Description

The unprecedented collision of religions in the contemporary world creates both dangerous antagonisms and new possibilities for spiritual growth and renewal. Such possibilities can only be realized through a reaffirmation of the perennial philosophy which celebrates religious diversity whilst recognizing that all integral traditions are informed by the same universal principles and values. Mediations examines the ways in which some of the 20th century's most prescient thinkers have responded to the challenges of religious pluralism. It presents an overview of the pre-eminent modern perennialists - Ren Gu non, Ananda Coomaraswamy and Frithjof Schuon - and explores the contributions made to inter-religious understanding by figures as diverse as Carl Jung, Rudolf Otto, Mircea Eliade, Allen Ginsberg, and Swami Abhishiktananda. These provocative essays are addressed to all those concerned with our global spiritual welfare and with the development of a harmonious world community which cherishes our differences whilst affirming that Wisdom of the Ages which is the patrimony of all humankind.
