Frithjof Schuon

The Eye of the Heart: A New Translation with Selected Letters

Schuon's perspective is that of the sophia perennis or “perennial wisdom”, which is capable of discerning the spiritual intentions behind religious doctrines, forms, and practices. The essays collected here cover a wide range of subjects, including the fundamental principles of spiritual symbolism, the enigmatic nature of evil, questions on the afterlife, and many invaluable insights concerning the integration of everyday activities into the spiritual life. Schuon also evokes the sacredness of creation and the message of beauty, which when seen with the “eye of the heart”, leads back to God.
