Description


No particular religion is herein advocated or set up as archetypal. Although An Invitation to Dialogue between East and West is concerned with four oriental religions, its approach is neither like Schopenhauer's which took Christianity as the highest. Instead, it wishes to transcend religious differences, in order to get at the commonality of Oriental religious mind and to put forth the hypothesis that the deepest intention of Oriental religious culture is to reach the life of nonduality.
