Product Description

Imported from USA

From the Back Cover

Huston Smith's masterpiece explores the essential elements and teachings of the world's predominant faiths, including
Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the native traditions of Australia, Africa,
Oceania, and the Americas.

Emphasizing the inner—rather than the institutional—dimension of these religions, Smith devotes special attention to Zen

the traditions and reveals their hold on the human heart and imagination.
