STATIONS OF WISDOM

In this book Schuon deals with a wide range of metaphysical, doctrinal and practical matters, such as, for example, methods of prayer or the discipline of charity. His profound insights into the great religious traditions are in the last chapter united into a picture of the six essential aspects of spiritual wisdom, which he says can be found in every true and complete way. In a time of increasing scepticism or anxious bewilderment and confusion in relation to the realm of the spirit this book will repay thoughtful study. Some readers will find that religious ‘problems’ when related to their appropriate levels will disappear; others that new questions and perceptions will awake. Whatever the religion a man may follow Schuon’s remarkable writings should provide much material for thought and no small measure of spiritual stimulus.

Schuon was considered as one of the very few Europeans qualified to give an authentic interpretation of Oriental doctrines and T. S. Eliot wrote of the first of M. Schuon’s books to appear in English that he had met no more impressive work in the field of the comparative study of Oriental and Occidental Religion.

Author

Frithj of Schuon

(Shaykh ‘Īsa Nūr al-Dīn)

(1907-1998)

Frithjof Schuon was born in Basle, Switzerland. At sixteen, he interrupted his classical education to earn a living as a designer in Paris, where he studied Arabic and Arabic calligraphy. Subsequent visits to North Africa and the East, prompted by his profound interest in the great religions of the world, resulted in many contacts with Sufi, Hindu and Buddhist authorities, in addition to important links he established with representatives of the spiritual legacy of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches; and two visits to the North American Plains Indians (he was officially adopted by the Lakota tribe) won him a number of close friends, particularly among the Sioux and the Crow.

Of his first book, The Transcendent Unity of Religions, which has been published in six different languages, T. S. Eliot wrote: “I have met with no more impressive work in the comparative study of Oriental and Occidental religion.” In addition to his books, he was a regular contributor to Studies in Comparative Religion, and also contributed to Etudes Traditionnells for over twenty years.
