Description - Treasures of Buddhism by Frithjof Schuon

In his classic work on the subject, perennialist author Frithjof Schuon explores the vast and varied landscape that is Buddhism. Every reader interested in Buddhism from whatever angle will here find much that speaks to his or her condition. Schuon presents Buddhism not as an historical artifact of the past, but as a living spiritual force. In describing the essentials of Buddhism, he frequently makes use of comparisons with other traditions, including Western religious thought. Th e rich and diverse world of Buddhist art-from its statuary to the tea ceremony-is a subject treated with particular importance. A valuable section on Shinto, the indigenous Japanese tradition of the "way of the gods," concludes the book.
