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.
