From as far back in time as history records, human beings have sought the truth-some order or entity that unifies all existence. Sometimes these have been codified in certain writings approved as scriptural, other less centralised traditions have collections of sayings and stories, still others have passed on their wisdom orally. This collection contains all three types of tradition, providing a unique overall view of the collective spiritual wisdom of humanity. Despite the variety of form and style, the common insights shine brilliantly through, and the introductions to each tradition provide a succinct summary of how we can relate this wisdom to our own lives today. The volume contains twelve chapters, each with thirty one readings, so it can be read with ease through the year as a means of education, reference or inspiration. An introduction to each tradition covers origins, teachings, expressions and themes that are relevant tor us today, written in a readable style suitable for most age groups. Gives equal weight to different religions traditions, including highlights from: The Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita, Buddhist Scriptures, Zen and Taoist Collections, African Oral Traditions, The poems of Zarathustra, The Hebrew Scriptures and Hasidic Literature, The New Testament and The Letters of the Early Fathers, Christian Mysticism, The Quran, Sufic Mysticism.
