About This Book

While this could be an undergraduate text its smooth style and illuminating exposition will attract the general reader. The consideration of how far Western religions and philosophical thinking can be enriched by ideas from India and China includes a clear account of the key tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Jainism, Yin and Yang and Confucianism. The expressed search of many Western people for a non-theistic sprituality is related to the universal mysticism characteristic of Eastern thought, but so often misunderstood in the West. A lucid exploration of great heights of and depths.
