Format: Paperback
Izutsu presents several essays dealing with the mystical and theological foundational beleifs of Sufism, in contrast with Vedantic and Buddhist Concepts. His attempt is to find harmony between key mystical concepts at the core of these beleif systems. The purpose of his efforts is based in his beleif that religious values are at the core of every society, and to find harmony among the worlds people we must do so through a deeper understanding of scripture and a reconiciliation of key theological concepts. THIS IS FAR TO DRY A REVIEW!!!! Izutsu genius though, not only takes us through these concepts, but you become so immersed simply in the explanation of Concepts like the Unity of being, or the paradox between a light and darkness presented here, that the reader is drawn to a place beyond intellectual understanding, to a place of 'knowing', that make a strong argument that these concepts may be seemingly in conflict, but are actually complimentary and open new windows of knowledge for the reader when understood this way. This book is a must for those intersted in universalist mysticism, and a deep understanding of core theological tenents in Sufism.
