Product description

This classic masterpiece on the subject of comparative religion explores the essential elements and teachings of the world's predominant faiths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, and the native traditions of the Americas, Australia, Africa, and Oceania. Emphasizing the inner rather than institutional dimensions of these religions, this survey devotes special attention to Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, and the teachings of Jesus. The unique appeal and gifts of each of the traditions and their hold on the human heart and imagination are conveyed with wisdom and respect. Con un estilo claro, ameno, y didactico, esta obra clasica desgrana todas las grandes tradiciones de sabiduria de la humanidad, incluyendo hinduismo, budismo, confucianismo, taoismo, judaismo, cristianismo, islamismo y las religiones tribales de America del Norte y del Sur, Australia, Africa, e Oceania. De cada religion expone sus lineas maestras: las doctrinas filosoficas, la etica, la dinamica historica, las instituciones, y los caminos misticos. Hay apartados especiales para las distintas corrientes y sensibilidades de cada religion. Toda la obra esta salpicada de inteligentes reflexiones acerca de los simbolos y los valores religiosos, ademas de indagaciones sobre las similitudes y diferencias entre las distintas doctrinas.
