    So far, one of my favorite works by Schuon. He covers much from ethics/virtues, the metaphysical necessity of evil in society/horizontal reality, polytheism,criticism on different aspects of Modernity as well very genius comparisons between the world religions. I took tons of tones and wrote whole passages in a notebook because his thoughts are something to contemplate in order to sink in fully. The glossary at the end of the book was very helpful-defintely learned a lot more sacred vocabulary- and the 7th entry in the appendix concerning the ability to practice any and/ many spiritual traditions while being centered in true esoterism, was a marvelous concept which has inspired me and my plural approach to spiritual practices. All traditionists should read this.

    Extraits de lettres, de notes de lecture, et réflexions très intéressantes et précise - notamment au niveau psychologique, émotionnel et moral. C'est là où Schuon excelle vraiment (et ce, dans beaucoup de ses livres).D'autres trouveront la partie doctrinale et métaphysique meilleure, mais personnellement je n'aime pas trop mélanger la harira et le curry.
