The Perennial Philosophy is a manual for anyone interested in Eastern Philosophical and Religious Thought. It goes deep inside the heart and teachings of the most influential Mystics that ever lived.

The book is practical, clear and detailed, covering important subjects that would take many students years to collect from several different gulfpbc.com by: The Perennial Philosophy Forget self to discover the Self The book A Short History of Nearly Everything, by Bill Bryson, is essentially a history of science book.

This book is a history of philosophy and summary of major religion, organized into different points. In both, I ran out of room to review.

With great wit and stunning intellect, Aldous Huxley examines the spiritual beliefs of various religious traditions and explains them in terms that are personally meaningful.5/5(5).

Unfortunately, in this brief summary we cannot go into the detailed reasons why the Perennial Philosophy rejects unqualified exclusivist claims to the Truth by the different religions. What is important to note here are two prominent characteristics of the Perennial Philosophy: First, its starting point is an Absolute.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is open to the truth and has been confused by many writers who have said their path is the only way. The perennial philosophy helps us see the essential truths in the many great Christian mystics and sages from the east.

“The man who wishes to know the "that" which is "thou" may set to work in any one of three ways. He may begin by looking inwards into his own particular thou and, by a process of "dying to self" self in reasoning, self in willing, self in feeling come at last to knowledge of the self, the kingdom of the self, the kingdom of God that is within.

Jul 28,  · This book, I repeat, is an anthology of the Perennial Philosophy; but, though an anthology, it contans but few extracts from the writings of professional men of letters and, though illustrating a philosophy, hardly anything from the professional philosophers.

The reason for this is very simple/5. The Perennial philosophy, also referred to as perennialism and perennial wisdom, is a perspective in spirituality that views all of the world's religious traditions as sharing a single, metaphysical truth or origin from which all esoteric and exoteric knowledge and doctrine has grown.

Perennial Global, Reawakening the Roots of Leadership. We believe that connected leaders catalyze greater well-being for all. Jul 28,  · An inspired gathering of religious writings that reveals the "divine reality" common to all faiths, collected by Aldous Huxley "The Perennial Philosophy," Aldous Huxley writes, "may be found among the traditional lore of peoples in every region of the world, and in its fully developed forms it has a place in every one of the higher religions.".

Nihilism works for some people, but it clearly wasn't going to work for me. And that's where I would be if I hadn't found the contemplative versions of faith that are represented in this book. One of the more fascinating ideas that I come back to from The Perennial Philosophy is the idea that "knowledge is a function of being.".
