This brings together the intersections of the all the great religious/spiritual teachings and principles through the ages. I find it to offer clarity and confidence in one's pursuit on their spiritual path

Huxley gathers the wisdom of the ages so you don't have to, and provides some insight to the questions that have been on humankinds mind since we first gained consciousness.

This book answers the question, "What are all the major mystical religions searching for?" It contains fabulous quotes, and even though I consider myself a Christian mystic, I am not put off or side-tracked by the use of other religious texts.

Hardcopy of 1945 edition in excellent condition. I first learned of philosophy with this book years ago. It was like having an old friend talk to me about important matters. The book was wrapped in protective paper. Delighted!

Some time in the last century, Thoreau lamented that the "Bibles of mankind" were neglected even among those making a serious attempt to understand the Jewish and Christian ones. In the years since, many anthologies and expositions of sacred writings have endeavoured to repair the gap, few perhaps as successfully as this one. Like a Boethius for the modern age, Huxley delineates the universal and timeless truths enunciated by the sages of preceding centuries, interspersed with his own perceptive and serenely illuminating remarks. This is a book to be carefully pondered and studied with others. I can think of no other which so deserves to be the Vade Mecum of the spiritual journey -- the road map to guide you onward. Ultimately your conception of the "perennial philosophy" may differ from Huxley's, but I am sure you will value his contribution toward its elucidation, and may well agree that several of his original passages merit inclusion in its eternal canon.

This book remains a useful and applicable classic in human spirituality. It demonstrates the common ground for peace, tolerance, and a true sense of syncretism in the spirit of Pico, Cusanus, et al. As per Huxley and those he notes: we are one humanity of the One, and it is within our ability to accept and comprehend the essential spiritual connection we all share.

I had no idea this well-known writer and scientist was a brilliant spiritual writer. I found it informative and inspiring.

A great classic, this book perhaps better than any other this century explains the unity
of all mystical experiences and of all religions.
