The second edition of Vedanta in Light of Christian Wisdom—at lower cost than the first edition, and featuring a brand new cover—is now available.
In this unique monograph, Wolfgang Smith explores man’s quest of immortality, with religion properly so called. Drawing from recollections from his early years amongst Hindu monks, he introduces the Vedic religion, which he goes on to contrast with the Judeo-Christian, explaining their salient differences: in particular, how the two lead to antipodal ends, thereby disproving the “transcendent unity of religions” thesis. Basing himself upon an astounding exegesis discovered by Meister Eckhart, the author proceeds to show how the Vedantic categories are subsumed and transcended by the Trinitarian. These—admittedly esoteric—reflections terminate an unholy confusion which has long impeded our comprehension.
“Contrary to the ‘perennialist’ doctrine, Wolfgang Smith argues cogently that there are two ultimate paths leading to radically divergent Eschata: the Vedic to the nirvānic, and the Christian to Salvation. This rectifies a long-standing misconception of our time.”
—Bruno Bérard, author of A Metaphysics of the Christian Mystery
