FUNDAMENTAL SYMBOLS -The Universal Language of Sacred Science

FUNDAMENTAL SYMBOLS -The Universal Language of Sacred Science

This long awaited volume is presented here in English for the first time; and, since it constitutes one of Guenon’s greatest works, its publication must be counted as one of the great literary events of this era. In this work, probably the most significant in a modern Western language concerning symbolism, Guenon deals with the metaphysical and cosmological meaning of symbols drawn from traditions as far apart as the Greek and the Buddhist, the Druid and the Islamic. To glance at the chapter headings is to be impressed by the wealth and Variety of the contents— The Science of Letters, Symbolic Weapons., The Wild Boar & the Bear, The Language of the Birds, The Bridge and the Rainbow— are but a few of the seventy-six chapters. A striking aspect of the book is that it gives a new significance to so many of the objects, natural and man-made, with which we are inescapably surrounded in our daily life. Sensitive readers will be enriched by the immense perspective which is here offered them, both in time and space; and they will see the book above all as an introduction to the spiritual life, an introduction which fascinates and compels. For some souls it will open doors which no other key could unlock. This is a major addition to the English corpus of Guenon’s works. *** ‘Works of Rene Guenon present the writings of one of the greatest sages of our time, whose voice is even more important today than when he was alive.” —Huston Smith
