and relativise it and then proceed to deny being relativists They tell you that one has

    Perennialism or better especially Traditionalism is of an understandable answer to the challenges for religion after the enlightenment considering uestions and conclusions not posited before than an answer in itself To problematic is the mix of universalism and isolationism which mirrors in a telling way the thoughts of pan europeanists and ethnopluralists The main problem with these groups be they religious or politica
