Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines
Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines
Description
About the Book:

The present work is reissue of English translation of Rene Guenon's work, Introduction Generale a I'Etude des Doctrines Hindoues.

This work instead of treating the Hindu doctrines as a "special field of research" with a view to derive results that could be of least importance to ordinary men takes an entirely different approach. The author starts out with quite other ends in view requiring an entirely different method for their realization, as well as an entirely different angle of approach. As a result this book just as well serves as a key to the understanding of any of the traditional doctrines, or of them all. As for the "Hindu doctrines" which cover only one part of the work have simply been selected to exemplify the principles and workings of traditional civilization.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
