One can find the ideas of divinity at the essence of all things, reincarnation and life’s goal being the cessation of all desire by yogic practice. All of these have been adapted, in a somewhat simplified form, by the new-age.
But a surprising amount of the text is devoted to more abstract matters: theology, philosophic anthropology and metaphysics. In other words, there are many parts that could have been part of Plato’s dialogues or referenced and discussed by Aristotle.
Perhaps the dichotomy between Western abstraction and Eastern practice is itself an oversimplification, at least on the basis of this text.
In short, a fascinating work whose greater diffusion should help falsify the idea that there is some kind of irreducible divide between East and West.
