Description

The current interest in Zen and the popularity of Buddhism in the West are an understandable reaction to the artificiality and ugliness prevalent in the world today and also to various concepts nowadays judged rightly or wrongly as inoperative. Those seeking an antidote to new-age materialism and the empty claims of pseudo-spirituality will find it in Schuon's incisive discernment of the intrinsic orthodoxy of Buddhism. Far from discounting the providential mythology of the person of the Buddha the author relates its historical - and sometimes contradictory - phenomena to their celestial roots in the Divine Qualities and to the human virtues that form the necessary framework for a spiritual life. Notions crucial to Buddhism such as suffering and its cessation void-form and nirvana-samsara are elucidated in the light of the Vedantic distinction Atma-Maya providing an important key to understanding the differences between Western philosophical individualism and the serenity of Eastern metaphysics. Here is a perspective that stands above sectarian factionalism while at the same time opening unique insights into the multi-faceted spiritual universe that is Buddhism.
