With great wit and stunning intellect - drawing on a diverse array of faiths, including Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Christian mysticism, and Islam - Huxley examines the spiritual beliefs of various religious traditions and explains how they are united by a common human yearning to experience the divine. The Perennial Philosophy includes selections from Meister Eckhart, Rumi, and Lao Tzu, as well as the Bhagavad Gita, Tibetan Book of the Dead, Diamond Sutra, and Upanishads, among many others.

LOVED it! Huge fan of Huxley, this book is why.
I just cannot get enough of Huxley's high brow take on philosophy and this perspective on spirituality. This book is written in an objective tone and critical of the obvious and parallels the contrary for delightful aspirations. Aldous knows how to place harsh next to beauty, and respect for all kinds. Plus his humor is well worth a second read.

This book is full of great insight. The narrator was good but i felt he often read to quickly, sometimes sounded pretentious, and really realllly butchered indian/hindu/sanskrit words. His french and latin sounded amazing though. This audiobook contains amazing , thought provoking truths. I will likely buy the physical book and read at my own pace/leisure to get an even fuller understanding . Overall , this is an excellent book, good narrator, and i definitely recommend it!
