"A magnificent introduction to the greatest religious thinker of our century." - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions "To have been brought up and educated in the modern world is to be, in some degree or other, inwardly divided against oneself; this book will be gratefully remembered, by the best of its readers, as a golden key which opens wide the door of escape from inner tensions and mental confusion." - Martin Lings, formerly Keeper of Oriental Manuscripts in the British Museum
